Bangor-based sports talk show Downtown with Rich Kimball will be available to a much larger audience starting next month. The 4:00-6:00 p.m. show has been airing on WAEI, AM 910 since September, will be heard on three other Fox Sports Maine stations beginning June 25. WFAU (AM 1280) in Gardiner/Augusta, WRKD (AM 1450) in Rockland, and WIGY (97.5 FM) in Madison/Skowhegan. 

"We're very excited to have the chance to reach a larger audience," said host Rich Kimball. "It's great to become a part of these long-established stations and also give our adverstisers access to three additional markets." Kimball said the show will continue to focus on coverage of Boston sports teams and the University of Maine programs and will look to provide information about events in the communities served by the new stations. "We really try and cover arts and entertainment in the Bangor area and we'll do the same with the new regions we'll be reaching," Kimball explained.

Halftime is over

Call it a midlife crisis if you like, but the fact remains that to put my life in sports vernacular, most likely the first half and even halftime are both over. Second half action is underway. As I crossed the 40 yard line heading for the 50 at a rapid pace, I realized that even in Japan, which has the highest life expectancy on the planet at 82, I'm running smack dab into Heartbreak Hill in the marathon of life. As Coach Bill wisely says, 'It is what it is.' I'm happy, lucky and blessed. Great family. Good job. Pretty decent health albeit carrying a slightly larger waistline than I featured in the first quarter of this game called life. But generally speaking my wife shouldn't worry about me bringing a sports car home anytime soon.

As I wonder what will be different about the second half of life, I think sports may play a smaller role than it has so far. Like so many boys, much of my spare time growing up was consumed with playing sports. I have paid the rent by covering sports for many years of my adult life as a sports anchor and reporter at WLBZ TV and sports talk host on WZON radio.

And, perhaps like you, I've been a rabid and passionate fan. I consider myself lucky that in the first 40 years or so of my existence I have seen about all I need to see.
