Starting Monday, Bartsool Radio will roll out a drastically new weekday lineup less than one year after the station launched on SiriusXM.

The schedule change helps fill the void left by Pat McAfee who infamously departed the channel late this past summer.  McAfee’s show aired from 10 – noon ET which has recently been replaced by a rerun of Barstool Breakfast.

From 7 – 10am ET programming will remain unchanged, featuring Barstool Breakfast followed by The Cousins.  Barstool Breakfast will still be hosted by Willie Colon and Francis Ellis.  Shaun Latham, also known as 20 Dollar Chef will get his own one-hour show each day at 10am joined by Ben Friedman and Jourdyn Berry.

PFT Commenter will host Big If True with Trill Withers, Jeff Lowe, KenJac and Liz Gonzales who leaves the Barstool Radio afternoon show.  PFT will host the show daily, with the others serving as a rotating supportive cast.

The Evening Yak with Big Cat moves to lunchtime, airing from noon – 1pm.  KFC is moved off Barstool Radio, to host a show stacked with personality alongside Jared Carrabis and Kayce Smith from 1 – 3pm.  Chicks in the Office changes from a 1pm start time to 3pm and Barstool Radio remains from 4 – 6pm.

With KFC no longer on the 4pm show, Portnoy and Tommy Smokes will be joined by Sam Riggs Bozoian on Barstool Radio from 4 – 6pm.  Hi Haters hosted by two former Marines, Kate and Chaps will round out the new lineup from 6 -7pm, instead of their late night 10pm spot.

The most notable host missing from the new lineup is Dallas Braden, the former MLB pitcher previously hosted Dialed – In from 2 – 4pm ET.  During the announcement, Portnoy also added he will be rotating around the schedule, regularly joining multiple shows.  Barstool Radio can be heard on SiriusXM channel 85, where it debuted January 17 of this year.

WQAM midday host Jonathan Zaslow is no longer with WQAM in Miami.

The radio station has removed his show from the website and references to him and his normal 10a-2p ET midday timeslot program have been scrubbed from the station website.

Zaslow tweeted at 5:19p ET confirming the news.

Whether or not this has any effect on his involvement with the Miami Heat broadcasts is unknown as of now.

Zaslow had been with 790 the Ticket since 2004. He was transitioned from Audacy-owned 790 to sister station AM 560 Sports WQAM last October. During his tenure he has worked with a number of established local voices including Joy Taylor, Amber Wilson, Brett Romberg, and Brendan Tobin amongst others.

WQAM has gone thru a number of changes, including a rebranding effort to call the station “560 The Joe”. That ended last year with the station returning to the AM 560 Sports WQAM brand listeners were more familiar with. What they have planned next in Zaslow’s timeslot is unclear but local listeners will likely get some answers next week.

Vanessa and Gallant

Changes are taking place in Houston sports media. First, the Houston Rockets will have a new television sideline reporter this season, and she’s a familiar name to Houston sports fans.

Vanessa Richardson, the now former co-host of ESPN 97.5’s Vanessa and Gallant, revealed that she will be on the sidelines for the NBA franchise covering the team for AT&T SportsNet Southwest.

She tweeted the news saying, “Elated to be the new Houston Rockets sideline reporter! I can’t wait to travel the country & share the stories of this dynamic team during 80+ games on AT&T SportsNet Southwest. I’ll continue to fill-in as a host/reporter for Astros broadcasts as well.”

Richardson’s co-host, Paul Gallant, tweeted that with Richardson leaving the show for the Rockets sideline gig, Vanessa and Gallant will become the Paul Gallant Show. The solo show led by Gallant begins Monday September 26th.

“We’re excited to have Paul host his own show”, said Todd Farquharson, General Manager of ESPN 97.5 & 92.5.  “He’s super creative, energetic, and likeable.  He’ll get the audience involved and have fun.”

Paul commented, “You know what I’ve always loved about sports talk radio?  That it’s interactive.  Whether through a phone call, text message, tweet or on Twitch, it’s the best place for sports fans to come together and celebrate…or vent.  And that’s what The Paul Gallant Show is going to be…Houston’s platform to talk about its teams. THE most interactive sports talk show in Houston.”

Ken Carman: Al Michaels ‘Feels Untethered’ On Amazon Prime Video

“The thing that stuck out was Kirk Herbstreit ripping the elf,” said Carman. “Don’t be ripping Brownie the Elf, man.”

The Cleveland Browns defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers during Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime Video. 92.3 The Fan morning host Ken Carman applauded Al Michaels for his performance during the presentation.

“Al Michaels feels untethered for the first time. He’s not network television anymore and he can say whatever he wants. We interviewed him on the pregame show and I was nervous,” Carman said.

“He’s a legend,” co-host Anthony Lima added.

During the final play of the game, the Steelers fumbled a lateral into the endzone which the Browns recovered to make the final score 29-17. Michaels said “that may be meaningful to some of you. And you know who I mean”, alluding to people who had placed wagers on the game.

Carman, who hosts two-hours of pre-game coverage on the Browns Radio Network, continued to discuss how nervous he was interviewing Michaels. He also discussed how impressive Amazon’s behind-the-scenes production was, pointing out the only football broadcast with more cameras is the Super Bowl. More than 400 people work behind the scenes for Amazon Prime Video.

“The thing that stuck out was Kirk Herbstreit ripping the elf,” said Carman. “Don’t be ripping Brownie the Elf, man.”

Carman later said people angry that Michaels misspoke by saying the Pro Football Hall of Fame is “down I-71” instead of I-77 were unreasonable, and joked “Al Michaels hasn’t been on a highway in 20 years”.
