WEPN/1050 ESPN is going within the company for a new program director. Justin Craig, program director at WMVP/ESPN 1000 in Chicago, is headed for New York and their sister station.

Craig, who fills the hole left by former program director Aaron Spielberg exiting, will assume his job in mid-October. Scott Masteller had been the interim PD.

“Justin brings 20 years of experience and a proven track record to ESPN New York. [His] creativity and leadership helped ESPN 1000 place No. 1 in the key male 25-54 demographic several times in the Chicago market,” Dave Roberts, 1050 GM, said in a statement.

Craig’s resume extends to ESPN Radio where he was a producer of Mike and Mike in the Morning, and one of the program directors for overnights and weekend programming.
