Media Notes

CBS Sports Chair Sean McManus said the net is "having good discussions" with Tony Romo about a contract extension. Appearing Tuesday on SiriusXM's "Mad Dog Sports Radio," McManus said of Romo, "He's got a year to go on his contract. He's been terrific. He's done a great job for us (and) part of his success is because we put such a great team around him, including Jim Nantz. I think Tony wants to stay at CBS. It's a chance to do Super Bowls. ... I don't see any issue with renewing our contract with Tony in a very timely manner" ("Mad Dog Sports Radio," SiriusXM, 5/14).

HOUSE HUNTER: Darren Woodson after 14 years with ESPN signed off this week to work full-time in the Dallas commercial real-estate market, "becoming a partner at Frisco-based property brokerage firm ESRP, where he'll be working next door" to the Cowboys' HQ at The Star. Woodson said that the timing was "right from him to leave his gig at ESPN." He said, "It was a grind. It wore me down through the years and was very time-consuming. Now I will get my weekends back" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/16).

FRIENDLY COMPETITION: Philadelphia-based WPEN-FM has "launched a new evening show called 'The Fanatic Baseball Show,' hosted by midday producer Andrew Salciunas." The show "premiered Tuesday and will air Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday nights" from 6:00-7:00pm ET throughout the MLB season. However, Salciunas "faces an uphill battle," considering rival WIP-FM airs Phillies games and "offers its own pregame show that features interviews with coaches, players, and members of the broadcast team" (PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, 5/16).
