Expect To See A Lot More Of Jim Rome, As CBS Plans To Use Him For Nearly All The Sports They Broadcast

Details of Jim Rome's future with CBS emerged today when new boss Sean McManus showed up on Rome's radio show to discuss all the ways the Tiffany Network plans to exploit their acquisition.

You can listen to the full conversation above, but the breakdown of places you could be seeing Jim Rome soon include:

* NFL pregame show The NFL Today
* Showtime's Inside The NFL
* March Madness, including the Final Four
* U.S. Open tennis coverage
* Showtime boxing matches


Those are all in addition to his new CBS Sports Network daily show, simply titled Rome.

Jim Rome's also scheduled to host a new entertainment & sports program on Showtime that sounds suspiciously like Joe Buck's disaster on HBO.

Rome's radio show appears to be going nowhere, and he's shown hesitance to leave southern California (where's he's lived most of his life). It'll be interesting to see how CBS handles his self-imposed anchor.
