A mainstay in the Rogers State athletic department, Assistant Athletic Director of Operations, Steve Braun, will take his talents to the local sports radio scene after spending eight years working on the Hill.

“Working at my alma mater has been an amazing experience and made leaving the Hill all the more difficult,” Braun said. “It’s been an honor to be along for such an incredible journey as a member of Hillcat Athletics and a part of my life I will always hold dear. I appreciate the student-athletes, coaches, administrators and the Rogers State community for making the last eight years of my life some of the best. I am excited to start the next chapter of my life, but I truly will be Forever A Hillcat!”

As the Assistant AD for Operations, Braun coordinated game operations, marketing, and helped with implementing compliance efforts.

He was a driving force behind the athletic department’s video streaming efforts, while contributing to the Hillcats’ social media presence.

Braun served as Sports Information Director from 2011 until his promotion in 2014, where he assisted in the publicity efforts and media operations for all of RSU’s sports.

Gregg Giannotti: CBS Won’t Show Deshaun Watson Accusers Sunday

“I think people know what’s going on. You’re not gonna show them and start trashing them on the broadcast.”

Quarterback Deshaun Watson is set to make his 2022 season debut against his former team on Sunday following an 11-game suspension. Watson has been accused of sexual misconduct, and 10 of the women who believe the now-Cleveland Browns QB preyed upon them are planning to attend the game in Houston. On Boomer & Gio on WFAN on Wednesday, co-host Gregg Giannotti had a thought on CBS cameras dedicating a snippet of the game broadcast to showing the women in attendance.

“I wonder does like the broadcast show them?” Gio asked to co-host Boomer Esiason. “Are you guys gonna have to talk about that on The NFL Today?”

“I have no idea,” Esiason responded. Boomer explained that they hadn’t had their production meeting for this week’s show, but he felt like beyond that he and Gio had already discussed the Watson situation at great length.

Still, Gio said if he were in charge of the CBS broadcast, he would find a way to show the alleged victims’ faces.

“I mean you could show them and explain the situation,” he said. “I think people know what’s going on. You’re not gonna show them and start trashing them on the broadcast.”

Once the 2022 NFL season started, and Watson accepted the suspension and began going through the various processes he needed to go through in order to be reinstated, the focus shifted away from the story. But Gio added that now that Watson is ready to play, the story gets thrust back into the limelight.

“Nobody was talking about it for weeks and weeks and weeks, and now he’s back,” he said. “And now it’s back.”

According to a report from Andrew Marchand and Ryan Glasspiegel of The New York Post, 98.7 ESPN New York is expanding DiPietro & Rothenberg to four hours as part of a revamped daily lineup. The changes are expected to go into effect on January 3rd.

DiPietro & Rothenberg currently airs on the station from 5a-8a while ESPN Radio’s national morning show — Keyshawn, JWill, & Max — airs from 8a-10a. By extending the local show, 98.7 ESPN New York will finally have a chance to feature a local show and compete in all four hours against WFAN’s Boomer & Gio.

Additionally, ESPN Radio’s Bart & Hahn will move back to 98.7 ESPN New York as an exclusively local show. Bart Scott played a portion of his NFL career for the New York Jets, and worked at both WFAN and 98.7 ESPN New York before the show moved to the national stage. Alan Hahn has spent more than 25 years working in New York media with Newsday, MSG Network, and 98.7 ESPN New York.

The changes create some adjustments for ESPN Radio’s national network too. Jason Fitz and Harry Douglas are listed as options for the newly opened 12p-3p slot on ESPN Radio according to the report. The network is also expected to pair Amber Wilson and Joe Fortenbaugh from 7p-9p to fill the timeslot vacated recently by Sarah Spain.

Greeny — hosted by Mike Greenberg — will remain in its current 10a-12p timeslot on the station. However, the move to a local morning show on 98.7 ESPN New York raises questions about KJM‘s future on ESPN Radio.

The Michael Kay Show, and the station’s other shows hosted by Dan Graca, Larry Hardesty and Gordon Damer all remained unchanged.

The Philadelphia Eagles are off to a 10-1 start, and while there’s criticism from sports media members inside the city, 94WIP afternoon host Jon Marks doesn’t want to hear it from those who aren’t fans, especially Chris Simms.

During Chris Simms Unbuttoned, the former NFL quarterback turned NBC Sports analyst said “people are scared to talk about Jalen Hurts” and that the third-year quarterback doesn’t pass tests “with flying colors”.

“He had him ranked as the 35th best quarterback in the league,” Marks said. “Now I can’t take anything he says serious. Kellen Mond — is he even in the league? I think he got released by the Vikings. So, anyway, whatever with Chris Simms.”

Co-host Ike Reese had less criticism for Simms but did say he disagreed.

“There’s an awful lot of qualifying comments,” Reese said. “Or compliments, I guess.”
