December 8, 2006 at 2:53 PM (PT)
CBS Sports WFAN-A/NEW YORK ups MONDAY and FRIDAY early morning host EVAN ROBERTS to co-host for middays 10a-1p alongside JOE BENIGNO. ROBERTS first appeared on the station as a 10-year-old doing sports updates on DON IMUS' syndicated morning show, moving on to shows at CBS Sports WJFK-A (ESPN 1300)/BALTIMORE and on SIRIUS' MAXIM CHANNEL before being named to the 1-5:30a slot twice a week a year ago.
"We’re looking forward to having EVAN partner with JOE and the lively discussions they will bring to the listeners," VP/Programming & Ops. Dir. MARK CHERNOFF said. "We’ll now have two very NEW YORK and very passionate sports fans going at it with each other, along with some of the biggest names in sports, and of course our loyal callers."
