CBS Sports Radio is a sports radio network that debuted with hourly sports news updates on September 4, 2012, and with 24/7 programming on January 2, 2013.[2][3][4]

CBS Sports Radio is owned by ViacomCBS and distributed by Westwood One. Programming on the network features reporters and personalities from CBS Sports, CBS Sports Network, and CBSSports.com.[2] CBS Sports Radio is broadcast throughout the United States on radio affiliates and streamed online.[5][6] From launch until November 17, 2017, it was operated by CBS Radio until its merger with Entercom. Entercom, which later became Audacy, Inc., continued to manage the network under a licensing agreement with CBS.[7] The rights to the CBS logo, but not the name, expired at the end of 2019.[8]

CBS Sports Radio airs on more than 300 stations nationwide. The nominal flagship station of CBS Sports Radio is 660 WFAN and 101.9 WFAN-FM in New York City (although WFAN-AM-FM only carry some brief reports from the network); since WFAS shifted to conservative talk in 2021,[9][10] New York City has had no full-time CBS Sports Radio affiliate. WFAS and WHLD were among numerous Cumulus Media stations that had been part of the network's core affiliates but flipped to conservative talk.[11] Audacy also distanced itself from the network when it shifted focus to its own in-house BetQL network, which focuses more on gambling, in 2021.[12]
