ESPN Sports WEPN-A (1050 ESPN)/NEW YORK is revamping its lineup and bringing NEW YORK DAILY NEWS columnist MIKE LUPICA aboard to host 2-3p (ET), effective MAY 9th.
LUPICA's arrival is accompanied by other changes, including the move of RYAN RUOCCO and ROBIN LUNDBERG from 10-11a to noon-2p, with COLIN COWHERD's ESPN RADIO show now airing on the station 10a-noon (moving back from 11a-1p). The station, in its release, said that present 1-3p hosts, JODY MACDONALD and BRANDON TIERNEY, will move to weekend work, but TIERNEY said in a tweet that he will not be hosting on weekends after the weekday show ends on MAY 6th. As previously announced, former crosstown CBS RADIO News WCBS-A sports anchor JARED MAX is taking over the 5-6a slot as well, starting APRIL 18th.
"We are extremely excited to welcome MIKE LUPICA to the 1050 ESPN NEW YORK family, as our new line-up showcases the most recognizable, accomplished and opinionated newsmakers in the New York market," said GM DAVID ROBERTS. "This unique blend of locally-grown hosts and top-performing ESPN national personalities will deliver compelling content to listeners throughout the day."
