Fired by ESPN in November, longtime Sunday Night Baseball announcer and Hall of Fame second baseman Joe Morgan will soon launch his own syndicated weekday afternoon radio show, according to Media Bistro.
The Joe Morgan Show will begin August 22 with a pre-promoted guest list that includes Johnny Bench, Sandy Koufax, Willie Mays, Bob Gibson, and Hank Aaron.
USA Sports, which will syndicate the show, issued a press release that includes a few quotes from Morgan:
While I’m best known for baseball, I’ve always had a love of all sports. I’m fortunate that my career has allowed me to meet some of the most amazing people, and I have heard so many remarkable stories. With my new show, I am looking forward to sharing these stories, as well as speaking with today’s sports personalities and newsmakers.
Morgan, who’ll turn 68 years old less than a month after the show’s premiere, will be on the air just in time to give his highly anticipated thoughts on the Moneyball movie and how it’s ruining the world.
