CBS Sports Radio launched right after New Year’s Day in 2013. Aired on 300 stations nationwide, CBS Sports Radio began with some big fanfare having brought in some heavy hitters including Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb, John Feinstein and Scott Ferrall. It managed to fill its daily lineup with local sports radio veterans like Damon Amendolara, Brandon Tierney and Chris Moore. Weekend hosts have included former ESPN Radio host Amy Lawrence, Jody McDonald, Marc Malusis and Damon Bruce.

Kicking off its lineup was the TBD in the AM show with Tierney, former New York Giants running back and failed Today Show experiment Tiki Barber and former ESPN’er Dana Jacobson. Here’s how the original daily lineup looked (all times eastern):

6 — 9 a.m.: TBD in the AM
9 a.m. — noon: John Feinstein
noon — 3 p.m.: Jim Rome
3 — 6 p.m.: Doug Gottlieb
6 — 10 p.m.: MOJO with Chris Moore and Brian Jones
10 p.m. — 2 a.m.: Ferrall on the Bench
2 — 6 a.m.: DA Show with Damon Amendolara

The lineup has remained intact up until now. Starting in January 2015, there will be a new morning show, different midday hosts and a shuffle in the nighttime, but we’ll get to that later.

There have been rumblings (notably a report from The Big Lead) about dissent among TBD in the AM and an interesting way that Chris Moore learned about the lineup shuffle. We told you last month about Feinstein being let go. And Dana Jacobson did confirm on Twitter that she will be leaving CBS Sports Radio for opportunities with CBS Sports/CBS Sports Network such as Inside College Basketball, continuing to contribute to We Need to Talk and other programs.

So with Jacobson and Feinstein gone, you know that CBS Sports Radio is in need of some new hosts and personalities. How will the new lineup look? This week the network announced new shows for the mornings, middays, evenings and overnights. It is as if CBS Sports Radio is relaunching. Here’s the new daily schedule which begins on Friday, January 2, 2015, two years to the day when the network premiered.

6 — 9 a.m.: Brian Jones and Gregg Giannotti
Jones moves from the nighttime show to anchor the lineup in the mornings. He’s also seen on CBS/CBS Sports Network in the college football studio. Giannotti goes national after being on CBS Sports Radio’s Pittsburgh station.

9 a.m. — noon: Tiki and Tierney
Tiki Barber and Brandon Tierney move to a later timeslot and no longer have to worry about early wake-up calls. We’ll see if this revamped show can move the needle in this new block.

noon — 3 p.m.: Jim Rome
3 — 6 p.m.: Doug Gottlieb

No changes here. Rome and Gottlieb are the holdovers in the afternoon.

6 — 10 p.m.: The DA Show
Damon Amendolara moves from overnights to the evenings when a lot of action takes place. This was his customary spot when he was in Boston before going to CBS Sports Radio and taking over the overnights. Amendolara is also known for his over 1,000 appearances on NFL Network’s NFL Top 10 series. If you happen on one of the repeats of the program, chances are very high that you’ll see D.A.

10 p.m. — 2 a.m.: Ferrall on the Bench
No change here. The grizzly-voiced Scott Ferrall remains in the late night spot to wrap up the night’s sports action.

2 — 6 a.m.: After Hours With Amy Lawrence
Lawrence becomes a full-time host on CBS Sports Radio and one of the few women to host a sports radio show solo, in fact she might be the only one. A former co-host in Providence and Oklahoma, Lawrence takes over the reins from Amendolara in this slot.

We’ll see if CBS Sports Radio is patient with this new lineup or will make more wholesale changes in two years.
