MOVES ON THE MOTHERSHIP: ESPN2's "SportsNation" announced that ESPN NFL analyst Marcellus Wiley will replace Colin Cowherd as the show's co-host alongside Charissa Thompson. Cowherd will focus on his nationally-syndicated ESPN Radio show, "The Herd." Meanwhile, "SportsNation" will relocate from ESPN's Bristol, Conn., campus to the company's L.A. studios (ESPN).
MAN OVERBOARD: In Minneapolis, Paul Walsh reports former NFLer Mike Morris is "off the air at KFAN Radio amid reported layoffs by the station's parent company," Clear Channel. Morris was the host of "The Power Trip," which aired weekdays from 6:00-9:00am CT. He also "co-hosted post-game shows after Vikings broadcasts on the station" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 12/7).
