Let the raiding begin. CBS Radio Sports announced this morning (7/31) that ESPN sports talker Doug Gottlieb has signed a multi-year deal with CBS and will contribute across CBS Sports properties. Sean McManus, chairman of CBS Sports and CBS Radio President/CEO Dan Mason made the announcement. Gottlieb will host afternoons (3-6 p.m. ET) on the newly created 24/7 sports network and make his debut on January 2, 2013 the same day that CBS Sports Radio launches.
Mason said, “This is the first of many prominent personalities we will be adding to the CBS Sports Radio lineup. Doug is well-versed in today’s sports landscape and for years has entertained audiences with his unique blend of wit, honesty, and outspokenness — traits essential for creating great radio programming. We are thrilled to provide this exciting show to our new and soon-to-be announced affiliates across the country.”
