Some of ESPN Radio's sports talk programming will move to sports talk station WBGG-AM (970) starting Jan. 1.

ESPN's syndicated programming is currently heard on WEAE-AM (1250), which dropped its local sports talk programming in September.

The new WBGG lineup will feature ESPN's "Mike and Mike in the Morning," hosted by Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, in morning drive, and Scott Van Pelt in the afternoon.

Several of WBGG's current local sports talk shows will remain -- the "Joe Bendel Show" and "The Locker Room With Tunch and Wolf" with Tunch Ilkin and Craig Wolfley, along with the syndicated "Jim Rome Show."

The current ESPN programming will continue on WEAE until the end of the year, when the syndicated children's radio format Radio Disney, currently heard on WWCS-AM (540), moves to that frequency.

Here's the 2011 WBGG weekday lineup:

• 6-10 a.m.-- "Mike & Mike in the Morning"

• 10 a.m.-noon -- "Tunch and Wolf"

• Noon-2 p.m. -- Jim Rome

• 2-4 p.m. -- Scott Van Pelt

• 4-7 p.m. -- Joe Bendel
