  1. The lineup for the new CBS Sports Radio network is looking really good, so far. This new network will be very successful for CBS. Sports format makes money in the Radio business and CBS has proven within the last few years…they are taking charge and dominating the market

    CBS Radio does it again…..Great company

  2. I’m glad you have John Feinstein but you must get him in New York. I have read all of his books and he is undoubtably the BEST. Good work!!

  3. Look please stop issuing your show which is suppose to be about sports to spew your anti gun BS. This show is suppose to be about sports not politics. New gun control laws will not fix anything because crazy people and criminals don’t obey laws anyway. Lets keep it to sports.

  4. Johns clips on WIP make my ears bleed. i cant turn the channel fast enough. his viewpoints are biased, offensive, and unsubstantiated. Please stop!

  5. thanks so much for john. was getting a little tired of the narcissistic histrionics of colin cowherd. finally some intelligent radio in the morning.
