ESPN Sports WEPN-F (ESPN NEW YORK 98.7FM)/NEW YORK is revamping its lineup starting MONDAY (9/29), expanding NEW YORK DAILY NEWS columnist MIKE LUPICA's show and moving it to 1-3p (ET), adding DAVE ROTHENBERG to co-host a midday hour at noon with RYAN RUOCCO, making ALAN HAHN and former ISLANDERS goalie RICK DIPIETRO the permanent 7-10p weeknight hosts, and expanding KNICKS studio host BILL DAUGHTRY's role to double his SATURDAY show to 4 hours (8a-noon) and add SPORTSCENTER update duties noon-3p weekdays.

Two hours of MIKE LUPICA's passion and opinions, additional opportunities for BILL DAUGHTRY, RYAN RUOCCO and DAVE ROTHENBERG, and the new team of ALAN HAHN and RICK DIPIETRO, whose chemistry was evident from day one, reinforce our commitment to serve sport fans."
