George Plaster will return to 650 AM WSM beginning July 30 for a weekly sports talk radio show that will air each Sunday evening, beginning at 5 p.m. The call-in show, Sports Night, bears the same title of the previous long-running show Plaster helmed for 27 years on two Nashville radio stations. WSM Program Director Jonathan Shaffer will serve as show co-host.

The show will also be broadcast online at wsmonline.com, and via the station’s mobile app.

Plaster got his start in radio at 650 AM WSM as a reporter for the Waking Crew with host Ralph Emery. More recently, in addition to the role of sports talk show host, Plaster has been a radio and television play-by-play broadcaster for several college teams. He also serves as the Associate Director of Athletics for Belmont University, a position he will continue to hold in conjunction with his role at 650 AM WSM.

“No matter the season or year, there’s always great stuff to talk about in sports,” Plaster said. “I’m thrilled Jonathan is going to be part of the show with me, and I’m excited to get back in the studio and talk with the fans. I know I’ve got the station’s complete confidence in what I want to do and I know they’re going to allow me to do this the way I want to do it. That’s the only way I would have agreed to this show.”

“We’re excited to welcome George back to the airwaves of WSM,” Shaffer said. “When you have the chance to add a legendary talent to a legendary signal, you do it.”

“I always liked WSM because of its strong signal, and the thought that I’ve got a chance to talk to people in 38 states and half of Canada just intrigues the daylights out of me,” Plaster said.
