The Rich Eisen Show, which has been available on the Audience Network for more than five years, is in search of a new home. The popular TV and radio host tweeted the news Thursday afternoon.
Last week, AT&T, which owns DIRECTV, announced plans to transition their Audience Network into an HBO Max Preview Channel. The news signaled a potential impasse for Eisen and his partnership with the Audience Network. On Thursday, Eisen confirmed he was looking to find a new landing spot for his daily TV and radio show.
The Rich Eisen Show launched on the Audience Network in October 2014. One month later, Eisen began simulcasting his show on FOX Sports Radio, a subsidiary of Premier Networks/iHeartRadio. If Eisen’s show does halt when Audience Network ends next month, FOX Sports Radio affiliates can pick up The Herd with Colin Cowherd which airs in the same timeslot.
But according to Eisen’s tweet, he’s already making progress toward finding a new broadcast partner. Eisen added that his show will be available on Audience Network until its last day, which will come at the end of February.
