After parting ways with Jayson Braddock and Sean Jones, iHeartMedia Houston has found their replacement for afternoon drive. And they didn’t have to search far to find it.

SportsTalk 790 is adding former NFL Quarterback Sean Salisbury weekdays from 3p-6p CT. Salisbury exits Gow Media where he had hosted shows for ESPN Houston, SB Nation Radio and beIN Sports. He’s expected to make his debut on 790 on July 9th.

“We’re thrilled to be adding Salisbury to the team. The former QB brings a unique perspective from his days on the gridiron,” said Bryan Erickson, Director of AM Programming for iHeart Media Houston.

In addition to playing professional football for 10 years, Salisbury has worked as an NFL analyst on ESPN, appearing on Sports Center and NFL Live, and served as a consultant for the 2005 remake of The Longest Yard.

“I’ve been blessed with a full career and this opportunity to work with iHeart and Sportstalk 790 was too good to pass up in so many ways. I don’t take these great moments lightly,” said Salisbury. “The last 5 years have been special. I fully expect this new journey to be filled with WOW moments that make our listeners feel like they are getting the show they deserve!”

Salisbury joins a lineup featuring Josh Innes, Matt Thomas and former NFL players Greg Koch and N.D. Kalu. SportsTalk 790 will also continue its broadcast partnerships with the Houston Astros, Houston Rockets and the University of Texas football and basketball teams.

“We’ve put together an All Star lineup of guys who know sports and love talking about sports,” said Erickson. “Sportstalk 790 is truly the best destination for compelling local sports content in Houston.”

With Salisbury moving to 790, no word yet on how Gow Media will fill his void or what the status is of Robin Carlin, and Brian Barrett who have been part of Salisbury’s show.

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.
