It’s been a tough week for Jim Rome. First, the CBS sports talk show host had to have his horse euthanized last week after a brief bout with colic. Now he has learned that his television show with Showtime will not be renewed. Rome confirmed the news on Twitter.
Rome still has his weekday radio program on the CBS Sports Radio Network and his television appearances on the NFL Today, but with the Showtime program ending, less than a year after losing his television program on the CBS Sports Network, it does raise the question of how important he remains to CBS’ plans.
It’s too early to tell if possibilities with other television networks exist but as details emerge we’ll keep you posted.
