CBS Sports Radio Shuffles Line-up in Wake of Doug Gottlieb's Departure

CBS Sports Radio's "Tiki and Tierney" and "The DA Show" will move to new weekday timeslots, effective Monday, April 17, as part of new multi-year deals with their respective hosts, Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney (pictured) and Damon Amendolara.

Additionally, "Tiki and Tierney" will be simulcast live on CBS Sports Network, a first for the program. "Tiki and Tierney" joins a lineup of programming on CBS Sports Network which also includes the simulcast of "Boomer & Carton" every weekday morning.

"Tiki and Tierney" will move from weekday mornings, 9am-12pm, to afternoon drive, 3-6pm, replacing "The Doug Gottlieb Show" which will have its final broadcast on Friday, April 14. "The DA Show" will move from its current timeslot of weekday evenings, 6-10pm, to mornings, 9am-12pm. A new evening show and host will be named soon.

"We're thrilled that our listeners will be able to enjoy Tiki, Brandon and DA for years to come," said CBS Sports Radio Director of Programming Eric Spitz. "Airing in new dayparts, these already popular shows will be introduced to scores of new listeners while undoubtedly continuing to serve their current audiences. The addition of a live simulcast of 'Tiki and Tierney' solidifies their popularity and relevance in today's competitive sports arena."

 He added, "Doug Gottlieb has been a trusted and sought-after voice on CBS Sports Radio since our 2013 launch and we wish him nothing but the very best in all his future pursuits."

Doug Gottlieb is expected to sign on with FS1 cable network and Fox Sports Radio, where he will most likely follow The Herd with Colin Cowherd at 3pm ET. FS1 also features The Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe.

Very noticeable during this past weekend's March Madness NCAA Basketball Championships was the low visibility of Doug Gottlieb on CBS TV, Tru TV and TBS. Gottlieb, who knows a thing of two about the game, was a point guard for Notre Dame and Oklahoma State, set a school record for assists in a game for OSU, and participated as a player in the tournament.

Gottlieb may have interest in becoming the head basketball coach at Oklahoma State in the near future.

Gayle King and Charles Barkley are finalizing a deal that would have them jointly lead a primetime hour each week on CNN, according to people familiar with the matter and multiple news sources. The pact is not complete and there is always the risk it may not come to fruition, one of these people says. CNN declined to make executives available for comment.

Tavis Smiley owned Los Angeles talk station KBLA Talk 1580 donated $20,000 in scholarship money to the NABJLA and MPJI.

KBLA ‘Talk 1580’ strongly believes in enlightening, empowering and encouraging tomorrow’s reporters, editors and potential talk radio hosts. Hopefully, our scholarships make a difference.”

• WLBT anchor and meteorologist Barbie Bassett is no longer with the Jackson, Miss., NBC station after racially insensitive comments. In early March, Bassett was speaking with her fellow anchors on air about Snoop Dogg’s latest business venture, Snoop Cali Blanc, a new wine in his wine label. In response to a comment about putting a Snoop Dogg tattoo on her shoulder, Bassett said, “Fo shizzle, my nizzle.” Bassett is white. Charlamagne tha God defended Bassett as he discussed the situation on The Breakfast Club. “She might be old. She probably has no idea nizzle is a derivative of the N-word. That’s not a fireable offense. I hope she sues.”
