Larry Gifford Joins ESPN Radio As Program Director

Larry Gifford will join ESPN Radio as program director effective Monday, Jan. 24. Gifford, who fills a position vacated by Peter Gianesini, who was promoted to senior director of Programming in August 2004, will oversee ESPN Radio’s weekday programming featuring Mike & Mike in the Morning, The Herd with Colin Cowherd, The Dan Patrick Show and Sportsbash with Erik Kuselias.

Prior to joining ESPN Radio, Gifford was program director at 1460 The Fan, WBNS-AM in Columbus, OH.

"Larry's work at 1460 The Fan in Columbus has been a shining example of how national sports radio content, when meshed together with quality local programming, under the right leadership, can win in local markets,” said Gianesini. “Larry will use that perspective gained on the local side to make ESPN Radio a better product for its affiliates, clients, and, most importantly, its fans."

Gifford said, “I think I now know what it must feel like to win the Heisman. I’m honored and humbled to be joining ESPN Radio, and look forward to working with the best in sports radio. As program director of ESPN Radio, I have high expectations, and promise to work hard to ensure ESPN continues to set the industry standard of sports talk radio."
