Billy “The Hill” McGill passed away this weekend. Don Henderson and I had the pleasure of talking with Billy twice on our “Sports Talk” show. This is the last interview we did with Billy and Eric Brach, the author of Billy’s autobiography, in November 2013.
(New York, N.Y.) CBS Sports Network, the 24-hour home of CBS Sports, will expand its live weekday studio programming with the addition of “The Doug Gottlieb Show.” The afternoon show broadcast nationally on CBS Sports Radio will be simulcast on CBS Sports Network beginning Monday, August 25. The three-hour program is hosted by Doug Gottlieb live Monday-Friday from 3:00-6:00 PM, ET.
“The Doug Gottlieb Show” debuted on January 2, 2013, and features national sports talk, headlines, and interviews with current and former sports icons, as well as newsmakers from the sports world and listener phone calls. The CBS Sports Network show will originate from the CBS Sports Radio studios in New York City.
“Adding The Doug Gottlieb Show greatly strengthens our afternoon line-up adding three hours of live and relevant content each day,” said Dan Weinberg, Senior Vice President, Programming, CBS Sports. “Doug’s show is high-energy, insightful and entertaining and we are excited to extend the reach of his radio show to the CBS Sports Network television audience.”
Eric Spitz, Director of Programming for CBS Sports Radio commented, “Doug is a cornerstone talent of CBS Sports Radio. To be able to expand the exposure of his program through CBS Sports Network is a win for everyone involved. I have no doubt Doug’s boundless energy, strong opinions and great passion will play well to a national television audience.”
