790 The Ticket/Miami's Dan Le Batard To Host Own Show On ESPN2
May 16, 2011 at 4:12 AM (PT)
MIAMI HERALD columnist and LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Sports WAXY-A (790 THE TICKET)/MIAMI afternoon host DAN LE BATARD is increasing his ESPN television duties with his own show, "DAN LE BATARD IS HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE," to air weekdays on ESPN2 at 4-4:30p (ET) starting in SEPTEMBER.
MEDIABISTRO's SPORTSNEWSER reports that LE BATARD's radio show will be cut back to three hours because of the schedule conflict, and the MIAMI HERALD's BARRY JACKSON reports that LE BATARD said that the show will be taped before his radio show and that the radio show will "probably" air 4-7p, putting the first half-hour in conflict with the TV show.
LE BATARD is a frequent fill-in host on ESPN's "PARDON THE INTERRUPTION." His new show will bump "SPORTSNATION," hosted by ESPN RADIO's COLIN COWHERD with MICHELLE BEADLE, to 5p (ET).
