WCBS Sports Director Jared Max Bolts for 1050 ESPN

FishbowlNY has learned that veteran WCBS sports anchor Jared Max has taken a job with Disney’s 1050 ESPN (WEPN). Max, who handled morning sports reports for 880, was first heard on the station March 3, 1999.

Both entertaining and informative, Max was an instant hit. He assumed full-time duties exactly one-year later 0n March 3, 2000. Max has been the morning drive sports anchor ever since.

As the WCBS-AM sports director, Max was front and center at many high-profile events, whether in the New York area at the U.S. Open Tennis Championships, covering the Yankees during a playoff run, or with the Giants at the Super Bowl. But, Max would also be an on-air presence around the world, specifically at the Olympics.
