ESPN New York 98.7FM has reached multiyear contract extensions with local radio icons Michael Kay and Don La Greca to continue as host and co-host of the weekday afternoon drive show The Michael Kay Show (3-7 p.m.). They will continue to work alongside Peter Rosenberg. Kay, who will be inducted into the New York State Broadcasters Association’s Hall of Fame this October, has been an original member of ESPN New York’s talent lineup since 2001 and has hosted the station’s afternoon drive show since then. La Greca was the first voice listeners heard when ESPN New York launched in 2001 and has been a part of The Michael Kay Show since 2002.
“There isn’t another place I would want to do radio than at ESPN,” said Kay. “I love the people I work with and the people I work for. I also think we do the best, most entertaining radio show in the country and I want to continue to make our listeners laugh and learn every day.”
La Greca added, “As the first voice of this station, I could not be prouder to sign a contract that will take me through two decades with the ESPN family.”
“Michael and Don have been the cornerstone of the station since our inception. Their commitment and passion are evidenced in their strong ratings and listener loyalty,” commented Tim McCarthy, senior vice president of ESPN Radio Group.
