This could be bad news for me. I love listening to John Feinstein on Mad Dog Radio via SiriusXM.
Will I be able hear him in Chicago on the new CBS Sports Radio Network? I don’t see Chicago listed among the affliliates. Hopefully soon.
Feinstein is a good catch for CBS, as he joins a lineup that includes Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb and Scott Ferrall.
CBS Sports Radio today announced it has named John Feinstein as one of the hosts of the network’s weekday programming. Broadcast live from 9:00AM-12:00PM, ET, “The John Feinstein Show” will feature commentary on the world of sports from the man who has covered most of the major–and many of the not-so-major–events in the world of sports during his more than 30 years as a sportswriter. The show will be heard on over 50 stations nation-wide, including many in major markets. In addition to his role as host, Feinstein will continue to contribute his personalized musings on the world of sports to the hourly “CBS Sports Minute” feature heard on CBS Sports Radio stations.
CBS Sports Radio will make its 24/7 debut on Wednesday, January 2, 2013. It was previously announced that The Jim Rome Show will be broadcast weekdays from 12:00Noon-3:00PM ET, Doug Gottlieb will serve as host of afternoons 3:00-6:00PM, while Scott Ferrall will lead the evening’s “Ferrall on the Bench” from 10:00PM-2:00AM on CBS Sports Radio.
“John is known for his encyclopedic knowledge of and passion for all aspects of sports,” said Eric Spitz, Director of Programming, CBS Sports Radio. “As a best-selling sports author and journalist, he has relationships with, and an open line to, some of the most fascinating names in sports.
