ESPN Radio Makes Cowherd, Van Pelt Changes Official
March 8, 2010 at 10:25 AM (PT)
As tipped on ALL ACCESS (NET NEWS 3/4), ESPN RADIO is subtracting an hour from COLIN COWHERD's "THE HERD" and expanding SCOTT VAN PELT's show by an hour, starting APRIL 5th. COWHERD will air 10a-1p ET, with VAN PELT now airing 1-4p.
"Research shows the value of COLIN's radio and TV shows, and his new schedule will give him the best opportunity to grow those franchises," said ESPN AUDIO SVP MO DAVENPORT. "Meanwhile, the chemistry between SCOTT and RYEN (RUSILLO, co-host) is resonating with fans, so it makes sense to expand their show into the traditional mid-afternoon slot. These moves, sandwiched between MIKE & MIKE IN THE MORNING and DOUG GOTTLIEB's afternoon show, strengthen what's already radio's best weekday Sports-Talk programming."
