JD Hayworth hits it out of the park on “Mighty 1090”

JD Hayworth

Arizona favorite wins in San Diego

JD Hayworth has been signed to join Broadcast Company of the Americas Sports/Talker “The Mighty 1090″ (XEPRS-AM/Rosarito, Baja, CA). The recovering politician turned talk radio host will be teamed up with So Cal Sports radio legend Lee “Hacksaw” Hamilton in mornings on BCA’s south-of-the-border-based San Diego Sports/Talker. While Hayworth is perhaps best known for his years as a U.S. Congressman from Arizona and as a conservative Talk radio host at KFYI/Phoenix, KSFO/San Francisco and other stations, his move to “The Mighty 1090″ actually marks a return to Sports broadcasting for JD who began his broadcast career as a TV Sports anchor in Greenville, SC, Cincinnati and Phoenix prior to his run for political office.

“It’s a back-to-the-future moment for me, returning to Sports and teaming with my old pal Hacksaw,” Hayworth told NTS MediaOnline Today. “Not only do I get to join the starting lineup on one of America’s great Sports/Talk stations, BCA management is also allowing me to ‘pinch hit’ on Political Talk stations from time-to-time as available, so how great is that!?”

JD begins programming on March 18th. Read the station’s announcement here.

    Best wishes, JD! This is an area you know well, since it’s where you got your broadcasting start. I’m glad you’ll still have some flexibility to do occasional political guest hosting around the country, as well. Whenever I’ve seen postings here of where you’ll be, I’ve made it a point to tune in. You’ve influenced many of us. Thanks.

    JD is also a fine teacher. I’ve learned so much from listening to his radio commentaries. I hope SRAZ will continue to let know us when he does political hosting. Best to you, JD.

    Isn’t it a Mexican station?

      And aren’t you the Sultan of Saudi Arabia?

    • AZ Conservative Guy says:

      Yah, you fool. They broadcast in Spanish. JD has been taking classes at Berlitz foreign language school. Get a life, Westnash!

      You should be as patriotic as Congressman Hayworth is. Why don’t you buy his book. You might learn a thing or two. Have you ever written anything other than sniping and leftwing comments?

        (XEPRS-AM/Rosarito, Baja, CA). Check your geography

      • eubykdisop says:

        As always, you’re dead wrong, Westy.

        “XEPRS-AM, known as The Mighty 1090 (formerly XX Sports Radio), is an American-operated sports talk radio station targeting English-speaking listeners in San Diego. Its signal originates from Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico, and it broadcasts in English out of studios in San Diego.”

        Check your geography, Westy. San Diego is in The United States of America. Duh!

      As “Observer” said to me about Westnash:

      “Observer says:

      Bravo, euby! You had this guy nailed as a liberal early on. How right you were…despite all of his protestations to the contrary.”

      Westnash would post at Daily Kos… but he can’t pass their literacy test, LOL!

    Ronald Reagan was also a sportscaster!

  5. Dennis O'Brien says:

    With JD’s extensive sports background, this sounds like a perfect fit for one of his multiple talents! San Diego folks are fortunate to have him among them! We certainly appreciate him here.

  6. Observer says:

    Good luck, JD. “The Mighty 1090″ will be mightier yet with you onboard!

  7. Realist says:

    It’s truly unfortunate the voters in Arizona couldn’t see through all the BS & lies from McShame and elect JD to the US Senate. If ever there was a born leader…it’s JD. I truly believe he would have made a positive impact on the direction in which this country is headed. He would have been right there with Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio leading the conservative fight!
    I wish him all the best in San Deigo!
    JD you’re are a Great American!!!

    • Teller Of Truth says:

      Very well stated, Realist. JD would have made us proud, whereas I cringe at the mention of the so called Maverick McCain. He’s not only a vile guy, he’s also a gaffe machine. But as the old saying goes, “money talks and bullsh*t walks.” The fact that he keeps getting elected reminds me of a well worn but worth repeating adage attributed to Plato:
      “One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics
      is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”

      That fits today’s unfortunate voter apathy and what we end up with as a result, to a “T.”

      Imagine Arizona with conservative and bright Hayworth as our US Senator. The reality is it’s impossible to compete with the nearly $30 million McCain spent. Big lobby bucks underwrite the “green” power of incumbency.

    If you and your family are moving to the San Diego area … well, it sure is that area’s gain for certain and our area’s loss as well as our state and our nation’s loss as you truly cared about “what is right and true” & what is happening politcally. We hope you don’t give up the political desire to maybe run for Congress as we need fine, good upstanding men like you in there to help bring them back to reality and to bring the “people’s message” to D.C. They seem to have forgotten what it is like in the “normal” world and everyday life. Well deserved, J. D., as you’ve never compromised your principles nor values. Wishing you and your family God speed, His protection, and the very best of everything He has for you and your family!
