Brett Favre To Join SiriusXM NFL Radio

Legendary NFL quarterback Brett Favre, who will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this August, will be a host this upcoming season on SiriusXM NFL Radio, SiriusXM’s exclusive 24/7 NFL channel. It will be the first regular sports media role for the three-time NFL MVP since he retired after the 2010 season.

Favre will host a series of hour-long broadcasts during the season that will showcase the traits that made him a fan-favorite – his passion for the game on the field and his easy-going personality off it – and will give SiriusXM listeners an opportunity to interact with one of the game’s all-time greats. He will make his debut on SiriusXM NFL Radio on August 5 (6:00 pm ET) with a special “Town Hall” style show live from Canton, Ohio, where he and other members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Class of 2016 will be enshrined the next day.

After the Hall of Fame show, Favre will host the show live on a regular basis starting in September. He and co-host Bruce Murray will discuss the headline news happening around the NFL, analyze the league’s teams and players, and share his experiences from his career and his life since retiring. Listeners nationwide will have the opportunity to call in to the show and talk with a player who rewrote the game’s record book over his extraordinary 20-year professional career.

“I am looking forward to working with SiriusXM NFL Radio this season,” said Favre. “I’ve been a listener, both when I played and after I retired, and it’s a great place to talk about the game. I’m excited to talk with fans and weigh in with my opinions on what’s happening in the league, and it’ll be fun talking to some former colleagues now and then.”

“Brett was a once-in-a-generation player.  His career, and particularly the enthusiasm with which he played the game, enthralled all football fans,” said Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming. “His passion and free-spirited personality are perfect for radio. We are thrilled to have him make his debut on SiriusXM NFL Radio and we’re excited to give our listeners access to the insight and expertise of one of the greatest players to ever play the game. His debut show in Canton, and every show after, will be must-listen radio.”

The United States has been eliminated from the 2022 World Cup, and FOX Sports Radio host Doug Gottlieb believes that will return the sport back to its usual place inside the sports media landscape.

“I’m sure people in the soccer world are still talking about the World Cup,” Gottlieb said on his In The Bonus podcast Monday. “But zero people I know in real life are talking about the World Cup today.

“You can tell me how big soccer is in the world — and I’m not gonna dispute it — and you can tell me we’re doing better in the world than we’ve ever done — and I’m not gonna dispute it, it’s fine — but the fact is that as soon as that match was over we went from a couple of hours of soccer guy, or writer guy who’s really a soccer guy at heart, talking about should we change coaches, tactics, players, or whatever, and then it’s over. I don’t know who won and I don’t care.”

Gottlieb later added that soccer has been “the sport of the future” for his entire life, but added that college basketball is going on right now, and it isn’t on the national sports radar, either.

94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks has revealed he is working without a contract.

A report from CrossingBroad.com claims Marks mentioned the development on the air two weeks ago, and Marks confirmed the news when the outlet asked him for comment.

He did not, however, wish to say much more about the situation. WIP is currently in the midst of changes to its lineup due to the upcoming departure of legendary morning host Angelo Cataldi.

In late October, the station announced the current midday show of Joe DeCamara and Jon Ritchie would replace Cataldi in the mornings. Longtime morning co-host Al Morganti will remain with the station but will no longer be heard in mornings once DeCamara and Ritchie take over. Anchor Rhea Hughes will stay in the morning timeslot.

The station has yet to name a new midday show to replace DeCamara and Ritchie. Marks is currently teamed with former NFL linebacker Ike Reese from 2:00-6:00 PM. The two were paired together in 2017.

Monday Night Football got off to an energetic start last night, with the usually reserved Joe Buck showcasing an exuberant attitude while discussing the weather and the fact that the calendar has already flipped to December. WFAN morning host Boomer Esiason wondered if there was an ulterior motive to Buck’s raucous start.

In addition to the energy exuded by the Monday Night Football announcer, Buck nearly howeld in excitement as the network showcased Tom Brady’s usual scream of “Let’s F—ing Go!”, by shouting “Yeah! Let’s go! I can’t say one of those words!”

The excitement was noticed by Boomer & Gio update anchor Jerry Recco who played the audio for the show, with Boomer Esiason wondering if Buck was proving a point to someone.

“Maybe somebody told him he was too downcast the previous broadcast,” Esiason wondered. “Maybe he was doing that emphatically because somebody criticized him as flat or something.”
