Every weekday from 10am-2pm Greg Papa and John Lund delight the Bay Area with their unique combination of loose and informative sports talk. Papa & Lund established a rapport and ratings juggernaut by working together for five years previously, before joining KNBR on a multi-year agreement.
Upon joining the 49ers earlier this year, Papa became the first Bay Area broadcaster to have a role with five of the region’s major professional teams. He previously served as the voice of the Warriors (TV & radio – 1986-97), Giants (TV & radio – 2004-08), Oakland A’s (TV – 1990-2003) and Oakland Raiders (radio – 1997-2017). Papa currently hosts NBC Sports Bay Area’s San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors Pregame Live and Postgame Live shows.
KNBR Program Director Jeremiah Crowe said: “Greg brings unrivaled knowledge and top-notch entertainment value to every broadcast he leads. His connection with the Bay Area sports fan runs deep on many levels through his history in the local market, and we are proud to reunite him with John Lund in mid-days on The Sports Leader.”
With two decades of experience in the radio industry, Lund has had nearly every job you can in radio from Program Director to on-air host. He began his career running the ESPN radio station in Pittsburgh, and bounced around to Dallas, Utah, and Portland before settling in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lund previously hosted KNBR’s 3-7 PM drive-time show with Tom Tolbert.
“I am thrilled to be returning to the powerful airwaves of The Sports Leader,” said Papa. “Being reunited with John Lund on the flagship station of the 49ers is the perfect combination.”
