"This spring MLB Network will launch a brand new weekday studio program as Christopher "Mad Dog" Russo, one of the most accomplished sports radio voices in the country, hosts his first TV-based baseball talk show, High Heat with Christopher Russo. Starting on Opening Day, March 31 at 12:00 p.m. ET, Russo will bring his passionate opinions and energetic delivery to MLB Network for a one-hour live program every weekday with discussion on all 30 MLB clubs and interviews with players and club personnel.
Each show will begin with "The Brushback," Russo's opening monologue on the day's biggest headlines, followed by "Coast to Coast," a fast-paced look at the top news around the league with a roster of on-air contributors including MLB Network analysts Al Leiter, Dan Plesac, Harold Reynolds and Bill Ripken, insider Tom Verducci, and national and local beat writers and broadcasters. High Heat will also highlight the voices of the game with "Curtain Calls," where Russo will give his take on the most talked about game calls from the previous day, while viewers will have the chance to give Russo their feedback in a voicemail segment called "Man Bites Dog" to close out every show.
After Opening Day, High Heat will lead off MLB Network's live studio programming schedule at 1:00 p.m. ET unless a game telecast is scheduled at that time, in which case it will air live at 12:00 p.m. ET. High Heat will be produced by MLB Network and simulcast on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM.
Russo joins MLB Network's programming lineup in addition to his roles hosting "Mad Dog Unleashed," his all-sports radio show, weekdays on SiriusXM's Mad Dog Sports Radio, and serving as SiriusXM's Baseball Ambassador on MLB Network Radio.
