For now, Mr. Kornblut is still being carried, as a local show, on Columbia affiliate WQXL (The Point). https://www.thestate.com/sports/article225235105.html https://www.postandcourier.com/sports/phil-kornblut-s-sportstalk-show-finds-new-home-after-network/article_d2485e02-23f3-11e9-8b53-ef5f8bfb5347.html Effective today, SportsTalk Radio Network and SportsTalkSC are no more.
