Michael Holley, Michael Felger To Co-Host Boston Sports Tonight

“Despite their friendly relationship off-mic, the two hosts were radio competitors while Holley was with WEEI for more than a decade. Holley’s time with WEEI included a lengthy tenure in afternoon drive directly opposite Felger and Mazz.”

NBC Sports Boston announced Michael Felger will join Michael Holley to co-host the network’s weeknight sports show Boston Sports Tonight beginning Monday, April 5.

Holley joined the network as a co-host of Boston Sports Tonight in 2017, currently working with Tom Giles and DJ Bean on the show. Felger and Holley will host the one-hour show at 10pm Monday through Thursday, while Giles and Bean are moving to the Friday edition of Boston Sports Tonight alongside new hire Amina Smith.

Felger has been a contributor to NBC Sports Boston since 2007, but reduced his role with the network after signing his most recent radio contract in 2018. Additionally, his very successful afternoon radio show on 98.5 The Sports Hub with Tony Massarotti has been simulcast on the Boston RSN since 2011.

“Michael Felger is an incredible talent and personality that embodies the passion Boston sports fans have for their teams, so teaming him up with incomparable Michael Holley is something we are very excited about,” said Chris Wayland, President & General Manager of the NBCUniversal Boston Owned Properties & Regional Sports Networks. “This new duo will undoubtedly deliver an entertaining, insightful and engaging experience for Boston sports fans every night.”

Despite their friendly relationship off-mic, the two hosts were radio competitors while Holley was with WEEI for more than a decade. Holley’s time with WEEI included a lengthy tenure in afternoon drive directly opposite Felger and Mazz.

“Felger is a really hard worker and he’s also tough to copy because he’s authentic,” Holley told BSM in an interview last year. “Some people play a character, but he doesn’t. This is who he is and that’s why he’s so effective…Predictability wears out. Felger is original and when he goes against the grain, you might not agree, but he can back it up and show his work.”

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.
