“I can’t thank you enough for the kind words, conversation, understanding, and support these last several weeks,” Rahimi tweeted Wednesday. “It means so much. Let’s have some fun today!”

Her debut comes a day after Score parent Entercom Communications on Tuesday dumped afternoon co-host Dan McNeil in response to what Entercom’s regional president called a “degrading and humiliating” tweet about what ESPN sideline reporter Maria Taylor wore on “Monday Night Football.”

“Obviously, we know the timing is certainly weird and I can understand people wondering about the odd timing — total coincidence — but here we are and it’s going to be a hell of a lot of fun,” Bernstein said early in Wednesday’s show with Rahimi.
