Fox Sports Radio is injecting new life into their weekend lineup. Joy Taylor is headlining a show on Saturdays, and the network is adding Covino and Rich to their airwaves as well.

Covino & Rich will air from 8p-11p ET every Sunday starting this weekend. Hosted by Steve Covino & Rich Davis, the show debuted in 2004 on what was then Sirius’ Maxim Radio. The duo discusses lifestyle, relationships, comedy, sports, and music. They had a 16-year run on SiriusXM before moving their content to Patreon in March 2021. The duo also appeared a few years ago on ESPN Radio’s weekend schedule.

“We’re thrilled to add Joy [Taylor] and Covino & Rich to what’s already the best live weekend sports roster in the game,” FOX Sports Radio vice president of sports programming Scott Shapiro said in a press release. “No matter what happens on the football field or beyond, FOX Sports Radio features instant reaction 24/7 with the most engaging and credible hosts in the space.”  

Other additions to the weekend lineup include a simulcast of FOX Sports’ Big Noon Kickoff airing 10a-12p ET. The program features college football icons Brady Quinn, Reggie Bush, Matt Leinart, and Bob Stoops, along with host Rob Stone. 

The Saturday fun doesn’t stop there; Up On Game with LaVar Arrington, TJ Houshmandzadeh, and Plaxico Burress is back for its first full football season in a new timeslot. Their program airs from 12p-2p ET, leading right into Taylor’s new show from 2p-4p ET.

Sunday’s are all football all the time during the NFL season. Simulcasts of FOX NFL Sunday and FOX NFL Kickoff are back in 2021. Kickoff features voices like Michael Vick, Dave Wannstedt, Charles Woodson, and Peter Schrager chopping up all the NFL storylines from 11a-12p ET. 

The usual voices return for NFL Sunday, as hosts Terry Bradshaw and Curt Menefee prep fans with analysis from Howie Long, Jimmy Johnson, and Michael Strahan.
