While WEPN/ESPN 1050 is hardly declaring victory, the upstart All-Sports station wants it known that there is growth in them thar hills!
The WEPN call letters were born in 2003, but ESPN Radio was heard full-time on 1050 dating back to 2001. Despite the powerhouse name attached to the station, WEPN struggled to find its voice, and an audience to hear that voice.
WEPN was born to challenge rival WFAN and to provide a platform to all things ESPN.
Now nearly a decade after officially purchasing the station, ESPN 1050 is pleased to finally make some headway.
“The station is seeing real positive growth,” Roberts tells FishbowlNY.
