Starting Monday, Bartsool Radio will roll out a drastically new weekday lineup less than one year after the station launched on SiriusXM.

The schedule change helps fill the void left by Pat McAfee who infamously departed the channel late this past summer.  McAfee’s show aired from 10 – noon ET which has recently been replaced by a rerun of Barstool Breakfast.

From 7 – 10am ET programming will remain unchanged, featuring Barstool Breakfast followed by The Cousins.  Barstool Breakfast will still be hosted by Willie Colon and Francis Ellis.  Shaun Latham, also known as 20 Dollar Chef will get his own one-hour show each day at 10am joined by Ben Friedman and Jourdyn Berry.

PFT Commenter will host Big If True with Trill Withers, Jeff Lowe, KenJac and Liz Gonzales who leaves the Barstool Radio afternoon show.  PFT will host the show daily, with the others serving as a rotating supportive cast.

The Evening Yak with Big Cat moves to lunchtime, airing from noon – 1pm.  KFC is moved off Barstool Radio, to host a show stacked with personality alongside Jared Carrabis and Kayce Smith from 1 – 3pm.  Chicks in the Office changes from a 1pm start time to 3pm and Barstool Radio remains from 4 – 6pm.

With KFC no longer on the 4pm show, Portnoy and Tommy Smokes will be joined by Sam Riggs Bozoian on Barstool Radio from 4 – 6pm.  Hi Haters hosted by two former Marines, Kate and Chaps will round out the new lineup from 6 -7pm, instead of their late night 10pm spot.

The most notable host missing from the new lineup is Dallas Braden, the former MLB pitcher previously hosted Dialed – In from 2 – 4pm ET.  During the announcement, Portnoy also added he will be rotating around the schedule, regularly joining multiple shows.  Barstool Radio can be heard on SiriusXM channel 85, where it debuted January 17 of this year.

Andrew Fillipponi: Peter Burns Made ‘Innocuous Joke’ To Ben Watson

The on-air spat between SEC Network host Peter Burns and analyst Ben Watson continues to be bandied about in sports media circles, with 93.7 The Fan hosts Andrew Fillipponi and Chris Mueller discussing the topic Tuesday.

“I’m on Team Burns,” Fillipponi said.

“Forget who’s team you’re on,” Chris Mueller said. “I think you’ve do have to keep the wives and children out of this.”

“What are you talking about, keep the wives and out of it?!,” Fillipponi asked.

“Do we believe this is work or shoot here?,” Mueller wondered.

“Oh, I think this is real,” Fillpponi added, which Mueller agreed.

“Do you think a close fist from Ben Watson hit Peter Burns?,” Mueller asked.

“No, I think he picked him up by the lapels,” Fillipponi said.

When the subject of Watson’s religion was brought up, Fillipponi then pointed out the absurdity of the situation.

“So wait a minute? Because you believe in Jesus Christ you care about your wife more than other people? What are you talking about?”

“I think he might have a shorter fuse and not taking in humor that Peter Burns was giving out,” Mueller said.

“It was an innocuous joke!,” Fillipponi stated. “It wasn’t a joke! Why is it in bad taste?”

Mueller then added the idea of Watson’s wife texting Burns insinuates there’s an inappropriate relationship.

Craig Carton: Booger McFarland’s Zach Wilson Analysis ‘An Embarrasment’

Craig Carton

ESPN NFL analyst Booger McFarland raised eyebrows on Monday Night Countdown this week by saying New York Jets quarterback Zach Wilson has never been held accountable for his actions because he was a “young man who grew up with a lot of money”. WFAN afternoon host Craig Carton called out McFarland’s comments Tuesday as outlandish.

“It was an embarrasment,” Carton said. “Someone should ask Booger McFarland if his kids — who grew up with amazing wealth — have accountability in their lives or if having a little bit of money in your pocket immediately discounts the possibility to have accountability. He’s an idiot and we learned that last night.”

“It’s funny that Steve Young was on the other side of it,” Evan Roberts noted. “Because a long time ago, Steve Young criticized Chris Simms because he’s the son of a famous quarterback.”

“You don’t have to invent reasons for why Zach Wilson isn’t playing well,” added Carton. “Just watch his tape. He’s not playing well. Maybe he’s just not good!”

Carton later said NFL reporters “will try to make a name for themselves by putting out a story” about quarterbacks who take responsibility for their teams failures, while Wilson wouldn’t accept the blame.

“Be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”

Peter Burns and Ben Watson shared an awkward exchange during the halftime show of an SEC Network football game over the weekend, and many are still debating whether Watson walking off the set was serious or not. Count part of the cast of The Greg Hill Show on WEEI as doubters.

“That was a a bit,” Courtney Cox said. “That was absolutely a bit.”

“Yeah, unlike the Chris Rock/Will Smith thing, I assume that was a bit,” Hill said. “I can’t believe that Ben Watson is really angry about that.”

“I dunno, man. There’s been a lot of speculation that it isn’t,” Jermaine Wiggins added. “There are people who are very sensitive about you clowning on them or joking with them. Especially with joking about their wife. Some people can’t handle jokes like that.”

After a back-and-forth with Cox about the legitimacy of the joke, Wiggins concluded by saying for some folks family is off limits.

“I’ve learned something in my 47 years on this Earth: be careful when you’re talking about somebody’s wife and their kids. ‘Cause not everybody jokes the same way.”
