ESPN RADIO Sports WEPN-A (1050 ESPN)/NEW YORK host JARED MAX and ENTERCOM Sports WEEI-A-F/BOSTON commentator and BOSTON HERALD columnist STEVE BUCKLEY are among the honorees in OUT magazine's OUT 100 list of the most inspiring people to the gay community in 2011.
The magazine wrote, "When CHARLES BARKLEY made a giant wave after voicing his support for gay marriage and his disdain for homophobia in the sports world, ESPN RADIO veteran sportscaster JARED MAX took the opportunity to make a ripple himself when he came out on-air. BOSTON HERALD sports columnist STEVE BUCKLEY also made the decision to come out in his column (it was his mother’s idea, he says) and followed that up by saying that he made the biggest mistake of his life in not doing it sooner."
