ESPN New York Radio Host Reveals He's Gay

ESPN New York 1050 host Jared Max revealed Thursday that he’s gay.

“Are we ready to have our sports information delivered by someone who’s gay? Well, you know what, we are gonna find out,” Max said. “Because for the last 16 years I’ve been living a free life among my close friends and family, and I’ve hidden behind what is a gargantuan-size secret here in the sports world. I am gay.”

The 37-year-old is the host of Maxed Out In The Morning. Max admitted to suffering through depression and suicidal thoughts while keeping his sexuality a secret.

“I don’t share this news with you today to get a reaction or to make news, of being a New York sportscaster working on an all-sports radio station,” Max said. “I do this today because it seems to me there’s never been a better time.”
