Veteran radio host and ESPN sportscaster Jim Rome is leaving the cable channel to join CBS networks.

Rome will work across multiple CBS platforms, starting with a new, half-hour show on CBS Sports Network — called “Rome” — that will kick off on April 3, just in time for the NCAA final four tournament.

And in addition to helping cover football, basketball, and the U.S. Open tennis championship, Rome will launch a sports and pop culture series on Showtime to debut later this fall, CBS added in its announcement.

Even with his new gig, Rome will continue to host his nationally-syndicated radio program, “The Jim Rome Show.”
