Ben Roethlisberger won’t continue his weekly radio show

The Ben Roethlisberger radio show is no more.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that the Steelers quarterback will not continue his weekly radio show on 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh.

The Tuesday morning staple had become appointment listening, thanks to Roethlisberger’s habit of saying things that generated headlines, especially when publicly criticizing teammates. In one specific episode last season, Roethlisberger criticized former teammate Antonio Brown for running a pass route incorrectly. That criticism, as Roethlisberger has since admitted, ruined the relationship between Roethlisberger and Brown.

Even though Roethlisberger won’t continue a weekly radio show, he hopes to call the team’s flagship station — WDVE — on a regular basis.

  1. Ah, Ben.
    This is a huge disappointment.
    Two of my favorite weekly appointments were Cam’s post game fashion show and your radio show.
    Oh well, here’s hoping you reconsider.

  2. It’s all AB’s fault……
    Ben broke up & the Diva wigged out & now Bens tucking tail & running scared!!!

  3. The stupid faucet has been shut off. Roethlisberger has never said a word that’s helped him.

  4. Ben always had material with AB around and now he’d really have to work. It’s always easier when there’s a clown around town.

  5. Aside from an O-lineman, I’m still waiting for any teammate to stand up and say what a great guy Big Ben is….still waiting. Anyone??

    The guy’s a great talent. He just loves to hear himself talk. And when he talks he puts his foot in his mouth, alienates him teammates and the fan base. Reminds me of Joe T from the Redskins. Teammates tolerated him because he could play, but no one really liked him.

    There’s nothing wrong with shooting yourself in the foot, but stop reloading the gun. Maybe no radio show is the first step to running out of bullets.

  6. Benji strained a vocal cord and had to be taken off the set on a medical cart. But he did manage to weakly raise one arm and bravely wave at the audience on the way out.

  7. “Reminds me of Joe T from the Redskins. Teammates tolerated him because he could play, but no one really liked him.”
    =============================

    You mean the guy who changed the pronunciation of his name so it would rhyme with Heisman?
    You mean the guy who was always the smartest guy in the room, and insisted on telling you so? (Incidentally, he still does.)

    I have no idea who you mean.

  8. Ben is focused to lead the team to the Super Bowl this year. Glad the radio show is done. Play football and win.

    He’s lost a lot of his material.

    Plenty of material left….Mike Tomlin is still around

  10. That’s fine. I’m sure the Steelers will have a whole new set of excuses to trot out when their 2019 season doesn’t end the way they want.

    I think it would be helpful for you to provide examples of the examples of these excuses you speak of otherwise you are just moving wind….again.

  11. I want to see a “Tom Brady” show; the first episode where he interviews Josh Gordon and Patrick Chung together.
    Tom: So, guys where do you see the ceiling for this years team?
    Josh Gordon: (who then high-fives Chung)…..”Tom, We gonna get High, High, High!”

  12. The second episode of the “Tom Brady Show” would feature an interview with the team owner (Robert Kraft).

    Tom: Bob, according to authorities, you were literally caught with your pants down around your ankles. How do you respond to your critics who have been critical of some of your more embarrassing behavior.

    Kraft: Well Tom, I am not just a team owner, I am also a professional love broker. A “Bob’s Seal of Approval” endorsement sets the standard for the industry; and I take that responsibility very seriously.

  13. So apparently RB James Connor is getting a show instead and DE Stephen Tuitt already has one. Conner hasn’t always been the most talkative player with the media, but after getting voted into the pro bowl last year, he’s trying harder this year. He’s also trying to assume more of a leadership role on the offense. With his background of beating cancer back in college, I wouldn’t count against him.

    Go Steelers!
