The Cleveland Browns have quickly transitioned from one of the NFL’s least discussed teams to boasting one of the league’s most exciting rosters.  

SiriusXM will look to capitalize on the Browns intrigue with a weekly one hour show called Dawg Pound Radio, mixing the franchise’s history with its highly anticipated present and future.  Former Browns quarterback and fan-favorite, Bernie Kosar will join the team’s longtime radio voice Jim Donovan as hosts of the weekly show.  Dawg Pound Radio will debut September 4th, airing every Wednesday from 7 – 8pm ET on the SiriusXM NFL Radio channel.

“My association with the Cleveland Browns started long before I wore that uniform. I’ve watched this team since I was a kid growing up Northeast Ohio,” Kosar said in the press release. “I’m so proud to have been a part of this franchise’s great history and I’m excited about its future. Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry, Nick Chubb, Myles Garrett… This is an incredibly exciting group of young Cleveland Browns players. I’m excited for the opportunity to team up with Jim, tell stories about my time with the Browns, talk with some of the team’s all-time greats, and cover everything happening with the current team.”

Kosar quarterbacked the Browns from 1985 – 1993, leading the franchise to three AFC Championship games.  His co-host on the new SiriusXM show, Jim Donovan has been the play-by-play voice of the Cleveland Browns Radio Network since 1999.

“To be sure, the Browns are one of the NFL’s most exciting and talked about teams heading into this season. They also have one of the richest histories in professional football and a dedicated fan base that has seen greatness and heartbreak through the years,” added Steve Cohen, SiriusXM’s SVP of Sports Programming. “This show will focus on both the Browns’ great past and its promising future, and will be something that anyone who loves football will enjoy. To have it hosted by Bernie Kosar, one of the franchise’s iconic players, and Jim Donovan, the voice of the Browns for two decades, is really special and means listeners are getting a true insider’s perspective week to week.”

Subscribers can listen to Dawg Pound Radio via SiriusXM NFL Radio channel 88 on the SiriusXM app, SiriusXM.com and their SiriusXM radios.

On Monday, the Pardon My Take podcast dropped their latest episode which featured an interview with Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Big Cat, one of the show’s co-hosts, is a Chicago Bears fan and has spent a lot of time not liking Rodgers publicly.

Colin Cowherd saw one of the many clips that the show shared and brought up how much he thought that Rodgers took ribbing from Big Cat and the podcast in stride. That’s when Joy Taylor offered that the interview could help Rodgers in the long run.

“It makes him astronomically more likeable,” Taylor said. “When you can show that you don’t take yourself that seriously, all of the animosity that people have towards you just kind of starts to wither away.”

She added that the disarming quality helps if people don’t perceive Rodgers as thinking he has all the answers.

“When people feel like they are projecting ‘I know more than you’ and ‘I’ve got it all figured out’ energy, people are like: ‘you got to be the smartest guy on the room all time time? You’re not.’

This is so likeable,” Taylor said. “It’s really funny.”

Cowherd agreed and even said he is probably going to go listen to it after the show.

“Aaron is genuinely laughing as they make fun of him and that is an incredibly endearing quality.”

Dennis Eckersley

On Monday, Dennis Eckersley announced that he was going to retire from the Boston Red Sox television booth at the end of this season. The current NESN analyst is leaving after twenty years on the air with the team.

The news broke during Toucher and Rich on 98.5 the Sports Hub and it gave show co-host Rich Shertenlieb a chance to mention the news and praise the departing personality.

“When Eckersley got in there (the booth),” Shertenlieb started, “he was great. It made all of them better when Dennis Eckersley was around. It’s going to be a huge loss.”

The show spent the rest of the segment talking about what Eckersley offered that made him so unique. That’s when Matt McCarthy, fill-in for Fred Toucher, said that Eckersley was exactly what you wanted in an analyst.

“You want someone that’s going to give you an opinion,” McCarthy said. “Eck gave you an opinion. He’ll be missed.”

McCarthy also pointed out that this is the latest major shakeup that has happened to the television broadcast in recent years.

“There’s no doubt this is a blow,” McCarthy added. “This is a tremendous loss to that Red Sox broadcast to which has taken a lot of hits over the years with the loss of Jerry Remy, the decision to move on from Don Orsillo and now Dennis Eckersley retiring… they are going to have to find an entertainer in there.
