New York, NY -- CBS Sports Radio, which offers around the clock national sports coverage from a wide range of sports personalities and experienced broadcasters, is gearing up for the 2013 football season with a range of new programs dedicated to the sport. The five new shows, along with the rest of CBS Sports Radio’s programming, can be heard on hundreds of stations nationwide, streaming online at www.cbssportsradio.com and through the Radio.com app for mobile devices.

On Saturdays, CBS Sports Radio anchor Rich Ackerman hosts “Eye on College Football” from 12:00-8:00PM. The show includes reports from all of the top college football games as well as interviews with coaches, players, broadcasters and writers. In addition, the network’s Jody McDonald will join Rich from 6:00-8:00PM every Saturday to break down the competition, and continues with his solo show until 10:00PM.
