DOUG GOTTLIEB is exiting CBS SPORTS RADIO after his APRIL 14th show as the network reshuffles its lineup. GOTTLIEB has thrown his hat in the ring as a possible replacement for BRAD UNDERWOOD as head men's basketball coach at his alma mater, OKLAHOMA STATE UNIVERSITY.
GOTTLIEB will be replaced in the 3-6p (ET) slot by current 9a-noon hosts TIKI BARBER and BRANDON TIERNEY, who will also assume GOTTLIEB's TV simulcast on CBS SPORTS NETWORK, and DAMON "DA" AMENDOLARA is moving towards the daylight, from his current 6-10p slot to "TIKI AND TIERNEY"'s present 9a-noon slot. BARBER, TIERNEY, and AMENDOLARA have signed new multi-year renewals to remain with the network. No replacement for AMENDOLARA in evenings has been announced.
“We’re thrilled that our listeners will be able to enjoy TIKI, BRANDON and DA for years to come,” said Dir./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.
“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.”
