Still growing after all these years, The Sports Junkies — featuring John Auville, Eric Bickel, Jason Bishop and John-Paul Flaim — have dominated the Washington, D.C. market since 1996.

In a return to syndication, The Sports Junkies are picking up the Norfolk-Virginia Beach market (No. 45 in the U.S.), a welcomed addition to their growing radio audience.

In Norfolk, the show will air on Sinclair's Sports Radio 96.5FM and 850AM, WTAR.

"We're excited to offer the Sports Junkies show to the audiences of great stations like Sports Radio 96.5 and 850 WTAR," said Chris Kinard, Program Director, 106.7 The Fan. "This is a natural brand extension for the Junkies, who have amassed a large and loyal following on terrestrial radio, streaming, podcast, and television over nearly 23 years. We believe their show is a great fit for any sports station in the mid-Atlantic region."

Bob Sinclair, owner of the Norfolk stations, said "We are thrilled to bring the Sports Junkies to Hampton Roads and add them to our already stellar lineup. The show has been one of the best sports programs in the country for over 20 years and provides amazing coverage of the Redskins, Capitals, Nationals, Wizards, and more. And with so many of our listeners being fans of those teams, they will fit in perfectly here in the 757".

The program's live premiere in Norfolk is Monday, January 29th. The Sports Junkies can be heard Monday through Friday each week from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m.
