ESPN Radio, WEPN NYC Shuffles Line-Up

Mike Lupica to host daily talk show

Mike Lupica, award-winning Daily News sports columnist and long-time panelist on ESPN's "Sports Reporters," adds another notch to his media belt next month with a daily sports-talk show on WEPN (1050 AM, ESPN Radio).

Lupica's new show, 2-3 p.m. daily on 1050, headlines a reshuffling of the station's lineup. The show makes its debut May 9, according to a story by David Hinckley at

Jared Max, newly arrived from WCBS-AM, will host his own show, 5-6 a.m., then become the local sports voice for the syndicated Mike Greenberg & Mike Golic morning show, 6-10. Max will also do features and special assignments.

Colin Cowherd moves to 10 a.m.-noon, followed by a new noon-2 p.m. show with Ryan Ruocco and Robin Lundberg, who formerly hosted the 5 and 10 a.m. hours.

Lupica at 2 will be followed by Michael Kay, 3-7 p.m. Don LaGreca will be heard on both shows and Kay will also be joined regularly, says WEPN general manager David Roberts, by baseball writer Jack Curry.

Stephen A. Smith will be heard 7-9 p.m., followed by Bill Daughtry, 9 p.m.-midnight. Leaving the daily lineup will be Jody McDonald and Brandon Tierney. Roberts says McDonald will move to Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Roberts says he's excited about having Lupica return to the radio, where he hosted a talk show 18 years ago for WFAN.

"This addition further enables us to present compelling, credible and high-impact programming to the New York sports fan 24/7," says Roberts.
