CBS, Tim Brando Parting Ways After 18 Years Together
CBS and longtime sportscaster Tim Brando have parted ways in a move both sides are calling a mutual decision. Brando's radio show, which had been simulcast on CBS Sports Network since the fall of '11, was taken off the air earlier this month and replaced with a simulcast of WFAN-AM's "Boomer and Carton," which runs at the same time. Brando yesterday told his radio listeners that the show would not be returning to CBSSN.
Later in the day, Brando told THE DAILY that he also was leaving CBS Sports. The departure ends an 18-year relationship that has seen him call college basketball, college football and NFL games, in addition to hosting studio shows for the network.
