George Plaster, veteran sports radio host, who will be inducted into the Tennessee Radio Hall of Fame this year, will leave Nashville Sports Radio (WNSR 560-AM/95.9-FM) to join Main Street Media of Tennessee this summer.
“The George Plaster Show,” which has been a staple of Nashville sports radio since 1989, will air on Main Street Media’s streaming platforms beginning in mid-July.
“We couldn’t be more excited for George to join Main Street Media,” said Dave Gould, Founder and Owner of Main Street Media of Tennessee. “George is a sports icon in Nashville, and we think our audience will really enjoy listening to him and the shows we have planned.”
Joining him in the move will be Plaster co-host and former Vanderbilt football coach Watson Brown.
“The George Plaster Show” airs Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. as a streaming TV show on Main Street Media’s OTT channel, YouTube, and social media.
Plaster will host additional shows focusing on high school sports, professional sports, and a range of other topics.
“I am delighted at the opportunity to join Watson Brown in this new venture,” said Plaster. “I’m really impressed with Main Street Media; it’s an incredible media story. I also want to say a big thank you to Ted Johnson and the WNSR staff for a really fun sports chat experience. I can’t wait to start at Main Street Media.
In addition to hosting his daily show, Plaster was the play-by-play announcer for Vanderbilt, Memphis State and Georgia Tech and was named by Talkers Magazine as one of America’s 250 Most Influential Radio Hosts.
