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.
