ESPN LA 710 Adds Sean Farnham To Afternoons

ESPN LA 710 is making a tweak to its afternoon show. Kelvin Washington is stepping out, and college basketball analyst Sean Farnham is stepping in to work alongside Marcellus Wiley and Eric Davis. The new show is scheduled to start January 4th and be renamed Afternoons with Marcellus, Farnham and E.D. However, with Davis on the sidelines due to the NFL Network sexual harassment allegations it’s unclear if he’ll be back for the show’s launch date.

“I am so excited to join Marcellus and E.D. on ESPN LA 710,” said Farnham. “Radio to me has always been about connecting and driving the passion of the sports fans on the topics that matter most to us in our city. I started in radio with ESPN LA 710 in 2004 and 13 years later it feels great to return home.”

“We could not be more excited to welcome Sean to the team,” said Scott McCarthy, vice president and general manager of ESPNLA. “He obviously has deep roots here in LA, including as a player on terrific UCLA squads and as a coach at Pepperdine. He also has a great passion for sports and a very strong track record as an entertaining and informative radio talent.”

In addition to his new radio role, Farnham will continue as a college basketball analyst calling games across ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and SEC Network for various conferences, including SEC, Pac-12 and West Coast Conference.

  1. Move Mason and Ireland to 3-7. They are interesting, fun, and bright. Marcellus and whoever this week are boring. No personalities, when sports are slow, you need fun and interesting personalities.

    The show sucks without Kelvin. Espn blew it. He’s way more articulate and humorous than Marcelus. They should have gotten rid of Marcelus if anything. The show is soooo boring without him. I bet the ratings are going to tank big time with this new lineup. Expect more firings and changes again in a few months or sooner.

  3. Washington was one of the most unlistenable sports personalities ever. Farnham should do pretty well – he’s close enough to Kellerman to carry that show. But this is just the tip of the iceberg for ESPNLA. They absolutely need ax LZ Granderson. That racist is so horrible I can’t believe he’s lasted this long. Same goes for Stephen A Smith. Terrible radio. Bring back Trudell and yes, Thompson.
