Marc Kestecher and Hubie Brown to call ESPN Radio’s 22nd consecutive NBA Finals

ESPN Radio will provide comprehensive coverage of the 2017 NBA Finals, highlighted by Hall of Famer Hubie Brown calling his 16th NBA Finals (TV and radio) – the most for any NBA commentator. He will join play-by-play veteran Marc Kestecher and reporter Marc Stein for each game. Host Kevin Winter and analyst Jon Barry will handle pregame and halftime on-site studio coverage. ESPN Radio will precede each NBA Finals game with a one-hour pregame show beginning at 8 p.m. ET on weekdays and 7 p.m. on Sundays.

In addition, Jalen & Jacoby, hosted by ESPN NBA analyst Jalen Rose and David Jacoby, will air one-hour NBA Finals preview specials at 7 p.m. on each weeknight of the game broadcasts. Freddie and Fitz – hosted by Freddie Coleman and Ian Fitzsimmons – will air immediately after each weeknight game until 3 a.m., and will offer full postgame coverage and analysis with live players and coaches reactions, as well as reporting from ESPN Radio’s Cleveland (WKNR 850 AM) and Bay Area (KNBR 680 AM and 1050 AM) stations.

Also, ESPN Radio will offer an NBA Finals Special on Sunday, June 4, from 11 p.m. – 1 a.m., hosted by Ari Temkin. A second NBA Finals Special will broadcast on Sunday, June 18 (from 11 p.m. – 2 a.m.), if Game 7 is necessary.
