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 operated by CBS Radio and CBS Sports, 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]

CBS Sports Radio airs on more than 300 stations nationwide. The flagship station of CBS Sports Radio is WFAN in New York City (although WFAN airs only carries some brief reports from the network with WFAS in nearby White Plains, New York serving as the network's fulltime outlet). In Los Angeles, CBS Sports Radio had been carried by KCBS-FM's HD2 channel but moved to KFWB on August 25, 2014. This arrangement was discontinued on March 1, 2016 when the station was purchased, and the format was changed.
