Sports Host, Comedian Jay Mohr OUT At Fox Sports Radio
Jay Mohr stated: “I’ve always loved radio, and having a national platform to share my brand of sports talk and comedy was an incredible experience. I loved interacting with the fans, athletes and sports figures over the past three years, but it’s become difficult to juggle the commitment of a three-hour weekday radio show with a film and TV career, stand-up comedy shows, as well as time with my family. It was a tough decision to leave radio, but I appreciate all the support from the team at FOX Sports Radio and Premiere Networks, as well as the listeners and fans.”
Julie Talbott, President of Premiere Networks, stated: “When we partnered to launch Jay Mohr Sports, we aimed to create something truly different – a fusion of comedy, sports and entertainment – and it was very successful. We’re proud of what we accomplished together and wish Jay the best of luck as he focuses on the next chapter of his entertainment career.”
A new sports talk program will be announced soon for the Monday through Friday, 3-6 p.m. ET timeslot. In the interim, FOX Sports Radio’s Dan Beyer and Jonas Knox will serve as guest hosts.
