95.7 was kind enough to send me this news release about 49ers coverage which seems promising. Any station that has Maiocco and Jeff Garcia has something to offer. I do not believe any 49ers player or Baalke will say anything very interesting because of how the team keeps things so private. I hope I’m wrong. I noticed in the release it says Harbaugh will appear on the station on a rotating basis. Does that mean he will be rotating as he speaks?
Here is the press release. I did not link to it, because it contains certain private phone numbers. I excerpted the relevant parts.
