NBC SPORTS RADIO is revamping its weekday lineup with the move of "PROFOOTBALLTALK LIVE WITH MIKE FLORIO" to mornings and weekender CHRIS MANNIX moving to weekday afternoons.
The new lineup, starting FEBRUARY 8th, will see FLORIO's show, replacing the departed ERIK KUSELIAS, move to 6-9a (ET), the last hour simulcast on TV via NBCSN through the NFL Draft, and then repeated 9a-noon for West Coast morning drive. The replay bumps NEWY SCRUGGS' "VOICES OF THE GAME" to noon-3p (ET), FLORIO's old slot; MANNIX takes 3-7p (ET), moving "UNDER CENTER WITH MARK MALONE" to 7-10p. "GOING DEEP" with AMANI TOOMER and DAN SCHWARTZMAN sticks around for 10p-1a (replayed 3-6a), SCOTT SEIDENBERG joins for 1-3a replacing "UP LATE WITH JASON PAGE," and former 7-10p host JON STASHOWER becomes morning show lead update anchor.
“We are excited to announce our new NBC SPORTS RADIO lineup,” said ROB SIMMELKJAER, SVP, NBC SPORTS VENTURES. “Kicking off with an NFL focus every morning followed by shows that touch on the day’s biggest stories, we are looking forward to delivering smart sports talk around the clock.”
“I couldn’t be prouder of our network’s evolution and our role as a benchmark for sports talk radio,” said PD JACK SILVER. “This new lineup leverages our best assets and connects them to our expanding audience of passionate sports fans. We look forward to an exciting 2016.”

I will only address this briefly tonight on the show. Look, I'm not dead. This is an occupational hazard. Everything will work out fine.— Jason Page (@TheBackPage) January 14, 2016
I appreciate those reaching out privately/publicly. This is the nature of the beast we call radio. I have had 3 great years @NBCSportsRadio.— Jason Page (@TheBackPage) January 14, 2016
Still have some shows left to do (i hope) and we will have some fun. Not the end for me... Just a new beginning around the corner. Thanks!— Jason Page (@TheBackPage) January 14, 2016
