Longtime sports radio host on 1620 The Zone in Omaha, NE, Nick Bahe will be leaving the station to pursue other broadcast opportunities.  The former Creighton University basketball player from 2006 – 08 announced his upcoming departure on Twitter and during Monday’s radio show.

For the last six years, the former Creighton Bluejay has hosted The Zone’s Game Time with Nick Bahe from 11am – 2pm.  Prior to his work on Game Time, Bahe co-hosted the Schick & Nick Show on KOZN 1620 from 2009 – 13.  Bahe’s final midday show on 1620 will be this Wednesday, July 17th.

“As far as what is specifically next for me, a lot of that’s up in the air,” Bahe told listeners during his Monday radio show. “But for now, I’m ready to attack my college basketball TV and national media dream.” 

Throughout his tenure on 1620, Bahe has also been featured on other platforms, most notably for college basketball.  According to Jon Nyatawa of the Omaha World-Herald, this winter will be Bahe’s sixth season as a Big East basketball analyst with Fox.  Bahe has also worked as an analyst for the Big Ten Network and CBS Sports, with the goal of one day calling an NCAA Tournament game on television.  Earlier this year, Bahe also joined Fox Sports Radio’s national lineup as a weekend host, partnering with Dan Beyer from 5 – 8pm ET on Sunday evenings. 

According to Omaha.com, KOZN will use guest hosts until they find a permanent midday show replacement for Bahe.  “Nick was such a great teammate, and someone who’s very much respected in the market,” said Mark Shecterle, general manager of NRG Media which owns 1620 The Zone.  “It’s going to be big shoes to fill.”

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
