ESPN Sports KSPN-A (710 ESPN)/LOS ANGELES PD LARRY GIFFORD is exiting the station, effective SEPTEMBER 13th. GIFFORD, who worked at FOX SPORTS RADIO, WBNS-A/COLUMBUS, OH, WWDB/PHILADELPHIA, and the ESPN RADIO network before taking the KSPN position, is going into business for himself, consulting radio stations, groups, and individuals.
He and wife REBECCA are also opening the BODY OF LIGHT HEALING ARTS healing center in LOS ANGELES; both GIFFORDs are certified practitioners of energetic medicine and she is a licensed massage therapist.
GIFFORD, who was at the helm of KSPN during a period of growth that included the addition of LAKERS basketball and an arrangement with crosstown LOS ANGELES ANGELS-owned KLAA-A (AM830) that includes programming ESPN RADIO midday shows on KLAA and selected ANGELS games on KSPN, said, “There are many remarkable people at ESPN who I will miss working with on a daily basis, but the next phase of life for my family and me is calling and I feel now is the time to move on."
