The MIAMI HERALD's BARRY JACKSON is reporting that a pair of local MIAMI sports hosts are likely to go national with ESPN RADIO.
LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Sports WAXY-A-F (THE TICKET)/MIAMI afternoon host and ESPN2 "HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE" co-host DAN LE BATARD is ticketed for 4-7p (ET) weekdays on ESPN RADIO if a deal is reached; LE BATARD and co-host/producer JON "STUGOTZ" WEINER will do a local-only hour 3-4p before the national show. The new show would replace JONATHAN COACHMAN's "COACH AND COMPANY" in the weekday lineup.
And crosstown BEASLEY Sports WQAM-A host and PD JORGE SEDANO, who is leaving that station at the end of AUGUST, is reportedly taking the slot vacated by MIKE HILL on the evening show alongside incumbent MARK SCHLERETH. HILL recently exited ESPN to join the crew starting up the new cable network FOX SPORTS 1.
