ESPN Upstate adds Mark Sturgis
Entercom announced a new addition to its ever-growing ESPN Upstate (Greenville-Spartanburg, SC) lineup. Starting 4/28, Mark Sturgis is moving from a two-hour show on WCCP-FM Clemson, SC to a 3-hour 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. show on ESPN Upstate. With this announcement, ESPN Upstate is now live and local for six hours straight, beginning with “In The Huddle” with Greg McKinney weekdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
“Our sports coverage in terms of talent, teams and signal coverage continues to get stronger and stronger. ESPN Upstate has become the most dominant sports network in the market,” said Entercom VP/Market Manager Steve Sinicropi. “Mark has a great live and local show right now, he has a network of sports contacts and he brings a passion for sports, strong knowledge and tremendous energy to the fast-growing EPSN Upstate audience. When you have a powerful brand like ESPN and the largest portfolio of radio stations in the Upstate to cross promote, it’s no wonder listeners and talent are coming to ESPN Upstate.”
