It was reported last month that Doug Gottlieb would be leaving CBS/CBS Sports Radio for a position at Fox Sports which would include a show on FS1 and one on Fox Sports Radio. Well, that has in essence been confirmed by CBS Sports Radio as it has announced a new Monday-Friday lineup with the “Tiki and Tierney” show (Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney) moving into the daily 3-6 p.m. ET slot that will be left open by Gottlieb.

“Tiki and Tierney” had been occupying the 9 a.m. – noon slot. Replacing them will be Damon Amendolara’s “The DA Show” which had been broadcast from 6 — 10 p.m. ET on weeknights.

In the wake of the new moves, Amendolara, Barber and Tierney have all signed new multi-year contracts to remain with CBS Sports Radio for the foreseeable future.

The Doug Gottlieb Show’s final broadcast will be on Friday, April 14. Eric Spitz, Director of Programming for CBS Sports Radio gave the following statement on Gottlieb’s impending departure:

“Doug Gottlieb has been a trusted and sought-after voice on CBS Sports Radio since our 2013 launch and we wish him nothing but the very best in all his future pursuits.”

In addition to taking the Gottlieb slot, “Tiki and Tierney” will be simulcast on CBS Sports Network just as Gottlieb was.

Spitz added he’s thrilled to have “The DA Show” and “Tiki and Tierney” in new timeslots and firmly in place:

“Airing in new dayparts, these already popular shows will be introduced to scores of new listeners while undoubtedly continuing to serve their current audiences. The addition of a live simulcast of ‘Tiki and Tierney’ solidifies their popularity and relevance in today’s competitive sports arena.”

Here’s the schedule that will take effect on Monday, April 17. All times are Eastern:

Gio and Jones” with Gregg Giannotti and Brian Jones — 6:00 – 9:00 a.m.
“The DA Show” — 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
“The Jim Rome Show” — 12:00 – 3:00 p.m.
“Tiki and Tierney” — 3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
TO BE ANNOUNCED — 6:00 – 10:00 p.m.
“Ferrall on the Bench” with Scott Ferrall — 10:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
“After Hours with Amy Lawrence” — 2:00 – 6:00 a.m.

As you can see, CBS Sports Radio still has an opening from 6 — 10 p.m. Perhaps that will be filled in-house or by someone else. But as for the original reports about Gottlieb leaving for another network, CBS’ announcement confirms his departure.

    Doug “I only talk about college sports” Gottlieb.

  • MrBull

    Tiki ‘No Talent’ Barber on CBSSports TV 3 hrs. a day Monday-Friday…that is just inhumane to the sports fan….

    • Dunleavy

      I can handle Tiki; he’s just boring. but sanctimonius Brandon Tierney just grates on me.

  • Respected Citizen

    I forgot this was a thing. It’s hard to believe there are so many sports talk radio networks that Ferrall has a national show.

  • Real Talk

    I can’t listen to ESPN radio… CBS and Fox sports do a better job of avoiding political stuff

    • Tookie Clothespin

      Don’t know about CBS but, Fox Sports you couldn’t be more wrong about. A few years back there was a contract dispute where I live and ESPN Radio was replaced by Fox Sports for a couple of weeks. It was nothing but politics. And the hosts talked about it in the dumbest way. It was all very lowest common denominator kind of talk with no nuance whatsoever. I had to turn it off. It was excruciating.

      • Real Talk

        You are ESPN guy, I know it’s pointless to argue

        • Tookie Clothespin

          Not really. As long as the topic is discussed intelligently I am willing to listen to just about anything. But, after two days of listening to Fox Sports Radio I realized that I hadn’t heard one intelligent or interesting thing uttered. Same reason why I stopped watching First Take once it became Skip saying a bunch of asinine crap nonstop. I will admit that I tend to be more liberal in my political views so, I don’t really notice the politics on ESPN. I’d be willing to bet that you tend to be more conservative in your beliefs as that’s the politics that were on Fox Sports Radio which is why it probably doesn’t stand out to you. The conservative aspect isn’t what turned me off though. I like listening to what Charles Krauthammer and Chris Wallace have to say when I tune into Fox News. They present things in an interesting manner that make me think even though I tend to disagree with their conclusions. Shawn Hannity and Tucker Carlson are idiots that that do lowest common denominator type stuff. So, I tune them out. That’s what I found when I listened to Fox Sports Radio.

        So far, I haven’t heard anything crazy coming out of CBS and NBC’s sports radio networks so far.

  • Marvin G.

    When I think of Tiki Barber, I am always reminded of him dumping his pregnant wife for a sweet young thing. An inexcusable act. Just my opinion.

  • Devin McMusters

    Awesome. All we get is Fox Sports Radio. The boneheads that took over for Jay Mohr are terrible.
