Super Bowl champion and former New York Giant Chris Canty has joined ESPN New York 98.7FM’s Hahn & Humpty (noon – 3 p.m. ET), hosted by Alan Hahn and Rick DiPietro, as the newest member of the weekday program. He will also remain as a host for NY’s Game Day on Sundays (8 – 11:30 a.m.). Canty has been a guest contributor on various 98.7FM shows since ending his playing career last year.
“I couldn’t be more excited to join the 98.7 ESPN team,” said Canty. “After spending my ‘first career’ on the field, I’m looking forward to sharing my experience and perspectives with New York sports fans.”
Tim McCarthy, senior vice president & general manager ESPN New York, added: “Adding Chris — a former New York Giant and Super Bowl Champion who grew up in the Bronx — is a great addition to our lineup. Chris brings tremendous football credibility to the station.”
Canty, a defensive end, was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys in 2005 and signed with the Giants in 2009, playing four seasons in New York. He was a member of the 2011 Super Bowl XLVI-winning Giants and most recently played for the Baltimore Ravens from 2013 – 2015. In college, Canty starred at Virginia, twice earning second-team All-ACC team honors.
