Sports Radio Changes Begin Today Across The Country

While the NFL’s Black Monday is spent focusing on those who are headed to the unemployment line, the sports radio format today celebrates a number of new additions. Many of these stories have been reported on this website over the past few weeks but since we recognize that the holiday’s are a time where you try to unwind and disconnect from the day to day grind, here’s what you need to know to get caught up on anything you might have missed.

Atlanta:

92.9 The Game begins a new venture into middays as a result of parting ways last week with Randy Cross. Rick Kamla continues to host the program but the station hasn’t yet announced if they will or won’t replace Cross’ spot.

Denver: 

104.3 The Fan turns its midday program over to Ryan Edwards and Shawn Drotar. Josh Dover and James Gomez take over the late night slot. Mike Evans continues to host morning drive with Joel Dreesen but without Vic Lombardi who has left the station. Mark Schlereth will officially join the show to complete the trio in late January.

iHeart launches into the sports space with Denver Sports 760. Dan Patrick and Colin Cowherd’s programs air on the new sports talker along with two local shows hosted by Andy Lindahl and Dave Logan and Susie Wargin.

Houston:

SportsTalk 790’s changes go into effect with Matt Thomas joining Lance Zierlein on the “Proper Gentlemen of Sports”. Adam Clanton shifts from mornings to middays where he teams with former NFL veteran Sean Jones from 12p-3p. Charlie Pallilo adds an hour to his afternoon program and now broadcasts from 3p-7p, while Greg Koch and N.D Kalu reduce their program by an hour and now air from 10a-12p.

Miami/South Florida:

640 Sports begins the post-Sid Rosenberg era. The station parted ways with the talented morning man last week due to needing to reduce expenses. Fox Sports Radio’s “Daybreak with Mike North and Andy Furman” settles into morning drive starting today.

Oklahoma City:

Dylan Buckingham takes over middays today on 107.7 The Franchise. His promotion comes as a result of Zach McCrite departing to return home to Louisville, Kentucky.

St. Louis:

CBS Sports 920 kicks off “The Writer’s Block” with Benjamin Hochman, Derrick Goold and Rob Frederickson today at 12pm. The station also has former hockey player and current St. Louis Blues Analyst Kelly Chase debuting his bi-weekly hockey show starting at 2pm.

590 The Fan KFNS begins its new morning show with Dave Rapp and Matt Berger at 6am. Former morning host JC Corcoran shifts to middays with the returning Bob Ramsey and Jeff Vernetti at 11am. Howard Balzer moves his program up to 1pm.

National:

NBC Sports Radio starts the New Year without Erik Kuselias in morning drive. Erik announced two weeks ago he was leaving the network. No permanent changes have been announced yet and the network website still says Kuselias is there but Jim Daniels and Scott Seidenberg were on the air anchoring morning today.

Yahoo Sports Radio kicks off their new weekday programming with Joe Spano in middays and Matt Perrault hosting evenings LIVE from Las Vegas. Perrault will have Dodgers Pitcher Clayton Kershaw appearing on his debut program.

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.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“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.
