ESPN Sports WEPN-A (1050 ESPN)/NEW YORK will add ESPN RADIO's COLIN COWHERD for noon-2p weekdays, beginning MARCH 16. COWHERD will broadcast his debut WEPN show live from GALLAGHER'S steakhouse in MAHNATTAN.
MAX KELLERMAN's local show, presently 10a-1p, will now run 10a-noon, and the station will drop the hour of ESPN RADIO's MIKE TIRICO and SCOTT VAN PELT it currently airs 1-2p.
"I’m pumped to join 1050's lineup just prior to the start of the new baseball season," said COWHERD. "NEW YORK is at the center of the baseball world and that will be the focus of much of these two hours. New Yorkers can spot a phony a mile away. I do my homework and will reward listeners that pay attention."
PD AARON SPIELBERG said, "We are delighted to welcome COLIN to our station. From morning until night, 1050 ESPN now features an unmatched lineup of talent and guests. NEW YORK sports fans know to turn to us for breaking sports news and analysis, and Colin’s strong opinions will resonate with our listeners."
