The Doug Gottlieb Show is a weekday sports talk and debate radio show on CBS Sports Radio, that airs Monday-Friday from 3 pm ET for three hours till 6 pm ET. The show was formerly on ESPN Radio from 2006-2012. Since debuting on November 13, 2006, the host of the program has been hosted by former Oklahoma State Cowboys guard and current ESPN college basketball analyst Doug Gottlieb. Jon Stashower was the SportsCenter anchor for the show in the 8pm-11pm slot until 2008, when he was moved to the afternoon spot allowing anchors Marc Kestecher and Neil Jackson to split the time between 8pm–11pm. He rejoined the show on February 2, 2009 when it was moved to its earlier slot.
The debuting of The Doug Gottlieb Show, caused a major shake up in the ESPN Radio lineup, as SportsNation on ESPN Radio was dropped completely from the airwaves and The Brian Kenny Show was created to take up the later slot, from 8pm-10pm.
Since joining ESPN Radio in September 2003, Gottlieb had co-hosted GameNight along with personalities such as Chuck Wilson, Jeff Rickard, John Seibel and Freddie Coleman. Due to Gottlieb's extensive work for ESPN's college basketball coverage, the primary fill-in host for the program during the evening was Andy Gresh but since Gresh's departure from ESPN Radio, Jason Smith was the regular substitute for Gottlieb.
On July 31, 2012 it was announced that Gottlieb had signed with CBS and would no longer be appearing on ESPN. His last show on ESPN was July 30, and his first with CBS was January 2, 2013.
The design of The Doug Gottlieb Show is very caller friendly with many segments and features containing calls and e-mails from listeners. Gottlieb, with his unique opinions, often includes pop culture and personal commentaries in the show. The move to the earlier slot replaced the GameNight and The Pulse segment called the Scoreboard Update every ten minutes, where the SportsCenter anchor would deliver the most up-to-date scores from games across the country.
- The Pulse of America: In this segment, Gottlieb is joined by sports writers and broadcasters to report on the news from their respective cities.
