One of Radio Ink’s Best Local Sports Talkers of 2017 is leaving his current job for another. Dan Sileo, who’s been hosting mornings on The Mighty 1090 in San Diego since 2014, is leaving the station for another gig in the market. Sileo tells Radio Ink he’s not ready to announce where he’s going just yet but he will be hosting a Sports Talk show in San Diego.
Here’s the statement Sileo made: “It’s with GREAT sadness that I informed the Mighty 1090 that I will be moving on to a great opportunity. I want to thank the folks at 1090 for SAVING my career. Mike Shephard has been amazing to work for. I love the on-air guys like Scott Kaplan and Darren Smith…amazing lineup….Once again….SD…Sileo is NOT going anywhere…stay tuned.”
Sileo has also worked in Florida at WDAE in Tampa, WQAM in Miami, and 740 The Team in Orlando. Early on his career Sileo worked in San Francisco with KNBR 680 and 1050 and FOX Sports Radio. He played college football at the University of Miami.
