Gottlieb's daily radio show will debut Jan. 2 with the launch of the CBS Sports Radio Network, and will air 2 to 5 p.m. weekdays. He also will be an analyst on about 20 college basketball games this season for the CBS Sports Network and CBS — including calling two rounds of the NCAA men's tournament — and also handle weekend studio work for CBS.
After living in a small, quaint Connecticut town near ESPN studios, the move to Southern California has been a major adjustment for Gottlieb, his wife, Angie, and their children, 6-year-old twin daughters Harper and Grace and 3-year-old son Hayes.
“This is a complete 180 from everything our life was over the last nine years,” Gottlieb said. “Even in the schools, our kids went from traditional to year-round schools. We really grew attached to our hometown. It hasn't been easy, but it's made easier that it's been 80 degrees everyday.”
