FOX Sports Radio nabs top name in Doug Gottlieb.

Fox Sports Radio has added veteran sports media personality Doug Gottlieb to the network’s weekday afternoon lineup, beginning April 24. “The Doug Gottlieb Show” garners a prime daypart in afternoon drive, 3pm-6 pm, where he replaces Jay Mohr.

The net has more than 150 stations nationwide, in addition to Fox Sports Radio’s channel on iHeartRadio’s digital radio platform. Originating from Los Angeles, Fox says the “fast-paced program will feature Gottlieb’s unique perspective on the latest headlines, as well as listener interaction and conversations with the biggest names in sports.” He will also serve as a basketball analyst for FS1, providing insights and analysis for “Skip And Shannon: Undisputed,” “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” and other programs.

The word on Gottlieb comes two days after CBS Radio announced that its “Tiki and Tierney” show—with hosts Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney—would be moving in April from weekdays 9am-noon, to afternoon drive, 3pm-6 pm, replacing Gottlieb’s show, which had aired since the network’s 2013 launch. At CBS Radio, Gottlieb was also an analyst for CBS Sports, CBS Sports Network and CBSSports.com.

Gottlieb says, “I couldn’t be happier to join Fox Sports Radio and FS1. This is an exciting next step in the evolution of ‘The Doug Gottlieb Show.’ Fox Sports has created a multiplatform, innovative, high-quality sports entertainment destination.”

Added Don Martin, senior VP Sports Programming for Premiere Networks/Fox Sports Radio, “Doug’s experience behind the mic, on TV and courtside makes him an ideal addition to the Fox Sports family. We look forward to sharing his quick-witted, smart and outspoken brand of entertainment with our FSR audience.”

Gottlieb was previously a college basketball analyst at ESPN and host of “The Doug Gottlieb Show” on ESPN Radio. He also cohosted a midday sports talk show at WWLS-AM in Oklahoma City, OK. As a college basketball point guard at Notre Dame and Oklahoma State, he broke every assists record at OSU and in the Big 12 Conference. He is currently 11th all-time in assists in NCAA history, Fox says.
