Amendolara, whose affable if increasingly contrarian style and catchphrases such as "the mothership has connected, welcome aboard" won him a loyal young audience, will host his program from 2-6 a.m.
It will still be heard in that new time slot on The Sports Hub, which is owned by CBS Radio.
Amendolara joins upstart CBS Sports Radio's roster of hosts, which includes Jim Rome, Doug Gottlieb, John Feinstein, and Scott Ferrall.
I'll have more next week on how The Sports Hub may plan to replace him.
