LOS ANGELES (January 25, 2013) – SHOWTIME will air new episodes of its acclaimed sports talk series JIM ROME ON SHOWTIME beginning on Wednesday, March 13th at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The show, which will tape in front of a live studio audience, will air once a month on Wednesday nights throughout 2013.
Starting in March, SHOWTIME plans to run episodes of “60 MINUTES SPORTS” and “JIM ROME ON SHOWTIME” in the 9 p.m. ET/PT time slot on the first and second Wednesday nights respectively of each month throughout 2013. Currently, “60 MINUTES SPORTS” airs at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Wednesday nights. Season one consisted of six, one-hour weekly episodes that premiered on Wednesday nights, with the final episode airing on December 26.
Hosted by outspoken sports talk broadcaster Jim Rome, the first season of the one-hour series premiered on November 21, 2012, and featured some the biggest names in sports and entertainment including Kobe Bryant, Aaron Rodgers, Mike Tyson, Matthew Perry, Chris Paul, Lil Wayne, James Carville, Mike Krzyzewski, and Arian Foster.
Last year, Rome signed a multi-year deal with CBS to contribute across multiple CBS Corporation platforms. The partnership paved the way for ROME, a half-hour daily show airing on the CBS Sports Network, and The Jim Rome Show broadcast on CBS Sports Radio weekdays at Noon ET.
Previously, Rome served as host of “Jim Rome is Burning” on ESPN, as well as “The Last Word with Jim Rome,” televised nightly on Fox Sports Net. Rome began his radio career at KTMS, Santa Barbara as the “$5 dollar-an-hour” traffic reporter and covered UC Santa Barbara’s sports. He left KTMS for San Diego’s all-sports station, XTRA Sports 690. Rome continues to host a highly-successful daily, live sports radio show from Southern California.
