Former MLB.TV sports reporter and blogger Trenni Kusnierek is joining WTMJ 620, alongside Greg Matzek, the morning sports reporter on "Wisconsin's Morning News."

The two will co-host the nightly "Sports Central" sports talk show in place of Bill Michaels, who was let go from the station after management said it could not come to a new agreement with the long-time host.

In her new role, Kusnierek will provide sports reports during "Wisconsin's Afternoon News." Kusnierek and Matzek debut as the new hosts of "Sports Central" on Monday.

"I couldn't be more thrilled about my new opportunity with Newsradio 620 WTMJ. As a person who grew up in the Milwaukee area listening to WTMJ, it's a privilege for me to follow in the footsteps of so many talented sports announcers," Matzek said.

"I'm looking most forward to engaging with WTMJ listeners on a more frequent basis, both on the air and in person. I can't wait to get started."
