ESPN Sports WEPN-A (1050 ESPN)/NEW YORK adjusts its lineup to fill in the gap left by the end of ESPN RADIO's STEPHEN A. SMITH show MONDAY, adding an extra hour to MICHAEL KAY's afternoon show and adding a second hour to the station's carriage of the network's MIKE TIRICO show. TIRICO will air 1-3p and KAY wil be on 3-7p. SMITH had aired 2-4p on the station.
"We have seen solid, steady ratings growth in MICHAEL's show across numerous ratings books," said PD AARON SPIELBERG, "and this expansion is a reflection of great teamwork. MICHAEL and his entire team —- co-host DON LA GRECA, Creative Services Director JOEY SALVIA and Sr. Coordinating Producer RYAN HURLEY -— produce a seamless, topical sports talk show that’s second-to-none."
SPIELBERG added, "I’m also delighted to expand MIKE TIRICO's broadcast. MIKE has tremendous integrity and this two-hour program will tackle the day’s biggest stories from MIKE's journalist point-of-view."
