ESPN Radio listeners likely will hear plenty about Cincinnati and the Bengals Monday before the Bengals-Patriots "Monday Night Football" game (, ESPN and Channel 12).
"MNF" announcer Mike Tirico will do his national radio show from here 1-3 p.m. Monday. Tirico, one of the original ESPN Radio hosts for its launch in 1992, took over Dan Patrick's afternoon slot last week.
John Seibel also will broadcast his afternoon drive "SportsBash" from Cincinnati. Seibel, born in the Dayton suburb of Englewood, has been with ESPN since 2000.
And speaking of Dan Patrick: He debuts his new syndicated talk show 9 a.m.-noon on Monday as an audio stream on his new website http://www.danpatrick.com/ I haven't heard of any local station picking it up yet.
