This fall, Dusty Dvoracek and Danny Kanell (seen left and right, respectively, above) will do double duty on SiriusXM. Following Pat McAfee’s “amicable” exit from Mad Dog Sports Radio earlier this week, that channel named Kanell and Dvoracek to fill McAfee’s slot from noon to 3 p.m. EST. But they will also continue their morning show (7-9am EST) on SiriusXM’s ESPNU Radio channel. Barrett Sports Media has more about it:
Dog Days with Dusty Dvoracek and Danny Kanell will debut in the 12:00-3:00 p.m. timeslot on Mad Dog Sports Radio on Tuesday, September 6.
The pair made the announcement on their current morning show. Sources confirm to BSM that Dusty and Danny will continue to air from 7am to 9am on ESPNU Radio in addition to their new show on Mad Dog Sports Radio. Dusty and Danny started in August last year after Dvoracek left The Sports Animal.
Double duty is nothing new for Kanell. He has worked with SiriusXM since September 2017, initially hosting an afternoon radio show (1-4 p.m. EST, the same slot as his former ESPN radio show with Ryen Russillo) with the new voice of the Las Vegas Raiders, Jason Horowitz. He then hosted the afternoon show dog day sports on Mad Dog Sports Radio with Steve Torre for several years, this only going away in September 2020 when Mad Dog Sports Radio introduces McAfee for this place. And he was also working with ESPNU Radio throughout that period, usually on the morning show, and was one of the featured figures when that channel launched in September 2017. Meanwhile, Dvoracek joined Kanell for this ESPNU Radio morning show last summer after leaving 98.1 FM The Sports Animal in Oklahoma City.
This is in addition to numerous gigs in the sports media for Dvoracek and Kanell. In particular, Dvoracek works as an analyst on ESPN’s college football coverage, usually with Dave Pasch and Tom Luginbill. Kanell works as a studio analyst for CBS Sports Network college football coverage. And they will now work together more with a second daily SXM radio show.
