BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Paul Finebaum will leave Birmingham to begin hosting a radio and television show in Charlotte, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

In Charlotte, Finebaum will be part of a package that includes a radio program on ESPN networks, 100 televised appearances annually on ESPN and a TV simulcast of his radio show on the ESPN-owned SEC Network that is launching in August 2014, the WSJ reported. His radio show will begin airing Aug. 1, according to the WSJ.

"It would be the understatement of my life to say I wasn't thrilled," Finebaum said in the WSJ report. "It is incredibly exciting to be part of a new adventure, particularly one that involves the premiere brand in sports along with the pre-eminent conference in sports."
