AUDIO Frye: We're Going For Kyrie's Throat

Written by

Cavaliers forward Channing Frye joined the Sam and Brad Show from Cavs Media Day Monday to discuss the season, including the opener against the Boston Celtics.

Frye didn't mince words when talking about former Cavalier Kyrie Irving.

 

After sitting vacant for nearly a decade, and after numerous attempts at bringing some life to the venue, the Rubber Bowl will soon become rubble.

Mayor Dan Horrigan joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to discuss the present and future of the Rubber Bowl and the surrounding area. Safety and security are big issues, mainly with “trill seekers” breaking in to take photos of the decay. Once the structure meets the wrecking ball, Horrigan says this helps change the landscape of the area, and he looks forward to how the surrounding area will look afterward.

The Rubber Bowl opened its doors in 1940, hosting the Akron Zips football team for its entire run. Over the years, the venue was used as a neutral site for football teams and site for music festivals.

1590 WAKR Student Athlete of the Week: Victoria Young

Written by
This week's 1590 WAKR Female student athlete of the week is Victoria Young from Kenmore-Garfield High School.

A sophomore soccer player for the Golden Rams, Victoria just started playing soccer after a friend told her to give it a try. She is a defender on the team.

Young says the transition from Garfield has been a bit overwhelming, but she is adjusting to being in a combined high school of over 1200 students.

In her future, Victoria would maybe like to be a lawyer and have her practice somewhere in Northeast Ohio.

Best of luck, Victoria!
