Jim Rome Leaves Premiere For CBS Sports Radio


Jim Rome has left Premiere Radio Networks, the only network he's ever been with, and joined CBS Sports Radio. CBS says Rome will become a member of the line-up when its 24/7 radio network launches next year. Jim Rome will serve as host of The Jim Rome Show, broadcast live weekdays from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. ET beginning on Wednesday, January 2, 2013.

Also at the start of the new year, Rome will provide his unique take on the days sports headlines via the CBS Sports Minute -- 60-second commentaries that can be heard hourly on CBS Sports Radio affiliate stations. Rome recently signed a multi-year agreement with CBS contributing across a variety of platforms. In addition to his weekday ROME show on CBS Sports Network, he provides commentary for CBS Sports and  Further, Rome will be hosting a talk series for Showtime, which will air later this fall on the premium network.

CBS Radio President and CEO Dan Mason said, Jim would be at the top of any list highlighting sports radios most authoritative and opinionated hosts, which is exactly why were thrilled to welcome him to CBS Sports Radio. We are building a network that showcases the incredible assets of CBS RADIO and CBS Sports, and creating a strategic opportunity for growth in this untapped marketplace. Jims presence in this marquee time period adds strength to our lineup and exceptional value to our advertisers.

Rome added, I am excited for the continued opportunity to extend my personal contributions to the various platforms that this incredible company has to offer. I am proud to be a part of the CBS family and look forward to the successful launch of CBS Sports Radio.

The next question is, who gets Dan Patrick when his contract expires?
