Dan Graca is increasing his role on 98.7 ESPN New York. The regular contributor on ESPN Radio and to SNY-TV’s Loudmouths, Daily News Live & Baseball Night in New York will join the New York Jets game day radio team.
Graca’s new role begins on Friday, August 10th when the Jets face the Atlanta Falcons. He’ll work alongside former Jets linebacker Greg Buttle on the station’s pregame, halftime and post-game shows.
“You could say this is a job I’ve spent my whole life preparing for,” Graca added. “Growing up a New York Jets season ticket holder for 23 years, going from Section 302, Row 26 to now becoming a part of the game-day broadcast is nothing short of surreal. It is impossible to fully express the gratitude and excitement that comes along with this opportunity. The Jets are embarking on an exciting chapter in the history of the franchise and I cannot wait to get it started.”
“We are excited to add Dan to our gameday radio team this upcoming season,” said New York Jets team president Neil Glat. “Dan has been an integral part of covering the New York sports industry for the last 15 years and we are honored to welcome such an accomplished radio personality to our team.”
Ryan Hurley, program director of 98.7FM ESPN New York, said, “We are thrilled to have Dan join our Jets Game Day team. Fans are going to love the knowledge, passion and fun he brings to every broadcast.”
