CLTV to Launch “Sports Feed” with Jarrett Payton & Josh Frydman

CLTV, Chicago’s 24 hour news channel, is launching a new nightly sports talk show called “Sports Feed” which will air Sunday through Thursday from 6-7pm, starting Sunday, June 14.  It will be co-hosted by Chicago’s Very Own Jarrett Payton and Josh Frydman.  “Sports Feed” will be presented nightly by the Bob Rohrman Auto Group.

“’Sports Feed’ is CLTV’s new informative, interactive and fast-paced sports show that will focus on Chicago sports and its fans,” commented Jennifer Lyons, WGN-TV/CLTV News Director.  “The show will not only give you the day’s sports news in a creative way but also show how fans are reacting across the country.”

“Sports Feed” will offer CLTV viewers all the action and reaction to the day’s sports five nights a week.  Coverage will include all teams broadcast on WGN-TV: Cubs, White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks, as well as the other Chicago pro teams like the Bears along with college and high school teams.

Jarrett Payton, a Chicago native, currently co-hosts The Beat which airs on WGN Radio on Sundays at 3pm.  Before joining WGN Radio, Payton had his own sports talk program on ChicagolandSportsRadio.com called the Jarrett Payton Show.  Jarrett attended the University of Miami where he was a running back, like his father, Chicago Bear great, Walter Payton.

Josh Frydman, also a Chicagoland native, joined WGN-TV in October 2014 as a sports producer.  Most recently, Josh was a sports anchor and reporter at KFVS-TV in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Josh also spent time at the NBC affiliate stations in Memphis, Tennessee and Columbia, Missouri as a sports anchor, reporter and producer. He graduated from the University of Missouri School of Journalism.
