On ESPN Radio Michael Kay gets off on non sports tangents too frequently-commenter
- 1/28/12, "Re: Topic of ESPN radio getting an FM signal in Hartford, CT."
Comment by NY Radio Message Board Chairman Allan Sniffen credits ESPN 1050AM with a fair amount of local programming and adds a thought on Michael Kay and recent editions of Mike Lupica's show (previously praised):
- "You're not giving ESPN enough credit in New York.
The station has a fair amount of local programming at this point. The only major daypart that is not local is morning drive and, surpisingly, this doesn't seem to be a big problem. Mike and Mike actually do well in New York.
I do agree that Kay gets off on non sports tangents too frequently. Recently, so has Lupica. They do need to focus particularly against Francesa.That said, the station needs an FM signal more than any other single thing, including more local programming."
