In a unique move, ABC Sports WEPN-A (1050 ESPN RADIO)/NEW YORK PD MIKE THOMPSON has hired NEW YORK POST reporter ANDREW MARCHAND as Managing Editor. MARCHAND, who starts with the station on MARCH 5, will contribute both on-air and online reports. He was best known for covering sports media stories for the paper.
"We are greatly expanding our local news gathering efforts and ANDREW’s experience, credibility and tireless work ethic will lead the way," says THOMPSON. "He is representative of our typical listener in that he consumes sports through many forms of new and traditional media. In turn, he will contribute on-air reports, online columns, blogs, podcasts and more, connecting with contemporary sports fans across the board."
MARCHAND said, "I have really enjoyed my nine years at THE POST, and I am very thankful for all of the opportunities I was given. When MIKE presented me with this new position, the chance to work in another creative forum was one I could not pass up. I am hopeful that the skills that I honed at THE POST transfer well on the air and online."
