The University of South Carolina Gamecock Radio Network is making changes to their broadcast, led by the addition of Chris Miller to host their pre and post-game show.  Miller will be joined by USC journalism professor, Greg Brannon on the broadcast.

“We are thrilled to bring on two professionals that have a great track record and history with sports,” said the Executive Producer of Gamecock Sports Properties, Liz McMillan. “I think they maybe mix it up a little bit and bring in a little bit of their personalities and knowledge.”

Pre-game coverage with Miller and Brannon on the Gamecock Radio Network will begin three hours before each game.  Brannon will serve as the broadcast’s in-game host, with both on-air personalities partnering for the Carolina Calls postgame show.

Miller’s addition to the broadcast fills the void left by longtime Gamecock pre and postgame host, Jay Philips, who was looking to free up some time on the weekends to spend with his family.  Philips departure comes after 17 years of involvement with the Gamecock football broadcast.  No longer part of the Gamecock Radio Network, fans can still hear Philips host his weekday radio show on 107.5 The Game in Columbia, SC.  

Play-by-play voice Todd Ellis and analyst, Tommy Suggs will both continue in their roles on the broadcast which encompasses nearly 20 radio stations in the region.  South Carolina begins their season on August 31st against the University of North Carolina.

Angelo Cataldi Staying With WIP Through Eagles Season

“I’m willing to stay until the week they’re eliminated, in case they make the playoffs.”

The retirement tour of WIP’s Angelo Cataldi has an end date…sort of.

Cataldi said during an appearance on the Working The Beat podcast he’d remain on the station’s morning show until the Philadelphia Eagles season is complete.

“I finally just said to my boss, ‘listen, it’s going to be weird for me to start an Eagles season and not know if I’m going to be there at the end,’” Cataldi said. “I’m willing to stay until the week they’re eliminated, in case they make the playoffs.”

He then joked, “if they’re bad this year, I’m done around Christmas”.

WIP has yet to name a replacement for Cataldi, who announced his upcoming retirement in October of last year.

Cataldi was later asked about former 97.5 The Fanatic host Mike Missanelli, who left the station, somewhat abruptly, in May.

“I don’t think it was respectful to him. I don’t think it was right,” Cataldi said. “I don’t know the internal politics of it. I’m pleased I never I never had to face that. He didn’t deserve it.”

He also added he offered Missanelli an opportunity to join his show to offer a farewell to Philadelphia listeners, but Missanelli’s non-compete agreement didn’t allow for it. Cataldi did say, however, that Missanelli’s non-compete runs out before his retirement.

It’s summer, and of course that means it’s vacation season.

ESPN 1000 host Marc Silverman is among those taking time this summer to vacation. Silvy was spending this week in Nashville celebrating his 10-year wedding anniversary.

But Barstool Big Cat, making his regular weekly appearance on the show with Silverman’s co-host Tom Waddle and Pat Boyle, couldn’t help but joke Silvy.

“It’s no surprise that Silvy is on vacation,” Big Cat said. “The guy lives for vacation. Does he even work?”

The trio kept the bit going, adding that Silverman prioritized getting in touch with Jay Cutler over spending time with his wife celebrating their anniversary.

“He texted him the minute he landed!” Waddle said.

“He probably was like, hey Ally why don’t you go do something, I’m gonna meet up with Jay,” Big Cat added. “He picked Nashville for a reason! He wanted to be closer to Jay.”

Rich Eisen Scolds Patriots Media For Questions To Bill Belichick

“It makes no sense to ask him that question to begin with,” he said. “And what do you think his answer is going to be?”

Training camp is only getting started, but it appears folks in the New England Patriots media corps are in mid-season form.

In his daily training camp press conference, Pats head coach Bill Belichick took questions from reporters inquiring about his knowledge of former quarterback Tom Brady being tampered with by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.

In typical Belichick fashion, his response to those questions was “We’re just focused on training camp.”

Rich Eisen took issue with the way the reporters asked Belichick about the situation.

“I know it’s a tough job. I know being on the beat is not easy,” he said. “But you cannot ask this man yes or no questions, certainly when you’re asking him about potentially explosive, controversial items like this one.”

Eisen just thought it was a silly line of questioning to begin with, because it’s not like Belichick would be honest.

“It makes no sense to ask him that question to begin with,” he said. “And what do you think his answer is going to be?”
