    I admit to being surprised. He long talked about those who left ESPN and became irrelevant in their next gig.

    Interesting to see the dominos fall if he lands at Fox Sports. Aside from the early morning show of Mike North and somebody, they seem to be set with Patrick, Risen, Jay Mohr, JT the Brick and Jason whoever in the lineup.

    Wouldn't mind seeing JT and Tom Looney out the door, though. They are pretty over the top when it comes to ego vs. talent.

    Cowherd's long-time executive producer is the new president of Fox Sports. And I imagine he'd prefer to live on the West Coast.

    Seems like a no-brainer.

    That fox morning show might be the worst I've ever heard.

    FOX has tried to be a player in sports radio but it has never materialized. Espn cornered the market early with affiliates and then strong armed them all - if they don't carry Mike and Mike, they don't get other espn programming.

    Mike and Mike is the best advertisement for listening to podcasts or books on tape in history. That is the most bland, corporate and packaged show. It's perfect ESPN, hour upon hour of milk toast and corp propaganda

    Fully agree, Abbott. M&M is the worst "high-profile" national talk show, although JT The Brick might not be far off.

    We're in a far different place in 2015 than even two years ago. Podcast technology is such that I don't even need traditional radio. I could get my Cowherd fix delayed - I can listen to other shows that are out-of-market a couple of hours late.

    If you're a "name" broadcaster, you just need a podcast platform that works. This is where it'll get very interesting -- why take a chance on some unknown when you can always get your "name" shows.
