Does AM1000 put in another vanilla national show or local content?

During the Boers retirement show, Terry made a comment about Greenberg's "promotion" or something like that. I then tried to Google it, and I couldn't find anything. Maybe that new show is what Terry was alluding too.

i noticed that during the holidays they were plopping golic's kid in there in the golic chair, so i wouldn't be surprised if they tried to hook up golic with "golic and son" or something while greenberg ascends further up the ladder towards ???

honestly, to wherever greenberg ends up: you can do a lot worse than mike greenberg. he's eminently "solid" at everything he does, and maybe he wants to stop waking up early and anchor the ~5pm sportscenter or something? i know him and golic had a run doing that for awhile, and honestly i can see greenberg not wanting to wake up at 330-4am most days of the year, you know?

Good catch. Makes sense.

His son sounds like he is devouring a large piece of meat.

When ESPN announced that Michelle Beadle was replacing Sage Steele as full-time host of NBA Countdown, it led to wild speculation that the Worldwide Leader was cutting ties with Steele. But according to the Sporting News, Steele is apparently on her way to becoming a morning show anchor. Mike McCarthy writes that ESPN is about to name Steele as Mike Greenberg’s sidekick on his about-to-be announced show that will be based out of New York.

The long-awaited morning program will apparently end the 17-year partnership between Greenberg and Mike Golic on ESPN Radio. It will signal yet another foray into morning television for ESPN that has included "Cold Pizza," "1st and 10" and "SportsCenter:AM."

For Steele, being on the morning show would give her some stability and a regular role. Plus, it would give her some positive news especially after a post on Instagram about a protest at Los Angeles International Airport didn’t go over well, and a Facebook post on diversity that got her called out.

The uproar after ESPN announced Beadle as NBA Countdown’s full-time host led president John Skipper to issue a statement expressing his confidence in Steele, but the speculation didn’t die down.

After the Countdown announcement, ESPN assigned Steele to cover The Masters for its SportsCenter on the Road segments. Awful Announcing was informed that Steele would remain on SportsCenter on the Road for the foreseeable future.

But if the morning show is Steele’s light at the end of the tunnel, then it buffers Skipper’s public vote of confidence and could quiet the critics who have been angry over her conservative statements. But critics aside and if the Sporting News report is solid, then it appears that Steele isn’t going anywhere and is on firm ground with ESPN management.

Steele will now have the opportunity to make a fool of herself on a daily basis.

Bloodbath on the horizon at ESPN. I bet Mike and Mike are done soon:

It is amazing how the cable tv landscape is changing almost akin to the attrition seen with newspapers.

Sounds like it is going to be 100 on air people. Apparently this is happening today.

Couldn't happen to a more arrogant and deserving bunch. The only thing that would make me happier today is if the bloodbath took out WSCR save for Parkins.

I wonder if a lot of football guys will get the ax after the draft?

Trent Dilfer got the heave-ho. Danny Kanell is out as well.
