Mike Lupica Joins 1050 ESPN as Part of Weekday Changes

Award-winning Daily News columnist Mike Lupica is taking another stab at radio. He’ll host a show weekdays from 2 to 3 p.m. on 1050 ESPN/WEPN next month. Lupica’s last radio hosting stint was on WFAN 18 years ago.

Our sister site SportsNewser outlines the various adjustments coming to the 1050.

The shake-up means no daytime work for Jodi McDonald and Brandon Tierney. McDonald will be headed to weekend mornings.

You’ll recall last month Jared Max left WCBS-AM for 1050. He was scheduled to start this week. Revving up listeners for the Mike and Mike in the Morning show, Max hosts the 5 to 6 a.m. hour before handling the local updates.
