The show has been re-formatted around some of the articles featured in the magazine and Bluff writers and contributors will be appearing regularly to bring you the low-down on the gossip and happenings on the circuit. Whether you’re a pro or an amateur enthusiast, the Bluff Magazine Poker Hour’s ultimate aim is to offer something for everyone.”
“Sports Byline radio is heard on nearly 200 radio stations and by 2.2 million listeners per week,” added Eric Morris, Publisher and Co-founder of Bluff Magazine. “Poker has become a mainstream sport in recent years, and that’s why it needs a mainstream platform to reach all the fans out there.
