Lada Launches ESPN Radio Show

Since joining ESPN almost a year ago, former WITI-TV FOX 6 sports reporter and anchor Jen Lada has appeared on a number of radio and TV shows for the network.

On Monday at 8 p.m. locally, Lada launched a new national radio show on ESPN radio called “Jorge & Jen,” co-hosted by Jorge Sedano.

With more than 15 years of radio broadcast experience, Sedano hosted “Sedano & Stink” with Mark Schlereth when he joined ESPN in 2013. Since March, he has hosted “The Sedano Show” at 6 p.m. on the syndicated network.

The placement of “Jorge & Jen” in the later time slot means more exposure on more stations that switch to the national shows when they don’t have local shows of their own. That means, Lada, who was a regular contributor on 540 ESPN, will have a chance at a much larger audience.

After moving on from FOX 6, Lada was an anchor and reporter in the Chicago area for Comcast SportsNet. Being in a Top 5 market, she was able to gain the national exposure needed for a gig with cable television’s largest sports and entertainment outlet.

Jorge & Jen” is part of a new lineup for ESPN Radio, ESPNradio.com, the ESPN app, SiriusXM, Apple iTunes, Slacker Radio and TuneIn. The show airs on 540 ESPN, except when local and national play-by-play coverage pre-empts it.
