ESPN Radio’s The Stephen A. Smith Show Joins ESPNEWS Simulcast Lineup

Network to Air Four Weekday ESPN Radio Simulcasts 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. ET


Beginning Monday, August 13, at 1 p.m. ET, ESPN Radio’s weekday The Stephen A. Smith Show will join Golic and Wingo, The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz and The Will Cain Show on ESPNEWS, making the network the TV home of all four of ESPN’s weekday national radio simulcasts.

The two-hour ESPN Radio show hosted by Smith, who also appears on First Take with Max Kellerman and moderator Molly Qerim on ESPN 10 a.m. – noon, debuted on the national ESPN Radio network in January.  Before that, it had been heard on SiriusXM channel 80 and ESPN’s owned and operated stations in New York (98.7FM) and Los Angeles (710AM).

“With each passing month, the radio show continues to progress, to move on up, adding elements and components that will only contribute to our success,” Smith said. “Simulcasting this show is yet another step in that direction, for myself, my team and, most importantly, for ESPN. As usual, now it’s time to get to work……and make it work……which we know I intend to do. Buckle Up!”

As I write this on 11-11-21, it's now 35 years for me at ESPN, the only real job I’ve ever had. I joined merely to help with the upcoming America’s Cup in Australia. I was told it would be for three months at all of $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville, Darlington, Indy and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals, Wimbledon (16 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, my main areas are tennis, UFC, boxing, network-wide ratings (by month/quarter/year), and corporate communications documents, including fact sheets, chronologies, lists and nearly 35 of the Year in Review press releases. UPDATE EXACTLY ONE YEAR LATER: Today, November 11, 2022, I am retiring from ESPN -- 36 years to the day I began. As I ride off into the sunset – top down and E Street Radio blaring – I do so with so many wonderful memories, proud of my contributions and a heart full of gratitude for the opportunity.
