ESPN Radio is an American sports radio network. It was launched on January 1, 1992 under the original banner of "SportsRadio ESPN." ESPN Radio is located at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticutmarker. The network airs a regular schedule of daily and weekly programming as well as live coverage of Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, Bowl Championship Series, and National Invitation Tournament games. ESPN Radio is broadcast to hundreds of affiliate stations as well as to subscribers of Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio in the United States and Canada.

ESPN Radio currently has five company-owned stations in New York Citymarker, Los Angelesmarker, Chicagomarker, Dallasmarker, and Pittsburghmarker. Most other markets have ESPN Radio affiliates, whether they be part-time or have their entire format dedicated to ESPN Radio. The Walt Disney Company did not include the ESPN Radio network or the Radio Disney network in the recent sale of ABC Radio to Citadel Broadcasting. However, ESPN Radio as well as its Spanish counterpart ESPN Deportes Radio are still considered to be a part of the Citadel Media family because Citadel sells the advertising time on both services.

History

Logo (1992-2008)
Radio launched on January 4, 1992. Keith Olbermann hosted the first program. The top story that night was that Danny Tartabull signed with the New York Yankees as a free agent.

At first, ESPN Radio broadcast only on weekends. By 1996, it expanded to weekdays with a show hosted by The Fabulous Sports Babe, Nancy Donnellan. One hour of that show was simulcast on ESPN2 (1-2 p.m. Eastern time). Two years later, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic were brought together for a new morning show, which still airs today (and is also simulcast on ESPN2). By that time, Donnellan was gone and Dan Patrick replaced her. That show lasted until Patrick left ESPN in 2007.

Gradually, ESPN added more dayparts and became a 24-hour service.

In 1995, ESPN Radio gained national radio rights to the NBA. In 1997, it gained the rights to MLB on national radio.
