Cumulus Nashville’s 104.5 The Zone Launches New Podcast, “The Install with Greg Cosell”

Sports Podcast Looks at NFL Film Through a Tennessee Titans Lens

NASHVILLE, TN, July 15, 2021 — 104.5 The Zone/WGFX-FM, CUMULUS MEDIA’s premier Sports Talk radio station serving Nashville and Middle Tennessee, announces that it has launched a new podcast, “The Install with Greg Cosell”, hosted by veteran NFL analyst Greg Cosell, Senior Producer for NFL Films and Executive Producer of NFL Matchup. The podcast is co-hosted by 104.5 The Zone’s Midday Host Buck Reising, and is the newest addition to the 104.5 The Zone Podcast Network. “The Install with Greg Cosell” brings a different approach and sound to how Cosell covers film, as Cosell and Reising go through NFL film that Cosell has watched, through a Tennessee Titans lens. They will also cover the rest of the NFL.


The debut episode of “The Install with Greg Cosell” features the AFC South and is available now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, Audioboom and other podcast services. New episodes are available every Wednesday at 6:00PM Central.


Cosell is a native of Queens, NY, and a graduate of Amherst College. A nephew of the legendary sportscaster Howard Cosell, he co-authored the book The Games That Changed the Game: The Evolution of the NFL in Seven Sundays. Cosell is a contributor to shows including SiriusXM’s Fantasy Football Morning with John Hansen and Adam Caplan and MSG Western New York’s midday show One Bills Live, as well as The Herd with Colin Cowherd on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1.


Greg Cosell commented: “I am very excited to join Buck Reising on a new podcast venture called The Install with Greg Cosell. We will focus on the X and Os of Titans football, plus take detailed looks at the AFC South and the rest of the NFL.”


Buck Reising noted: “I could not be more excited for this project. To work with one of the foremost minds in football analysis will be a dream for me and a product I know our audience will enjoy.”


Paul Mason, Program Director, 104.5 The Zone/WGFX-FM, remarked: “I am thrilled that Greg Cosell is partnering with Buck Reising to host The Install with Greg Cosell as the latest piece to the expanding 104.5 The Zone Network. The Install along with Cosell’s weekly appearance on the Zone with 3HL will allow him to take Titans fans to even more places.”
