Jared Max Moves to ESPN 1050, But ‘Will Always Remember’ WCBS Send-Off

Jared Max spent 11 years as the morning sports anchor on WCBS-AM. As we reported on Friday, Max gave his final report on 880 before heading up the dial to ESPN 1050 (WEPN) April 18. CBS staffers gave Max a nice ovation for his years of service on the station.

 ”…The surprise of that applause in the newsroom is a moment I will always remember,” Max tells FishbowlNY. “Just as I still get chills thinking of, and reliving a grand slam, which I hit an inning after making three errors on one play, costing us two runs, to win our Little League World Series when I was 12 years old.”

Keeping a pre-dawn wake-up intact, Max has a pair of duties waiting for him at ESPN.

From 5 to 6 a.m., Max will host his own show on 1050. Then, he’ll take over the local anchor updates during Mike and Mike in the Morning from 6 to 10 a.m.

But before embarking on the new journey, Max takes one more look at his glorious past.

‘The last couple of days at WCBS tested my ability to not become a messier version of Mark Messier,” Max says. “The last few hours were surreal. I couldn’t have asked for more. I love those guys.”
