iHeartMedia Boston’s AM 680 WRKO Announces The New Sports Betting Program  

“The Gambler With Adam Kaufman” 

iHeartMedia Boston’s AM 680 WRKO, “The Voice of Boston,” announced today that nights on WRKO will feature a local sports betting program hosted by  Adam Kaufman, with contributions from Dan Watkins and Brian Antonelli. “The Gambler with  Adam Kaufman” will begin broadcasting on Monday, May 1, 2023 at 10 p.m. ET.  

This is Boston’s first and only nightly sports betting show airing live on WRKO Monday through  Thursday from 10 p.m. – 12 a.m. In addition, a companion podcast can be streamed the following morning on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are available. 

“The Gambler with Adam Kaufman” will include Kaufman hosting and providing his expertise  on the local sports scene, while Antonelli and Watkins contribute their local team fanaticism  and commentary on navigating the pitfalls of betting like a fan. Kaufman, Antonelli and Watkins will continue to be heard on additional iHeartRadio stations in Boston. 

“Everyone I talk to is now betting on sports,” said Bill Flaherty, Director of Operations, News, Talk and Sports at iHeartMedia Boston. “With the interest at a fever pitch, I can’t think of a  better time to launch this show.” 

“There’s no greater platform than live sports talk radio and, since January, there’s no greater  obsession in and around Massachusetts than sports betting,” said Adam Kaufman, Sports  Director at iHeartMedia Boston. “I’ve been fortunate to spend many years of my career working  in both areas and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them intersect now. Boston is ready for a  nightly gambling show. I’m honored to host it and can’t wait to sweat bets with listeners,  industry experts, and our incredible team starting May 1.” 

“The Gambler with Adam Kaufman” can be heard worldwide on the iHeartRadio app, WRKO.com, and every weekday in Boston on AM 680 WRKO.
