Update III: It's all official now. The press release from CBS Radio this morning confirms 92.3 The Fan will launch on August 29 with a lineup like we already told you about: NFL games from Westwood One (in addition to Big 10 football), Kiley and Booms in the morning, and more.

In the release, new program director Andy Roth says, "What we are launching is literally a radio station for 'The Fan.' For Clevelanders who live and breathe sports 24/7 this will be the place to get the best insight, most in-depth coverage and a well-rounded balance of listener participation all presented in an entertaining forum."

What he didn't say but wanted to: "Good luck, WKNR, filling time on Sundays when everyone else is listening to the Browns or us. Maybe 11 straight hours of Chris Fedor's fantasy tips or Michael Reghi reading from his thesaurus will work. Ha."

Update II: We've heard, and it's been all but confirmed, that Kevin Kiley and Chuck Booms will pair up for the morning show on 92.3 The Fan. They had a show on Fox Sports, and have both worked in a variety of markets over the years. A name has been rumored for the afternoon, but we haven't confirmed anything yet. One hint: Bull.
