A Little Rock TV station's sports director is set to replace a former Razorback player as the newest co-host of a weekly radio program, according to a news release.

Fox 16's Wess Moore will work with current host Justin Acri and producer Matt Travis on The Zone, KABZ-FM 103.7 The Buzz said.

Moore, who will retain his role with the Fox affiliate, is replacing Pat Bradley, the show’s longtime host and a former Arkansas Razorbacks basketball player.

Bradley is returning to his hometown of Boston, Mass., the radio station said. He has been with The Buzz since 2007 and will continue to work as a contributor for the station and as an analyst for the SEC Network, the release states.

Bradley helped the Razorbacks combine for an 84-47 record from the 1995-96 through 1998-99 seasons, with three NCAA Tournament appearances and an NIT Final Four appearance. He ranks fifth on Arkansas' career scoring list with 1,765 points and is the Razorbacks' career leader with 366 three-point baskets.

Moore said he was excited to join the station.

“The Buzz has some of best personalities in the business and I’m honored to get the opportunity to work alongside them,” he said in the release. “I look forward to being a part of The Zone with Justin Acri, who’s created an entertaining, smart show engaging sports fans on all levels.”

Moore has covered Arkansas sports for 15 years and was named the 2016 Arkansas Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sports Media Association, according to the station.

Moore’s first day on the show will be Monday. The Zone airs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. weekdays.

    I had stopped listening to the Zone when Pat left, the first time, can't stand Justin Acri, and he should have been off the air a long time ago.... Moore is not any better there is a reason I don't watch Fox 16... My Radio will be tuned the 98.1 from 10 to 1 each day...

    Pat Bradley has really done well here in Arkansas and he will be missed. I remember when Pat first started appearing on various radio shows in Little Rock as the PR guy for the short-lived Rimrockers. He was green but enthusiastic! He has since become a popular broadcaster in Little Rock on radio and regionally on SEC-TV. He's also a really nice guy. Bets of luck Pat.

    Knucklehead - Wess Moore is really good at what he does. Looking forward to hearing him on a radio station that actually has a signal.

    Really enjoyed Pat Bradley as a Hog ball player and as a sports guy. He's added to our State by doing so. Best of luck, Pat, and you CAN go home again.

    Should've given Wess Moore the afternoon time slot. The two morons who do that show are pathetic.

    I do like Wess, but the only reason I would ever listen to the Buzz was Pat Bradley. Now, they have no credibility at all. A bunch of mostly never have been white dudes talking about sports and birthday trivia. Do the afternoon guys (that come on before the illiterate drive-time guys) even have a connection to the state? They are really, really bad either way.

    What a joke of a station, but it probably fits one of the most uneducated listening areas in one of the dumbest states in America.
