Kyle Schassburger is best known as the host of “One on One with The Schass” – the flagship afternoon drive program on WSJS Sports that leans heavily on diverse local opinions, listener interaction, and entertaining views on men’s culture (the things you won’t admit out loud, but he will).
Schassburger became the Operations Manager of Curtis Media Group in the Triad in August 17’, one year after getting his start with CMG as a fill-in host and newsman. He is entering year four with Winston-Salem based IMG College – where he’ll be providing pre/half/post game coverage as the Blue Devils’ studio host/ producer for football and basketball on the Duke IMG Sports Network.
Schassburger, his fiancé and three children returned to North Carolina in August 16’ after his family was severely impacted by catastrophic flooding in Southern Louisiana. While in Baton Rouge, he delivered morning sports updates and sold advertising for Cumulus Media. ESPN’s College Gameday also contracted him for stage hosting when airing its live radio program in Death Valley before LSU games. He also has experience managing multiple fitness clubs.
An avid Chicago sports fan, Schassburger grew up in the south Chicago suburbs and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Broadcasting from Western Illinois University in 2011. Schassburger did four years of play-by-play for WIU – covering football, basketball, baseball, and volleyball. Other titles held included were Sports/ Program Director for WIUS-FM, NPR reporter for WIUM-FM, and sports/news anchor/director/producer for WIU-TV3. He interned at both ESPN-1000 and Comcast Sportsnet in Chicago.
Before taking his talents to the Tar Heel State in August of 2012, Schassburger was an award-winning reporter and anchor for WGIL-AM 1400 in Galesburg, IL. His spot news coverage of President Obama’s surprise visit to Galesburg High School won “Best Cover News” by the Associated Press in August 11’ – an event that occurred less than three weeks to being on the job.
‘The Schass’ and his family currently reside in High Point. Outside of work, he enjoys long walks in the outfield, bicep curls, and chipping in for birdie. But above all else, it’s spending time with his two-year-old baby girl – ‘Pudge.’
