“We are so honored to be taking over this prestigious time slot,” said Gray. “I truly believe the connection with listeners in the morning is the deepest. We’re excited to be part of their morning routine, and getting the day off to a great start!”

“One of the keys to our show is that we fundamentally disagree on major sports topics and still have fun,” said Perloff. “Maggie and I have been friends since we were colleagues at Sports Illustrated and nothing is going to change that. Unless her Buffalo Bills beat my Philadelphia Eagles in the Super Bowl. Then she’s dead to me.”

D/FW Radio: The Dumb Zone Podcast Case Has Been Resolved

The case between Susquehanna Radio and Dan McDowell and Jake Kemp of The Dumb Zone podcast has been resolved, with no further trial, motions or hearings pending.

A new episode of The Dumb Zone was released shortly after the judge's ruling Tuesday, where Kemp read a statement short saying the resolution was "mutually agreed upon."

Dan McDowell and Jake Kemp, co-hosts of The Dumb Zone podcast and former KTCK 1310 The Ticket radio hosts, are recording and releasing new episodes at a fairly steady rate. 

Dan McDowell and Jake Kemp

The former hosts of 1310 The Ticket’s midday The Hang Zone program left the station over the summer, announcing their status on July 20 on YouTube after prolonged contract negotiations fell apart. The pair, who had been together as co-hosts since 2020, quickly moved to start their new podcast venture, unveiling their first The Dumb Zone episode on July 25 for the nice price of $6.90 a month.

David Berson To Succeed Sean McManus At CBS Sports

Sean McManus, one of the most integral executives in TV history, will retire as the chairman of CBS Sports early next year, The NY Post has learned.

McManus will be succeeded by his longtime No. 2, David Berson, who will retain his president’s title and add CEO of the division.

McManus, Berson

McManus began as the head of CBS Sports in 1996.

Two years later, McManus defined his legacy by leading CBS’ re-acquisition of the NFL package in 1998.

In 1993, before McManus was at the helm, CBS lost its rights to NFC games to Fox.

In the aftermath of losing the NFL, CBS, as a network, plummeted in the ratings, but its fortunes changed when football returned to Sundays.

Nearly a quarter-century later, the NFL is still at the core of CBS Sports and Paramount+’s plans — which also includes March Madness, the Masters and major college football.

McManus will stay on through the Super Bowl, which is on CBS, and the Masters.

“The timing just feels right to me,” McManus, 68, told The Post. “I’m proud of the fact that George [Cheeks, CBS president] and Bob Bakish, [president of Paramount Global] are in complete agreement that this timing is perfect. So I feel really good about it, and I have total and complete faith in David.”

SiriusXM Has Liberty Media's Proposal Under Consideration

Sirius XM Holdings Inc. Tuesday acknowledged that the special committee of independent directors of the board of SiriusXM received a non-binding proposal from Liberty Media Corporation regarding a potential transaction involving the Company. The potential transaction would consist of the separation of the assets and liabilities attributed to the Liberty SiriusXM tracking stock group from Liberty Media through the split-off of a newly formed company ("Newco") and the subsequent combination of Newco and SiriusXM, as a result of which the holders of Liberty SiriusXM tracking stock and SiriusXM common stock would all hold one class of common stock of the combined company (the "Proposal").

The Special Committee, together with its advisors, Solomon Partners Securities, LLC and Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, is evaluating the Proposal. There can be no assurance that the Proposal, or any other transaction, will be completed or, if so, as to the terms and conditions of any such transaction. The Company does not intend to disclose developments with respect to this matter until such time as the Special Committee and the Company's board of directors approves a transaction or the Special Committee otherwise deems further disclosure appropriate, except as required by law or other regulatory requirements.

9/27 WAKE-UP CALL: Trump Deals Called Fraud

A New York judge ruled Donald Trump committed fraud in valuing his real-estate empire's assets. The judge ordered the cancellation of legal certificates that have allowed the Trumps to do business in New York. The ruling sided with state Attorney General Letitia James, a Democrat, on part of her civil-fraud case against the former president ahead of a trial that is set to begin next week. Trump has denied the allegations and attacked the case as politically motivated. A lawyer for Trump didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

If not successfully appealed, the decision will revoke the Trump Organization’s “business certificates,” preventing the 77-year-old from conducting business in the Empire State until the revocation is rescinded. “The decision today is a final decision that fraud is proven, The judge made this decision on the basis of Trump’s own documents. The evidence is Trump’s own documentation,” Andrew P. Napolitano, former New Jersey Superior Court judge, told The Post. “These are indisputable facts — the case is based entirely on the documents his lenders and his insurance companies produced.”

➤HUNTER BIDEN SUES RUDY GIULIANI: Hunter Biden filed a civil lawsuit Tuesday against Rudy Giuliani and his former attorney, claiming they caused “total annihilation” of his digital privacy and violated federal and state computer privacy laws through their alleged efforts to hack his devices. In the lawsuit filed in federal court in California, Hunter Biden accuses Giuliani and Robert Costello of spending years “hacking into, tampering with, manipulating, copying, disseminating, and generally obsessing over data that they were given that was taken or stolen from” his devices.

🍁CANADA HOUSE SPEAKER RESIGNS: The speaker of Canada’s House of Commons, Anthony Rota, resigned on Tuesday amid a spiraling scandal over his having led Parliament in a standing ovation Friday for a 98-year-old Ukrainian immigrant who turns out to have fought in a Nazi unit during World War II. Since the Forward reported Sunday morning on the background of the 98-year-old veteran, Yaroslav Hunka, Jewish groups and Canadian lawmakers have condemned the ovation, and the Polish minister of education said he had “taken steps” toward an extradition of Hunka for any potential atrocities committed against Poles and Jews during the war.

➤WRITERS HEADED BACK TO WORK: The Hollywood screenwriters' strike, one of two strikes that have stalled movie and TV productions for nearly five months, will officially end Wednesday. The Writers Guild of America board unanimously voted Tuesday to affirm the strike-ending deal, announced Sunday, with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers, the group that represents studios, streaming services and production companies in negotiations. "Today, our Negotiating Committee, WGAW Board, and WGAE Council all voted unanimously to recommend the agreement," the Writers Guild West announced on X, formerly Twitter. "The strike ends at 12:01 am." The agreed-upon three-year contract extension will go to the full WGA membership for a ratification vote. But the leadership board lifted the restraining order to allow writers to work during the ratification process. The members will vote between Oct. 2 and 9.

TV Ratings: The Taylor Swift Effect Captured Viewers

After weeks of speculation about a connection between Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift, who broke up with the actor Joe Alwyn this year, she attended Kelce’s game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., on Sunday, watching from a luxury suite with his mother as the Chiefs trounced the Chicago Bears. Fox cameras panned to Swift’s reaction nearly every time Kelce touched the ball. The singer’s devoted swarm of fans also tuned in, with several posting on social media that they were watching football for the first time.

Swift, wearing a red-and-white outfit that matched Kansas City’s colors, was then seen leaving the stadium with Kelce.

The singer's presence at the Kansas City Chiefs' Week 3 home win against the Chicago Bears reportedly led to a significant boost in viewership, as well as merchandise sales and the social media presence of tight end Travis Kelce amid speculation of a potential relationship between the two.

Week 3’s national @NFLonFOX window also ranked first among F12-17, F18-34, F18-49 and F2+ demos this week.

A spokesperson for the sports apparel website Fanatics told the Associated Press that Kelce's jersey sales saw "a nearly 400% spike" since Swift appeared as his guest in an Arrowhead Stadium luxury box alongside his mother, Donna Kelce, on Sunday (September 24). 

Despite Kelce’s relative fame in the sports world, becoming part of the frenzied conversation around Swift’s every move is another ballgame. Kelce now has 3.2 million followers on Instagram. Swift has 273 million.

FCC To Reset Its Net Neutrality Crusade

FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel said she plans to reinstate net neutrality oversight of broadband providers that was rescinded under former president Donald Trump.

Bloomberg reports Rosenworcel announced the effort Tuesday at the National Press Club, confirming an earlier Bloomberg report and kicking off a renewed fight over regulation. She is proposing the FCC take the first steps to commit to rules that would treat broadband internet as an essential service, putting it on par with water, power and phone service.

The proposal largely mirrors original rules adopted in 2015 under then-President Barack Obama and adds a clause on national security to close a loophole that allows foreign adversaries to access US broadband services.

NYC Radio: NY Public Radio Plans 12 Percent RIF

New York Public Radio, the parent organization of the WNYC news station, said on Tuesday that it was planning to cut its work force by about 12 percent.

The NY Times reports LaFontaine Oliver, New York Public Radio’s president and chief executive, said in a memo to employees that a “free fall in the advertising market” had led to the decision to cut staff.

“I know this news is hard to hear, and knowing macroeconomic factors have led to this moment doesn’t soften the blow when national trends land on your own doorstep,” Mr. Oliver said.

New York Public Radio, a nonprofit, operates WNYC, the classical music station WQXR and the Gothamist local news site. It has about 340 full-time and part-time employees. Staff members affected by the job cuts will be notified next week; Mr. Oliver didn’t say in his memo which areas of the organization would be hardest hit, but said the organization would preserve its journalism and music efforts. New York Public Radio is also planning to eliminate a majority of open positions, Mr. Oliver said in his memo.

Many public radio stations have had to adjust to changes in how audiences listen to their programming, with many people shifting to newer platforms, such as Spotify. The Covid-19 pandemic sped up some of those changes as fewer people commuted to work, a segment that had long been a staple of traditional listenership.

New York Public Radio is among the vanguard of public radio stations that have sought to embrace changing listener behaviors. Its WNYC Studios arm produces “Radiolab,” a popular podcast that explores themes of curiosity and the natural world, and “The New Yorker Radio Hour,” a podcast version of the magazine.

Radio History: September 27

William Conrad
➦In 1920
...William Conrad born (Died from heart failure at age 73. – February 11, 1994). His  career spanned five decades in radio, film, and television, peaking in popularity when he starred in the detective series Cannon (1971–1976).

Conrad estimated that he played more than 7,500 roles during his radio career.

Most prominently, Conrad's deep, resonant voice was heard in the role of Marshal Matt Dillon on CBS Radio's gritty Western series Gunsmoke (April 26, 1952 – June 18, 1961). The producers originally rejected him for the part because of his ubiquitous presence on so many radio dramas and the familiarity of his voice, but his impressive audition could not be dismissed, and he became the obvious choice for the role. Conrad voiced Dillon for the show's nine-year run, and he wrote the June 1953 episode "Sundown." When Gunsmoke was adapted for television in 1955, executives at CBS did not cast Conrad or his radio costars despite a campaign to get them to change their minds.

In January 1956, Conrad was the announcer on the debut broadcast of The CBS Radio Workshop.

➦In 1933..."Waltz Time" debuted . It remained on the NBC Radio network until 1948. The show features Abe Lyman (August 4, 1897 – October 23, 1957) and his band, which was popular from the 1920s to the 1940s. He made recordings, appeared in films and provided the music for numerous radio shows, including Your Hit Parade.

➦In 1938...Comedian Bob Hope introduce a new song, "Thanks For The Memory".  It was introduced in the 1938 film The Big Broadcast of 1938 by Bob Hope and Shirley Ross. In the film, Ross and Hope's characters are a divorced couple who encounter each other aboard a ship. Near the film's end, they poignantly sing one of the many versions of this song, recalling the ups and downs of their relationship (then they decide to get back together).

➦In 1985...The Howard Stern Show aired for the last time on 66 WNBC NYC.
