"THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW" LAUNCHES ON CBS SPORTS NETWORK, EXPANDING FOOTBALL COVERAGE ON SUNDAY MORNINGS

NFL Veteran Bart Scott, Former Oakland Raiders Executive Amy Trask and CBS Sports Radio's Brandon Tierney Join Host Adam Schein on "TOPS" Beginning Sunday, Sept. 8

"The NFL Today" and "The NFL on CBS" Announce Team to Appear Regularly

Continuing its aggressive expansion of programming around CBS Sports' marquee properties, CBS Sports Network launches THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW (TOPS), a new weekly Sunday football studio program debuting Sunday, Sept. 8 (9:00 AM-1:00 PM, ET). The announcement was made today by Sean McManus, Chairman, CBS Sports, and Executive Producer, THE NFL ON CBS, and David Berson, President, CBS Sports.

THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW breaks from the familiar pregame show format, presenting a unique fan-focused take on all the week's NFL and college action, headlines and hot-button issues, giving viewers all the latest information as it happens. TOPS will be hosted by Adam Schein along with 11-year NFL veteran Bart Scott, long-time Oakland Raiders executive Amy Trask, CBS Sports Radio's Brandon Tierney, CBSSports.com fantasy analyst Nathan Zegura and LEAD OFF's Allie LaForce reporting.

The show also will incorporate various forms of social media interaction, engaging the TOPS team with its viewers. The last hour of the show will be centered on Fantasy Football helping fans set their line-ups each week. Continuing its focus on all things football, TOPS will take a look back at all the college football games and performances that fans are still talking about from the previous day and look forward to the week ahead.

Regular contributors to THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW include analysts from THE NFL TODAY: Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe and Bill Cowher, as well as host James Brown and Insider Jason La Canfora. CBS Sports' NFL on CBS announcers will appear regularly from their game sites, including Phil Simms, Dan Fouts, Dan Dierdorf, Rich Gannon, Solomon Wilcots, Steve Tasker and Steve Beuerlein.

"In today's television landscape, there is certainly room for another pregame show if that show offers a unique approach and perspective," said McManus. "THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW will accomplish that, as we combine all the assets of CBS Sports including CBS Sports Radio and CBSSports.com, creating a show focusing on the fans and how they consume football."

THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW is part of CBS Sports Network's expanded studio programming focusing on NFL football. TOPS joins NFL MONDAY QB, which returns for its second season on Monday, Sept. 9 (5:00 PM, ET), with host Adam Schein and analysts Phil Simms, Rich Gannon, Steve Beuerlein and Insider Jason LaCanfora. After Week 1, NFL MONDAY QB airs weekly at 6:30 PM, ET.

Scott joins CBS Sports Network after an 11-year NFL playing career with the Baltimore Ravens (2002-2008) and New York Jets (2009-2012). In 2006, he was a Pro Bowl selection and earned All Pro honors.

Trask spent 26 seasons with the Oakland Raiders working directly for Al Davis. She was named the first female CEO in the NFL in 1997. Under her watch, the Raiders won four Division Championships (1990, 2000, 2001 and 2002) and one AFC Championship (2002).

Tierney serves as co-host of TBD in the AM, CBS Sports Radio's national morning show. He has been a staple on sports talk radio in New York and San Francisco for the last 10 years, most recently at 95.7 The Game in the Bay Area.

Schein, host of TOPS and NFL MONDAY QB, anchors "Schein on Sports," a sports talk radio show on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Radio, and is featured on SportsNet New York's weekday show "Loud Mouths."

Zegura is the Senior Fantasy Football Writer for CBSSports.com and appears regularly on CBSSports.com's FANTASY FOOTBALL TODAY.

LaForce is a co-host of LEAD OFF, CBS Sports Network's weekday late night news and commentary program, and also served as sideline reporter during the 2013 NCAA Tournament. She joined CBS Sports Network in 2012.

Shawn Robbins and Andrew Finger produce THAT OTHER PREGAME SHOW. Tyler Hale is Vice President, Studio Production, CBS Sports and Harold Bryant serves as Executive Producer of CBS Sports. The show will originate from the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City.
