There are smart, talented women to be heard in male-dominated sports TV. CBS Sports Network tries to level the field with "We Need to Talk," a groundbreaking series hosted, produced, directed by women. A rotating panel includes Pro Football Hall of Fame sportscaster Lesley Visser, celebrated journalist Andrea Kremer, CBS Sports Radio host Dana Jacobson, world champion boxer Laila Ali, and CBS college football reporter Allie LaForce. Their guests are athletes, TV/radio personalities, league/team executives, and news/sports journalists. Coordinating producer Suzanne Smith hopes the show provides girls with great role models in sports journalism.
Since talking sports during his undergrad days on the Syracuse University airwaves, Adam Schein's passionate, energetic, fan-friendly style has served him well, from the legendary WFAN in New York to a daily show on Sirius Radio. It's also prepared him for his dream job -- "Time to Schein," a national weekday series on CBS Sports Network. In a fast-moving, unscripted format, the host presents his unique perspective on the latest news and social media trends, provides bold predictions and interacts with key players, personalities and league personnel. Schein also hosts "That Other Pregame Show" and "NFL Monday QB" on CBS Sports Network during the NFL season.
The popular morning drive program, simulcast from CBS Radio's WFAN studio in New York, features former NFL quarterback and longtime CBS football analyst Boomer Esiason and veteran radio host Craig Carton talking sports for four hours each weekday. The state of New York sports is certainly a main topic of conversation, but the duo also discuss national stories and conduct interviews with current and former sports icons, league personnel, and a variety of national celebrities from the entertainment and music industries.
Add Doug Gottlieb to a burgeoning list of sports radio hosts whose shows have become go-to simulcast fare. The reason being, a block of TV airtime is filled with live content that is relatively inexpensive to produce, and sports fans are attracted to guys like Gottlieb who -- love 'em or hate 'em -- present unfiltered, polarizing opinions. A former star point guard at Oklahoma State who set a number of assists records there, Gottlieb was a college basketball analyst at ESPN before joining CBS in 2012.
