The Watchdog Mission
The mission for The Watchdog Network is simple – to offer the Upper Ohio Valley the day's news, sports, and top topics – each and every day – and to allow the region's residents to own a voice that will be heard.
Sam Zavatsky and Brad Leonard begin each weekday at 6 a.m. with the morning's top news and sports headlines, and then "The Morning Show with Howard Monroe" hits upon local, state and national topics and issues from 7-10 a.m.
Between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. each weekday, the Watchdog Network offers the listeners a choice: On AM 1600 WKKX, "A Whole Lotta Luv" with John Blackmore (10 a.m.-Noon), and the "Bill DiFabio Variety Show" from Noon-2 p.m. On AM 1370 WVLY, "Talkline" with Hoppy Kercheval is broadcast from 10 a.m. – Noon, and then "Good Day with Doug Stephan" is on from Noon – 2 p.m.
At 2 p.m. each weekday, The Watchdog Network reunites once again for "Steve Novotney Live" from 2-5 p.m., followed by "Tee-Time" with Teresa Toriseva from 5-7p.m.
As the Official Radio Station of the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference, every weekend – and several days per week – live coverage of local sporting events – high school football, basketball, wrestling, baseball – can be heard as well as college and professional sports. The Watchdog Network serves as the valley's affiliates for Yahoo Sports, the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Cleveland Browns, the Dallas Cowboys, and Notre Dame football and basketball.
