Premiere Networks and Jay Mohr have mutually decided to end production and syndication of Jay Mohr Sports, effective immediately. The actor and comedian has been hosting shows for Fox Sports Radio since December 2012, and hosting afternoon shows on the network since October 2014.
In a press release Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks, stated, “When we partnered to launch Jay Mohr Sports, we aimed to create something truly different, a fusion of comedy, sports and entertainment-and it was very successful. We’re proud of what we accomplished together and wish Jay the best of luck as he focuses on the next chapter of his entertainment career.”
Mohr said on the decision to end the show, “I’ve always loved radio, and having a national platform to share my brand of sports talk and comedy was an incredible experience. I loved interacting with the fans, athletes and sports figures over the past three years, but it’s become difficult to juggle the commitment of a three-hour weekday radio show with a film and TV career, stand-up comedy shows, as well as time with my family. It was a tough decision to leave radio, but I appreciate all the support from the team at Fox Sports Radio and Premiere Networks, as well as the listeners and fans.”
Fox Sports Radio’s Dan Beyer and Jonas Knox will guest host in the 3pm-6pm ET weekday time slot until a permanent host is announced.
