ESPN Radio Host
Chris Carlin is the co-host of ESPN Radio’s midday show from 12-3 p.m. ET alongside Joe Fortenbaugh. Most recently, he co-hosted ESPN Radio’s afternoon drive window. Prior to his full-time national role, Carlin led his self-titled show on 98.7FM ESPN New York since 2019 and regularly appeared as a guest host across ESPN’s network lineup. The Emmy-winning host’s engaging, opinionated yet humorous style has resonated with audiences throughout his career.
Prior to ESPN New York, Carlin had already been a fixture on the New York sports TV and radio scene for over a decade including hosting at WFAN (2017-19) and hosting New York Mets pre and post-game shows and a debate show called Loudmouths on SNY from 2008-16. In addition, Carlin hosted a TV special in 2014 on SNY, “Scandal in Sayreville,” an investigative look at the bullying scandal in Sayreville, NJ. The story received national attention and the show won a New York Emmy. Early in his career, Carlin also produced Mike and the Mad Dog on WFAN.
He is also the voice for Rutgers football, which he has done since 2004, has spent time as a host at WIP radio in Philadelphia and called games for ESPN Radio.
Carlin graduated from Hobart and William Smith Colleges with a Bachelor of Arts in English language and literature/letters.
