New sports talk radio show to debut in Twin Cities Jan. 4

The show will air during the afternoon drive Monday-Friday, and at noon Saturdays.

A couple of longtime Minnesota sports broadcasters are taking their weekend show to the airwaves as a daily sports talk show that will debut next week. 

Eric Nelson and Wally Langfellow will debut "Ten Thousand Takes" on AM 1440-KYCR at 5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 4. The show will air from 5-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and at noon Saturdays. 

The duo has been co-hosting Minnesota Score Radio since 2002, though it was airing primarily on Friday nights and weekends on AM 1440. The show has also aired on AM 1450/FM 99.3 KNSI in St. Cloud and on AM 1230/FM 98.1 KWSN in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. 

Nelson and Langfellow have been staples in the Minnesota sports talk/reporting scene for years, with Nelson routinely appearing on WCCO-AM radio and reporting from sporting events of all kinds. Langfellow was the intermission studio host of the Minnesota North Stars in the 1980s prior to launching Minnesota Score Radio in 2002. 

Langfellow also does play-by-play for high school sports on AM 1440 KYCR. 

According to Radio Locator, KYCR has a 5,000-watt signal that is best heard during the daytime in the immediate Twin Cities metro area.
