NYC Radio: MSG Net To Simulcast Hahn & Humpty Show

MSG Networks announced Wednesday that ESPN Radio’s popular program “Hahn & Humpty” will join MSG’s weeknight summer programing lineup.

Every Monday through Thursday, from Monday, May 23 through September 8 MSG Network’s Knicks studio analyst Alan Hahn and former Islanders goalie Rick DiPietro will give MSG viewers a look inside their studio with a one-hour highlight show, featuring the duo’s unique New York sports commentary and analysis from 7-8:00 p.m.

“Hahn & Humpty is broadcast weekdays on WEPN ESPN98.7 FM from 12-3:00 p.m. and the MSG telecast will feature highlights from the day’s show. In addition to being telecast on MSG, “Hahn & Humpty” will also be available on “MSG GO.”

“Rick and I have often said – ‘If only people could see the fun we have in the studio while doing the radio show’ – so the telecast gives fans that exclusive opportunity,” said Hahn. “It's been great being part of the MSG Networks family and I am excited to continue that relationship with the ‘Hahn & Humpty’ Show.”

“After 10 years of reading what Alan thought about sports in the newspaper, I enjoy debating him on the show, face-to-face, every day,” DiPietro said. “It's always been our goal to give our listeners an amazing sports talk radio experience and I think the telecast will add another dimension to that.”

“MSG Networks is excited to bring fans inside the studio for the popular ‘Hahn & Humpty’ radio show,” said Andrea Greenberg, president and chief executive officer, MSG Networks. “Alan and Rick are already members of the MSG Networks family, and to have them share their unique perspective on New York sports on a daily basis is a win for our viewers as well as new fans who will get a peek behind-the-scenes.”

“98.7 ESPN Radio is excited to work with MSG Networks to bring ‘Hahn & Humpty’ to a new audience,” said Tim McCarthy, SR VP /GM, ESPN Radio. “In a very short period of time, Alan and Rick have become a very popular duo with NY fans, and this collaboration is a natural progression to expand their brand and bring more attention to a show that ESPN radio is very proud of.”
