CLEAR CHANNEL Sports WUCS (97.9 ESPN)/HARTFORD and WAVZ-A (ESPN 1300)/NEW HAVEN have filled the afternoon 3-7p (ET) slot left vacant with MIKE BOWER's recent departure by hiring former CINCINNATI REDS relief pitcher and ESPN and FOX SPORTS RADIO host ROB DIBBLE to co-host afternoons with PAUL NANOS. DIBBLE, son of the late WALT DIBBLE, longtime News Dir. at WTIC-A/HARTFORD, most recently co-hosted evenings at FOX SPORTS RADIO and served as color commentator for WASHINGTON NATIONALS baseball on the MASN regional cable network in 2007-11.
DIBBLE said, "After years of being in the broadcast industry and working around the country, it was always my dream to follow in my father’s footsteps and broadcast out of the great state where I was born. CONNECTICUT has the most passionate sports fans anywhere and I'm lucky to be a part of it with 97-9 ESPN and ESPN 1300!"
