93.7 The Ticket in Lincoln, NE is making changes to its weekday programming lineup. Program Director John Gaskins, who has been with the radio station since it launched in 2011, and was hosting middays alongside Tom Stephens, is leaving to return home to Sioux Falls, SD where he’ll work for KWSN.

To fill Gaskins’ void, The Ticket will turn to Connor Happer. Happer, had been one half of “The Morning Take” with on-air partner Jake Sorensen. His new partnership with Stephens will result in the program being re-branded as “Happer and Stephens”. The show will air weekdays from 11a-2p CT.

With Happer moving to middays, “The Morning Take” will also undergo an adjustment. PD John Gaskins says an announcement about the morning show is forthcoming, but he wanted to allow each show to enjoy their own day in the sun.

ESPNU, SiriusXM End Partnership, Channel 84 Rebrands as SiriusXM College Sports Radio

“Beyond the name and branding, nothing else for the channel has changed.”

SiriusXM still has a college sports radio station on its platform. It’s just called something different now.

A report from Cord Cutters News confirmed that ESPNU and SiriusXM have ended their partnership. Channel 84, which used to be known as SiriusXM ESPNU Radio, is now known as SiriusXM College Sports Radio.

ESPNU had been with the satellite radio provider since 2017. The channel itself, which has been on the Sirius lineup since 2010, was called SiriusXM College Sports Nation when it first launched.

Beyond the name and branding, nothing else for the channel has changed. Listeners can still tune in to hear hosts like Danny Kanell, Dusty Dvoracek, Rick Neuheisel and EJ Manuel, as well as live college sports play-by-play broadcasts.

The move doesn’t end ESPN’s partnership with Sirius. Cord Cutters noted that College GameDay will still be fully simulcasted on channel 81, which is ESPN Xtra.

Kay Adams has been successfully forging her own path in media after leaving NFL Network, but there have been moments along the way that she hasn’t forgotten.

Appearing as a guest on Maggie & Perloff on Friday, Adams was asked if she has ever had any pinch-me moments in her career. She said that one of those came back in 2014 and 2015 when she got the chance to guest host The Dan Patrick Show.

“A career highlight was when I, no reason to be allowed to fill in for The Dan Patrick Show,” Adams said. “I somehow got to.”

Perloff, who had the nickname “McLovin” while working with Dan Patrick as a Dan-ette, said he remembered Adams hosting and thought she did a great job. But Adams advised the audience not to try and seek out those tapes.

“I had no idea what was going on,” Adams said. “It would be me and Chris Mannix. And he did his thing, and I was just happy to be along for the ride.”

Adams added that starting her own show with FanDuel has also been a kind of pinch-me moment. She said she was excited that FanDuel was enthusiastic about trying to create the best content possible.

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.”
