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.
