Beginning Tuesday, July 16, 2019, Papa & Lund with Greg Papa and John Lund will broadcast Monday through Friday from 10am–2pm PT, marking the return of Greg Papa to the KNBR airwaves via a multi-year agreement.
Papa previously hosted his own show on KNBR 1050 from 2001-2003. Papa will host the weekday 10am-2pm time slot alongside John Lund, whom he worked with for five years previously. 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.”
“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.”
