Fred Roggin, The Dean of L.A. Sports, is moving to a new time beginning this Monday, October 19 on The Beast 980.  “The Fred Roggin Show” will now air weekdays 3 – 6 pm on L.A.’s only sports radio station focusing on Los Angeles sports news and teams.

Roggin, an award-winning sports anchor for NBC4 since 1985, has been entertaining local sports fans on The Beast 980 during middays since the station launched last year. Regarded by many as the leading sports anchor in Southern California, he has earned 30 local Emmys, 22 Golden Mikes, three Associated Press awards and numerous Press Club awards for his sports segments, specials and series. Roggin also received a Lifetime Achievement award from the L.A. Press Club in 2013.

“After eating lunch and spending the day at work with our listeners, we thought it would be fun to drive home with them,” said Roggin. “For the record, we fit into all cars.”

“The new time slot allows Fred to reach a wider local sports audience with more people in their cars for the afternoon commute,” said Beast 980 program director Tom Lee. “With the addition of “Plaschke & Zelasko” L.A. sports fans will now be able to spend both their morning and afternoon commutes with iconic Los Angeles sports insiders.”

Earlier this month, Los Angeles Times columnist Bill Plaschke joined The Beast 980 to team up with veteran sports personality Jeanne Zelasko for an all-new morning show, “Plaschke and Zelasko,” from 6 – 9am. The weekday lineup also includes Jim Rome from 9am – 12pm.

The Beast 980 is the play-by-play home for the Los Angeles Clippers and the LA Galaxy, and carries a full slate of NFL action, NCAA football and NCAA basketball.  The station streams live at www.TheBeast980.com and on The Beast 980 App.  Both the Clipper and Galaxy games can also be heard online and on the Beast 980 app, available for free download from the iTunes Store and Google Play.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
