Doug Gottlieb Career
The first episode of The Doug Gottlieb Show sparked a dramatic reshuffling of the ESPN Radio lineup, as SportsNation was removed completely from the airwaves, and The Brian Kenny Show was developed to fill the latter time, from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m.
ESPN requested Gottlieb to assist with the launch of ESPNU from Charlotte. The still-emerging channel was a company priority, and Gottlieb took the role and stayed in Charlotte for a month taking into account his age, familiarity with the presenter, Mike Hall, and the launch date of March 3.
Due to the importance of his duties for ESPN’s college basketball coverage, Andy Gresh served as the show’s primary fill-in host in the evenings; however, once Gresh left ESPN Radio, Jason Smith took over as Gottlieb’s regular stand-in.
Gottlieb made his decision to leave ESPN and join CBS officially on July 31, 2012. He worked as a studio and in-game commentator for CBS Sports’ coverage of college basketball’s regular season as well as for the NCAA basketball tournament’s combined coverage with Turner Sports.
Gottlieb began appearing on CBS Radio stations across the United States in the CBS Sports Minute in 2013. CBS made the decision to switch the Doug Gottlieb Show to a TV simulcast format in 2014. The show has been moved to Fox Sports Radio.
