"The SimonCast" will feature Simon's fact-based opinions on the local and national topics of the day, and his ability to "tell it like it is" in a fair and comprehensive manner will continue to be an
essential element of the program. With the addition of "The SimonCast", Empire Sports Network enhances its unwavering commitment to the best in sports talk
and news. Simon's experience in the Western New York market, and the versatility he possesses in talking about subjects outside the area, is a bonus to the Empire Sports programming lineup.
Viewers will be able to take part in the best sports show in radio, "The Sharpshooters", featuring hockey talk with Simon along with Jim Kelley and Mike Robitaille on Sabres gamedays from 4:00-6:00 p.m.
Fans can also look for "The Steve Tasker Show" during football season and "The Larry Felser Show" as the noted sportswriter joins Simon weekly.
The show will not only benefit from callers at every corner of the USA, but also from the visual medium of television. Highlights and video clips, together with high-tech graphics containing pertinent
information, will allow the audience to enrich its viewing experience.
Additionally, Jim Brinson will contribute live updates twice an hour from the Empire Sports Network
studios. Viewers will get even more sports coverage periodically throughout the three-hour program with a sports ticker that will appear at the bottom of the screen.
Empire Sports Network fans can now enjoy the expertise, contagious energy and enthusiasm of Western New York's top sports talk personality…"The SimonCast", Monday through Friday from
3:00-6:00 p.m., only on Empire Sports Network. Howard Simon…He's everywhere!
Empire Sports Report
"Empire Sports Report", a daily sports news show, now airs three times each weeknight on Empire Sports Network with an early
edition at 6:30 p.m., our familiar 10:30 p.m. slot and a bonus late night edition at 11:30 p.m.
Hosted at 6:30pm by Jason Bristol and at 10:30pm and 11:30pm by Josh Mora, "Empire Sports Report" is known for its special segments such as "The Sabres Edge", "Empire Outdoors",
"Football Frenzy", "High School Hoopla", "Scholastic Skates" and "Plays of the Week".
The early edition brings you more to the story than your local three-minute sportscast. "Empire Sports
Report" has the time to give you the whole story after you get the ten-second sound byte from the other guys.
At 10:30 we bring you highlights, interviews and scores from completed games BEFORE you get them anywhere else, then at 11:30 p.m., the late night 30-minute "Empire Sports Report" provides a complete
wrap-up of everything local, regional and national with MORE than you get anywhere else.
Each of the sportscasts uses a live, fast-paced format to cover the day's top sports stories providing
breaking news from the local and national landscape, updates, highlights, final scores and features. The Buffalo Sabres, Buffalo Bills, Big Four and Syracuse University basketball, Arena Football, minor
league baseball, the National Lacrosse League, the American Hockey League and college and high school athletics are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to information for the Upstate New York sports fan.
"Empire Sports Report"… three times a night, every weeknight!
