ESPN RADIO is celebrating its 20th anniversary this week. The network, now part of the expanded ESPN AUDIO division, launched JANUARY 1, 1992 from ESPN's BRISTOL, CT headquarters; it moved into its new digital studios in BRISTOL last JUNE 1st.
"In 20 years, we've gone from airing only weekday, drive-time commentaries on 104 radio stations, to the amazing success of MIKE & MIKE, THE HERD WITH COLIN COWHERD, SCOTT VAN PELT, DOUG GOTTLIEB, and having ESPN RADIO become the most listened sports stream on the planet," said ESPN AUDIO SVP MO DAVENPORT. "Additionally, our local markets give fans the local angle on air and on line. It is a tribute to our listeners and our team, which pushes us forward to greater success in serving the sports fan."
