Andy Gresh is returning to Providence. The accomplished sports talk show host who has been co-hosting afternoons in Hartford alongside Joe D’Ambrosio on WTIC, in addition to working weekends for the CBS Sports Radio Network, has signed on with Cumulus Media’s WPRO-AM. As part of his new role, Gresh will host weeknights from 6p-9p ET on the station.
Andy’s new program The Gresh Show will debut on Monday April 17th. His role on the CBS Sports Network remains unchanged.
During the course of Gresh’s career he’s enjoyed stints with WFAN, ESPN Radio, Sirius XM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio and WPRO’s sister station 790 The Score. He was also part of the launch of 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston where he worked alongside Scott Zolak and enjoyed huge ratings success from 2010 to 2015.
Aside from having market familiarity, Gresh is well versed in discussing Rhode Island sports and the region’s top teams, the Red Sox, Patriots, Bruins and Celtics. It’s been a heavy focus on his programs during multiple stops and he’s also been a member of the New England Patriots radio network, and a television contributor in the New England region on CSNNE. Adding to his local credibility is the fact that he graduated from the University of Rhode Island and was a starting offensive lineman on the URI football team.
“I’m excited to come back to where it all started for me 20 years ago. It’s time to turn nights at WPRO on its ear and let Rhode Island take back its sports talk,” said Gresh.
WPRO Program Director Tony Mascaro added, “This market has waited almost 10 years to bring back local sports to the airwaves. I am so thrilled to welcome Andy home. The combination of our heritage talk team and The Gresh Show with sports at night and his unique style will give Rhode Islanders that perfect mix of local talk and local sports.”
