CBS Sports Radio Issued the following this morning:
CBS SPORTS RADIO has announced the debut of its new morning show, Taz and the Moose, which launches nationwide on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 from 6:00 – 9:00 am ET. The three-hour block of entertaining, energetic, and engaging sports talk will be anchored by professional wrestling world heavyweight champion and popular podcast host Taz (Pete Senerchia) and CBS SPORTS RADIO talent and TV host Marc “The Moose” Malusis. Taz and the Moose replaces Gio and Jones.
“We’re extremely excited for the debut of Taz and the Moose,” said Eric Spitz, Director of Programming for CBS SPORTS RADIO. “As the host of an extremely successful podcast, Taz has done an amazing job of transitioning from a successful career as a professional wrestler into sports broadcasting. Moose has hosted two popular weekend shows on CBS SPORTS RADIO since our launch five years ago. I know he is ready for this opportunity. Taz and the Moose will deliver entertaining and highly-spirited sports talk to our affiliates and listeners. Hopefully, Taz will keep the pile drives, elbow drops, and arm bars to a minimum.”
Pete “Taz” Senerchia is a multiple professional wrestling world heavyweight champion, celebrated TV color commentator, and award-winning podcaster with more than three decades invested in both wrestling and broadcasting. His no-holds barred style, along with his impeccable comic timing and sarcastic wit, have helped to propel the popularity of his live digital streaming program, The Taz Show, which recently hit the 500th episode milestone. A former college football player, Taz has a storied past with WWE, ECW and TNA.
Marc “The Moose” Malusis kicked off his sports broadcasting career at Syracuse University’s WAER-AM and WJPZ-FM. After part-time work at New York’s City’s WFAN Sports Radio, Malusis became the full-time board operator for the station’s wildly-popular Mike and the Mad Dog program. Eventually he was promoted to show producer. From that point, he became an overnight and fill-in host on WFAN and was part of the original schedule on CBS SPORTS RADIO, doing a Saturday morning show with Maggie Gray called Moose & Maggie. In March of 2008, Malusis was hired as a personality for SNY, where he worked as a debater on SportsNite and appeared on DNL, The Wheelhouse, LoudMouths, and BNNY.
