Fox Sports Radio Announces New Weeknight Shows

Fox Sports Radio has added two new evening shows to replace Steve Gorman Sports and JT the Brick. Both of those shows parted ways with the network last week.

The first new show is Straight Outta Vegas hosted by RJ Bell. The hour long show will air every weeknight starting at 6pm Eastern. The show has spent the past year as a twice-weekly program offered as part of FSR’s weekend lineup.

Bell is the founder and CEO of Pregame.com. His show is the first nationally syndicated sports gambling-focused show offered to terrestrial radio. The move to weeknights puts Straight Outta Vegas in a “pregame” sort of slot for all East Coast games. FSR’s Jonas Knox will be pert of the cast, as will betting experts Brad Powers and Steve Fezzik.

Another weekend show is also moving into Fox Sports Radio’s 7pm ET timeslot. The Odd Couple featuring Chris Broussard and Rob Parker debuted as a Sunday show back in March. It will move to weeknights starting on September 17. Parker and Broussard have been seen on a number of Fox Sports 1 programs since joining the company.

“This historic new lineup further solidifies FOX Sports Radio’s standing as the preeminent sports network in the nation,” said Don Martin, SVP Sports Programming for Premiere Networks, and Scott Shapiro, VP of Sports Programming for Premiere Networks, in a joint statement. “It’s now crystal clear that when you’re looking for the best, live sports-talk, this is the place to tune in. Listeners who want to be entertained, informed, and emotionally invested with the most-compelling personalities and storytellers in the industry will be rewarded with every listening occasion.”

The new lineup includes an additional hour for Jason Smith and Mike Harmon. Their show now begins at 10pm ET. The new weekday lineup for Fox Sports Radio is as follows:

6am-9am   Outkick The Coverage with Clay Travis

9am-12pm  The Dan Patrick Show

12pm-3pm  The Herd with Colin Cowherd

12pm-3pm  The Rich Eisen Show

3pm-6pm    The Doug Gottlieb Show

6pm-7pm    Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell

7pm-10pm  The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker

10pm-2am  The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon

2am-6am     The Ben Maller Show

Tony Rizzo Tired of Everyone Thinking ‘The Really Big Show’ Is ‘The Aaron Goldhammer Show’

“Well, Chuck, you and Aaron Goldhammer are gonna have a good old time. I am done.”

The Really Big Show on ESPN Cleveland is a staple in the market, with the pairing of Tony Rizzo and Aaron Goldhammer winning the top spot in BSM’s Top 20 in 2021 as the best mid-market sports radio midday show. Rizzo, however, was not happy with a recent comment from Charles Barkley about the show.

During Inside The NBA earlier this week, Barkley said “My boy Aaron Goldhammer had me on his show on ESPN Cleveland”, and that did not sit well with the veteran host.

“I’m done at the end of this year on the Really Big Show. All over,” Rizzo joked. “I worked my whole life at doing this and everyone thinks it’s The Aaron Goldhammer Show. I’m done, I’m really done. I’m serious, I am done. Good luck with your new show. I hope you can sell jewelry and windows, I hope you can do it. I’ll be rooting for you.”

“Thanks. Sounds like you’ll be rooting for me,” Goldhammer replied sarcastically.

“I have other things that I’ll be doing, but I am done,” continued Rizzo. “I ain’t worked 35 years for this guy to hijack every interview I’ve done. Sick of it.”

“My first show I’m gonna come on and say ‘You know, I was talking to my boy, Tony Rizzo, he used to guest host the show.”

“Well, Chuck, you and Aaron Goldhammer are gonna have a good old time. I am done,” Rizzo concluded.

Tyler Polumbus: ‘I Couldn’t Talk About Colorado Football On Denver Radio Before Deion Sanders’

“You are now a cultural icon for kids all across the country.”

Over the weekend Deion Sanders was formally announced as the new head football coach at Colorado University after three seasons at FCS Jackson State.

The hall of fame defensive back transformed Jackson State in his short stint at the HBCU, and the hope is that Sanders will be able to make football in Boulder relevant again.

Talking to Pete Medhurst and Chris Russell on The Team 980 in D.C. on Wednesday, Altitude Sports Radio host Tyler Polumbus explained how Deion’s hiring alone has already started to make an impact on the Buffaloes program.

“In 48 hours, Colorado’s social media accounts grew by 150,000 people,” Polumbus said. “And that’s the Deion Sanders effect. You are now a cultural icon for kids all across the country.”

Polumbus, a Denver native who played football at Colorado and recently joined Altitude Sports Radio after a stint at rival 104.3 The Fan, said the hiring has even made the school’s program a relevant topic on the radio.

“I couldn’t talk about CU on my radio show. CU is never talked about,” he said. “And Colorado is a one-sport (state). It is the Denver Broncos – that’s it. And from here on out until Deion Sanders is no longer the head coach at CU, they will be the top story here in Colorado.”

Medhurst mentioned how USC and UCLA exiting the Pac-12 for the Big Ten starting in 2024 could open the door for Colorado under Deion’s leadership to make some noise in the conference. But despite all the excitement from the Sanders hiring and not having seen what he can do with the team on the field, Polumbus said he’s trying to keep things in perspective.

“We already got catfished once this offseason with Russell Wilson,” he said of the Broncos quarterback. “So we’re trying to not let our hopes and enthusiasm get all too high with Deion Sanders, because I can’t let myself get catfished twice in one year.”

Colin Cowherd: Baker Mayfield Isn’t That Interesting To Me Anymore

“Carolina’s weak, and he has proven to be over-drafted. The Rams right now are boring, I don’t think with a bad o-line and limited weapons he’ll find it any easier than he did in Carolina.”

Former Cleveland Browns top draft pick Baker Mayfield’s stint with the Carolina Panthers ended after this past week, with the team placing him on waivers. On Tuesday, news broke that the L.A. Rams claimed Mayfield.

On FOX Sports Radio, host Colin Cowherd said Wednesday he didn’t have a hot take on the news.

“For a couple of years, three years or so, I talked about Baker Mayfield I swear to God every other day during the football season,” Cowherd said. He was considered one of Mayfield’s most vocal critics even going back to his playing days at Oklahoma.

“But I said when he left Cleveland I wouldn’t talk about him as much, because he’s just not that interesting,” he added. “Carolina’s weak, and he has proven to be over-drafted. The Rams right now are boring, I don’t think with a bad o-line and limited weapons he’ll find it any easier than he did in Carolina.”

Despite the fall from grace for Mayfield, Colin Cowherd said he hoped for the best for Baker moving forward.

“I honestly wish him well. I don’t root against professional athletes. Russell Westbrook can drive me crazy. Baker Mayfield drove me crazy, but he’s a nice kid.”
