Continuing to build their weekend lineup, ESPN Radio recently debuted their new host pairing for GameDay, which airs every Sunday from 1 – 5pm ET during football season. 

It shouldn’t take long for the new hosts Jordan and Shae Peppler Cornette to find their chemistry, considering they’re partners on-air and off. The couple has been married now for over a year. They met in Chicago, while working for Stadium, also contributing to Kap & Company on ESPN 1000. 

“Shae has made such a great partner in life, a similar result in radio is only logical,” Jordan said in the press announcement. “Sports permeate our house on a typical Sunday, why not bring those sports debates, spousal debates, etc. to the airwaves. I look forward to having an audience mediate our marital disagreements along the way.”

Jordan moved to the East Coast in 2019, joining ESPN’s ACC Network where he hosts The Huddle and contributes as a basketball analyst. For seven months, the newly married couple lived in different parts of the country with Shae staying in Chicago as a sports anchor for FOX 32. But earlier this year, she relocated to the East Coast for a job with SiriusXM’s NFL Radio, and the couple was back under one roof just before the COVID-19 caused shutdown.

“They say marriage is work, well one year in, and it LITERALLY is,” Shae added in the press release. “If I had to pick my ideal co-host, it would be someone who can highlight my strengths and challenge me to see things from another perspective all while making me laugh. There is no one that does that better than my husband. The two of us have passionate opinions on who is winning the NBA title to who is watching ahead on our Netflix series; it’s real life, just with a microphone and a producer. And I am thrilled to bring this unique but relatable set-up to the ESPN airwaves.”

Pairing a husband and wife for a sports show is unique, but not completely without precedent. RADIO.COM Sports offers a two-hour weekday podcast, Swings & Mrs. hosted by married couple Cody Decker and Jennifer Sterger.

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.”

“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.
