July 24, 2008 at 7:37 AM (PT)
ESPN Sports KSPN-A (710 ESPN)/LOS ANGELES moves afternoon host DAVE DAMESHEK off the air to a daily online exclusive podcast, "DAVE DAMESHEK ON DEMAND." The show will run between 30 minutes and an hour daily, with DAMESHEK accompanied by musical coordinator DICK BANKS.
The station says DAMESHEK's show podcast has often ranked as the top local podcast of all ESPN owned-and-operated stations and is in the top 10 of all ESPN podcasts. Until a permanent replacement is found for DAMESHEK's afternoon shift, night host BRIAN LONG and Senior Reporter DAVE DENHOLM will fill in as afternoon hosts.
"DAVE is a very hard worker who has found a sports talk niche that serves a diverse and dedicated online audience," said PD LARRY GIFFORD. "I look forward to DAVE helping to lead 710 ESPN into the next evolution of sports talk."
