CSN Mid-Atlantic has struck an agreement with 106.7 The Fan to present a live simulcast of “The Sports Junkies” weekdays from 6a-10a ET starting September 6th. The new partnership will put the popular Washington D.C.-area sports radio show on television for the first time in its 20-year history.

Hosted by John Auville, Eric Bickel, Jason Bishop and John-Paul Flaim, “106.7 The Fan’s Sports Junkies” will be presented in its entirety throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia on CSN, CSNmidatlantic.com and the NBC Sports app. Through the partnership, CSN will also feature show content across its TV, online, mobile and social media platforms, including daily highlight episodes.

“The Sports Junkies’ unique brand of humorous dialogue and insightful commentary is highly valued by sports fans in this region, as evidenced by the tremendous popularity, success and longevity of the show and its hosts,” said CSN Mid-Atlantic President Rebecca Schulte. “We are excited to add this entertaining content to our robust lineup of local team coverage and expand our relationship with 106.7 The Fan.”

“The Sports Junkies are the most dynamic radio personalities in Washington, with a dedicated fan base of listeners on radio, streaming, and via podcast,” said 106.7 The Fan Program Director Chris Kinard. “We’re thrilled to work with our partners at CSN on this important brand extension of 106.7 The Fan’s original programming.”

Auville (Cakes), Bickel (E.B.), Bishop (Lurch) and Flaim (J.P.), are longtime friends and Washington, D.C.-area natives that got their start on public access cable television in 1995 before moving to radio in 1996. Now one of the region’s longest-running and most-popular radio shows, “The Sports Junkies” has aired on weekday mornings since 2006, and has served as 106.7 The Fan’s morning drive show since the station’s launch in 2009.

The four hosts have appeared regularly on CSN since 2013. For three seasons, they led “Table Manners,” a weekly conversation series that featured prominent guests from sports, entertainment and politics. During the 2015 NFL season, Auville, Bickel, Bishop and Flaim hosted the Tuesday edition of CSN’s daily “Geico Football Central.” They have also served as guests in CSN’s news and analysis shows, including “#RedskinsTalk.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
