CBS Sports Radio host, Jim Rome is partnering with former NFL defensive lineman and Super Bowl Champion Trevor Pryce for a podcast.

The show, titled RPO, standing for Rome, Pryce, Opinion, a play on the football lingo Run, Pass, Option, will join the Westwood One Podcast Network.  RPO will feature opinionated takes from the iconic sports radio host and former NFL All-Pro as they comment on the hottest topics from around the league.

“I have always worked alone but when the opportunity to work with a two-time Super Bowl winner and a presence like Trevor Pryce presented itself, I jumped,” said Rome. “He’s hungry, fearless, and has takes for days. This one is a no-brainer and I know it’s going to deliver.”

RPO will be a 20-week series, with a new podcast being released every Monday during the NFL season through the Super Bowl.  The first episode of RPO launched Monday, September 10.

“Jim and Trevor will engage listeners with their authentic voices and insights beyond the games during this NFL season,” said Westwood One President and EVP of Marketing for Cumulus Suzanne Grimes. “Jim Rome is a king of Sports Talk and one of the leading opinion-makers of his generation. His legions of passionate fans, known as ‘clones,’ know and respect that he doesn’t hold back.”
