In this capacity, Craig will be responsible for all aspects of ESPN Radio programming and production, including oversight of Mike & Mike, The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz, Russillo & Kanell, and nighttime and weekend programming. Craig transitioned out of his current role at 98.7 FM earlier this month and is now based at ESPN’s headquarters in Bristol, Conn., reporting to David Roberts, vice president, ESPN Network Content.
Ryan Hurley, formerly the Assistant Program Director at 98.7FM, has been promoted to Program Director and will oversee all aspects of programming at the station.
Jonathan Winthrop, who has previously served as a producer at 98.7FM will take on a leadership role as the new Assistant Program Director and will continue to produce The Stephen A. Smith Show.
“Justin brings to this role a wide range of experience and winning results,” said Roberts. “He clearly understands the value of how the local and national networks can collectively create an even stronger culture of success. Bottom line, Justin Craig is uniquely prepared for this extremely important leadership role. He's a winner.”
Craig joined ESPN in January 1998 as a part-time overnight board operator, before becoming one of the original producers of Mike & Mike in 2000. He graduated from St. Bonaventure University in 1997 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communication.
Hurley, a graduate of Hofstra University, has been with ESPN New York since 2004 and served as a producer for The Michael Kay Show for 11 years, first as a lead producer, then as the executive producer. In 2015, he was named the Assistant Program Director at 98.7FM and played a vital role in developing programming at the station. He has also produced Jets, Knicks and Rangers games for the station.
