The daily framework will be fairly standard, with talk shows during morning and evening drive-time and live events at night (and in the afternoon when possible).

The talk shows will have significant call-in component, which is great for fan engagement but has the potential to turn shows into complaint departments. (See: night games, officiating, Pac-12 Networks distribution, officiating and, um, officiating.)

The live events will focus on football and menís basketball, but not at the exclusion of the Olympic sports: There will be a mix, but it sounds like the two majors will be the prime drivers, which they should be and must be.

It will be an adjustment from local radio discussing Gunther's cat or rural Idaho chat with Hans and Scotty, but I may have to give this fancy digital radio a try.
