About Us

Sports Radio 1180 the VLZ is the number one destination for Big Orange sports talk! There isn’t another station in Knoxville that offers the level of talent and insight as the VLZ. The mission of 1180 is to inform and entertain listeners with everything that is going on with the Vols.

Jayson Swain and Seth Stokes start the day off the right way with the Swain Event from 7-10 AM every weekday. You cannot get the perspective of a former Tennessee player every day anywhere else. Tony Basilio a.k.a The Dean a.k.a The Voice of the Common Fan entertains and informs you at lunch daily from 11-1.

Dave Hooker and Tyler Wyatt bring interesting view points and opinions while keeping you entertained during lunch daily on The Dave Hooker Show from 1-3. On your way home keep it locked on the VLZ and let RTI radio recap the day’s events and bring you news and opinions from Daniel Lewis and the folks at Rocky Top Insider every day from 4-6 pm.

For a night cap tune in to the Chuck Oliver Show from 6-8 pm. The “king of college football” Chuck Oliver gives you great insight and opinion on everything going on with the SEC and the ACC. No other show in Knoxville gives you the info on a broad range of programs like the Chuck Oliver Show presented by Southern Sports Today.

You can listen to Sports Radio 1180 the VLZ on 1180 AM on the dial, streaming live on the site and on Tune In Radio.
