The summer book numbers are in for the nation’s capital, and has been the case most times, 106.7 The Fan turned in a solid quarterly performance. For the quarter, Washington D.C.’s sports radio leader finished 7th with a 5.0 share with Men 25-54. That was slightly down year over year from 6th and a 5.3 share. All numbers included in this article represent the station’s combined Over The Air ratings and Streaming performance.

Looking at the weekday shows, the Sports Junkies recorded the highest ranking on the station for the book. The Junkies were 5th in morning drive with a 5.3 share. The popular morning team also improved their year over year performance, gaining eight tenths of a point and three positions from 2020.

Turning to middays, Brian Mitchell and JP Finlay delivered a station best share of 5.8 for the quarter. That placed them 7th for the book between the hours of 10a-2p. Middays in 2020 were occupied by Grant and Danny (they’ve since moved to afternoons) and rated and ranked higher with a 6.4 and 4th place finish. With this being BMitch and Finlay’s first summer book, they now have something to measure themselves against next year.

Wrapping up in afternoons, Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier finished the quarter in 10th with a 4.4 share. It was their first summer book in PM drive so comparisons to last year aren’t an apples to apples comparison. Nonetheless, the station in 2020 produced a 4.8 and 6th place finish courtesy of Chad Dukes.

Team 980 is still a work in progress, so we’ll have to wait until the Fall to see where that brand starts to settle in. With the Washington Football Team back on the field, not to mention connected to an NFL investigation, and the Capitals and Wizards recently starting their 2021-2022 campaigns, look for D.C.’s numbers to grow in the fall.

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.
