Sorry Bro: Sports Through Houser:
Jim Rome is no longer burning national sports on ESPN after nearly two decades of paychecks. He will soon be taking his rants, of clowning athletes and clones, over to the
non-BCS conference game channel
CBS Sports Network (CBSSN). Rome was presented with a multi-year offer to return to the network, but he did not accept it. His final burn?
The Big Lead reports
that Jim Rome's role at CBSSN will be expanded somehow. Could he get the Dan Patrick treatment and have a national radio/television show in works, along with the "Jim Rome is Burning" 30-minute show?
More Skip Bayless on ESPN2? Serenity now.
Jim Rome will have a rant on radio soon to inform all his followers of what is about to go down. Unfortunately, I won't be able to hear that rant because I live in Houston (FIX THIS!).

So Jim Rome is going from ESPN to CBS Sports Network even though the Worldwide Leader had offered him a multi-year extension for Rome Is Burning. According to a source, Rome wanted out at least in part because of comments made by an ESPN executive in Those Guys Have All The Fun, the oral history published last year. More »
With all this business about Jim Rome leaving ESPN today, we figured we should check in with Jim Everett, the Rams, Saints, and Chargers quarterback whom Rome repeatedly called "Chris" on ESPN2 in 1994. Everett charged Rome. The video endures on YouTube. Everett is now a financial professional in California. <a href="http:...
Reports are out that Jim Rome, the ESPN radio and TV personality, is taking his talents to CBS. Frankly, I’ve never been a huge Rome fan (although Frank Caliendo does a nice impression). But while his days at ESPN may be over, we’ll always have this.
The network had offered him a multi-year deal to stay, but Rome turned it down. Rome Is Burning had been on ESPN since 2004, and Rome is said to be getting an "expanded role" at CBS Sports Network. Maybe ESPN can replace him with a show that includes Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless. Oh, wait. [The Big Lead] More »
