After being let go unexpectedly at ESPN 980, longtime Washington D.C. sports talk show host Andy Pollin has reemerged with local competitor 106.7 The Fan. According to the Washington Post, Pollin will appear as a regular guest on the station’s top talk shows and contribute as a weekend and fill-in host.
Pollin spent nearly 25 years with ESPN 980, most of it in afternoon drive as part of “The Sports Reporters” with Steve Czaban. The show had been performing well at the time of Pollin’s exit. Czaban now hosts the program solo.
As part of his new role, Pollin will reunite with a former 980 teammate Thom Loverro. The two men will host Saturday mornings together from 9a-Noon ET. They’ll also join forces filling in for Chad Dukes in afternoon drive this Monday.
