790 The Ticket is losing one of their key talents next week. Amber Wilson is leaving the station after spending the past five years in various hosting roles. 

“My big announcement is that next week will be my last week on the show,” Wilson said on Friday’s Zaslow and Amber. “A big announcement, a sad announcement. It has been a really fun five years. I’ve been here just over five years doing this show. It’s been a crazy five years. In my personal life it has been a really tumultuous time. Some really good things have happened over the last five years, and some really bleepy things have happened over the last five years, and this show has been a constant for me over that time.”

Wilson confirmed that she still hopes to continue her weekend role on ESPN Radio. The host is moving away from The Ticket to focus more on her law career.

“I’ve really enjoyed working with everybody here, so it kinda sucks,” Wilson said. “I’m sad, but I also am excited for whatever is to come. I am going to right now focus a little bit more on the law firm. My husband has really been crushing the game on that side, and he needs some extra help. It comes at a good time for me because I’m doing ESPN Radio on the weekends.”

Wilson had to follow quite the act when she replaced Joy Taylor following her departure to Fox Sports. Five years later, she is happy with how she’s been welcomed in the Miami sports scene.

“Listeners made it really easy on me, for the most part,” Wilson said. “There was like one dude who I think texted for two or three years solid that he missed Joy [Taylor]. But other than that guy, everybody made it really easy on me. I really appreciate you guys. I really appreciate all the listeners.”

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.”

Colin Cowherd: Tony Romo Regressing Because He Loves Golf

“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.

ESPN Radio has added two upcoming Lakers games to its schedule. The network will carry the national feeds of games on February 7 and 9. The first game is against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The second is against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Both games will be played in Los Angeles with a 9:30 PM Eastern tip. Marc Kestecher and Vince Carter will be on the call for both games.

As of Friday, February 3, LeBron James is 63 points away from Abdul-Jabbar’s 38,387 career points.
