Fox Sports Radio Announces New Weeknight Shows

Fox Sports Radio has added two new evening shows to replace Steve Gorman Sports and JT the Brick. Both of those shows parted ways with the network last week.

The first new show is Straight Outta Vegas hosted by RJ Bell. The hour long show will air every weeknight starting at 6pm Eastern. The show has spent the past year as a twice-weekly program offered as part of FSR’s weekend lineup.

Bell is the founder and CEO of Pregame.com. His show is the first nationally syndicated sports gambling-focused show offered to terrestrial radio. The move to weeknights puts Straight Outta Vegas in a “pregame” sort of slot for all East Coast games. FSR’s Jonas Knox will be pert of the cast, as will betting experts Brad Powers and Steve Fezzik.

Another weekend show is also moving into Fox Sports Radio’s 7pm ET timeslot. The Odd Couple featuring Chris Broussard and Rob Parker debuted as a Sunday show back in March. It will move to weeknights starting on September 17. Parker and Broussard have been seen on a number of Fox Sports 1 programs since joining the company.

“This historic new lineup further solidifies FOX Sports Radio’s standing as the preeminent sports network in the nation,” said Don Martin, SVP Sports Programming for Premiere Networks, and Scott Shapiro, VP of Sports Programming for Premiere Networks, in a joint statement. “It’s now crystal clear that when you’re looking for the best, live sports-talk, this is the place to tune in. Listeners who want to be entertained, informed, and emotionally invested with the most-compelling personalities and storytellers in the industry will be rewarded with every listening occasion.”

The new lineup includes an additional hour for Jason Smith and Mike Harmon. Their show now begins at 10pm ET. The new weekday lineup for Fox Sports Radio is as follows:

6am-9am   Outkick The Coverage with Clay Travis

9am-12pm  The Dan Patrick Show

12pm-3pm  The Herd with Colin Cowherd

12pm-3pm  The Rich Eisen Show

3pm-6pm    The Doug Gottlieb Show

6pm-7pm    Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell

7pm-10pm  The Odd Couple with Chris Broussard & Rob Parker

10pm-2am  The Jason Smith Show with Mike Harmon

2am-6am     The Ben Maller Show

Jason Fitz: Keyshawn Johnson Cannot Be Serious With Trevor Lawrence Take

“There is no way Trevor Lawrence is the eighth-best quarterback out of eight left in the playoffs after doing what he did after the first quarter of that last game.”

When he was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2021, Trevor Lawrence was heralded as a once-in-a-lifetime type of prospect. While his career had a bit of a rocky start, he has shown a lot in year two, including leading one of the largest come-from-behind victories in playoff history Saturday night against the Chargers. Jason Fitz cannot believe that isn’t enough to impress Keyshawn Johnson.

The ESPN Radio morning man ranked the eight remaining starting quarterbacks in the NFL playoffs and put Lawrence dead last.

“Trevor Lawrence at eight? I know Keyshawn Johnson is out there in California, but I want to party with Key because obviously, he was doing a little partying before this show, Harry,” Jason Fitz told his partner on Tuesday’s edition of Fitz & Harry. “There is no way Trevor Lawrence is the eighth-best quarterback out of eight left in the playoffs after doing what he did after the first quarter of that last game.”

Fitz noted that during the season people started calling Lawrence “Trevor Tangerines” for the daringness he continued to show even after things looked bad for him and the Jaguars. He said that on Saturday night, he should have been called “Trevor Watermelons”.

Jason Fitz acknowledged that it would be hard to rank anyone ahead of Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, and Jalen Hurts, which made up Keyshawn Johnson’s top four. But Fitz doesn’t think this is a matter of Lawrence being disrespected for being number eight, behind Brock Purdy, who began the season as the 49ers’ third-string quarterback, instead of number seven.

“Considering the whole body of work and the way that Trevor Lawrence has played since week nine, you wouldn’t have to press hard to put Daniel Jones below Trevor Lawrence.”

He added that Keyshawn Johnson is also being influenced by the uniform Trevor Lawrence wears.

“I think there’s a little element that speaks to the fact that we have a perception on certain organizations. I’m just saying — four interceptions or not — this is the analogy I keep making this week: If Trevor Lawrence had the bounceback game with the star in his helmet as the quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys, today the conversation would be like ‘Well, you can’t hold him down the whole game’.”

Boomer Esiason: ManningCast Proves Peyton Manning Can Never Be a Coach

“He’s got no patience whatsoever.”

Don’t expect to see Peyton Manning on an NFL sideline. He may be one of the best quarterbacks the league has ever seen, but Manning isn’t cut out to be a coach according to Boomer Esiason.

On Tuesday morning, Esiason and the rest of the Boomer & Gio cast listened to highlights of the previous night’s ManningCast. They enjoyed the audio of Peyton Manning losing his temper after Cowboys kicker Brent Maher missed his third extra-point attempt of the night.

The clip, which has since gone viral, includes Manning asking if a kicker can be cut at halftime of a playoff game.

“This is why Peyton can’t coach,” Esiason said in response to the audio. “He’s got no patience whatsoever.” 

The chemistry and authenticity of Peyton and Eli is often cited as the appeal of the ManningCast. Esiason noted that was what is on display in moments the brothers cannot control.

Boomer Esiason was a guest on the week eight ManningCast, which featured his former team, — the Cincinnati Bengals — playing Cleveland Browns. Esiason said at the time that while it was a distracting way to try and follow a game, being a part of the show is a lot of fun. He echoed that praise Tuesday morning.

“Those things are really unbelievably done. I mean, they are funny.”
