ESPN Radio Announces Major Lineup Changes

Given the results of some ratings battles, changes at ESPN Radio are in order. And these changes have been talked about/planned/rumored for some time. Just minutes ago, some programming line-up changes were made official. Of course, this is more a national ESPN Radio initiative than it is a local ESPN 1000 initiative. The Dan LeBatard Show anchors the new ESPN Radio weekday afternoons and evenings; it will make its national debut September 30. Sedano & Stink (no, this isn’t a show about the 2013 Chicago White Sox or Adam Dunn) premieres September 9th nationally...

Harry Teinowitz discussed his ESPN 1000 Firing on 670 The Score

Former WMVP AM 1000 co-host Harry Teinowitz was on WSCR 670 The Score this morning to discuss his dismissal from ESPN. Teinowitz was on with Mac & Spiegs. I typed out some of the highlights of what was said, and if/when The Score posts audio, I will link it. Teinowitz discussed some Bulls and Blackhawks today, but we know the number one discussion topic that drew people in. When pink-slipped, Teinowitz was given that standard corporate/human resources/public relations b.s. “we want to move in another direction.”

He asked why?

“Well, you’ve been here the longest,” he claims they said.

Colin Cowherd coming to ESPN 1000, WMVP Shuffling Lineup

Colin Cowherd coming to ESPN 1000, WMVP Shuffling Lineup
It's official:  Colin Cowherd to WMVP 1000, ESPN radio. So says the (Sherman Report). Colin Cowherd, the former co-host of Sports Nation with Michelle Beadle and Charissa Thompson, (have to link to a Charissa Thompson photo gallery whenever mentioning her name)  will be heard more on ESPN’s local stations, including Chicago. Since WMVP-AM 1000 fired Harry Teinowitz from its afternoon team with Carmen DeFalco and John Jurkovic, you knew a line-up shuffling was in the mix. The station is also trailing it's main rival, 670 The Score in the ratings department, so they have to do something to shake things up. Maybe Colin Cowherd is the answer. Colin Cowherd means one less hour of local programming, in exchange for an hour of national programming. ESPN 1000 will move the Tom Waddle-Marc Silverman duo from 9 a.m.-1 p.m mid morning to the afternoon drive 2-6 where they will compete directly with Boers and Bernstein. (Who currently have a new goofy segment going intended to increase listener interaction). It's the the afternoon demographic that ESPN 1000 is strategically looking to improve upon the most. Carmen DeFalco and John Jurkovic will shift to the 10 a.m.-1 p.m. slot. The 'Herd, the national show of Colin Cowherd will air from 9-10 a.m...

ESPN 1000 fires Harry Teinowitz

(UPDATE: Harry Teinowitz discussed his firing on WSCR 670 The Score today!) The ESPN 1000 afternoon show "Carmen, Jurko and Harry" is sans Harry Teinowitz now, reports Time Out Chicago's Robert Feder, as Harry Teinowitz has been dismissed from WMVP. (Update: ESPN 1000 announces lineup shuffling, including addition of Colin Cowherd) Teinowitz had been with the station since 1998; the ex-stand-up comic previously co-hosted on WMVP's predecessor, the old WLUP, and also served as sports anchor on Danny B. and Johnny B. Harry Teinowitz wasn't told that this would be his last show until after he signed off yesterday. So this break-up appears to be anything but mutual. CJ&H were losing their ratings slot to B&B. WSCR's Boers and Bernstein had a decided advantage in the latest ratings report...
