SportsTalk on Trib Live Radio Launches Today UPDATED: Tomorrow; Interesting Lineup

Chris Mack and Rick Tocchet will be live at 9am today Tomorrow, as Total Trib media enters the broadcasting world. There hasn't been a ton of hoopla about this. The only reason we know about it is because our boy Chris Mack is launching today. [ The Chris Mack ]

According to the The Trib, content will loop 24 hours a day.

From 9 a.m. to noon, hosts are Chris Mack and former Penguins player Rick Tocchet. From noon to 1 p.m., John Steigerwald will be talking all things sports. From 1 to 5 p.m., Ken Laird, former Steelers player Deshea Townsend and former Pitt basketball player Julius Page are hosts.

John Steigerwald's quote about the show:

Steigerwald said his show will be "sports talk for regular human beings."

Regardless of that quote, this move is a sleek one by The Trib, and it could pay off. With the broadcast seemingly Internet-only and free of FCC rules, Rick Tocchet could become huge.

All we know is this: It is already better than the Tim Benz Show.
