Jay Mohr is going to try the radio thing on a daily basis. Hopefully, somebody told him it is a little tougher than being an occasional guest host.

From Fox Sports:

FOX Sports Radio is pleased to announce the addition of actor, comedian and radio personality Jay Mohr as its new midday host.  Airing live on weekdays from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m. ET/9 a.m. – 12 p.m. PT, Jay Mohr Sports will feature sports talk and entertainment highlighted by Mohr’s trademark comedic style and unique perspective as a multi-media star, in addition to conversations with top athletes and celebrities.  Originating from FOX Sports Radio’s Los Angeles studios, Jay Mohr Sports will debut on radio stations nationwide Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

“After spending the last 15 years guest hosting, I couldn’t be happier to get the opportunity to host my own show!” said Mohr.  “I’m looking forward to talking sports, connecting with listeners, and interviewing amazing guests every day, while being a part of the FOX Sports Radio family.  It was worth the wait.”

“Jay has done a great job guest hosting for Premiere Sports and FOX Sports Radio’s flagship station AM570 FOX Sports LA, and I know his sense of humor and extensive sports knowledge will provide just what our listeners are looking for,” stated Carl Anderson, Executive Vice President of News, Talk and Sports Programming for Premiere Networks.  “He’s a perfect addition to our leading, multi-platform, sports entertainment lineup.”
