Sports Nation On ESPN Radio
ESPN Radio is an American sports radio network. It was launched on January 1, 1992 under the original banner of "SportsRadio ESPN." ESPN Radio is located at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. The network airs a regular schedule of daily and weekly programming as well as live coverage of sports events including Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, Bowl Championship Series, and Championship Week games. ESPN Radio is broadcast to hundreds of affiliate stations as well as to subscribers of Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio in the United States and Canada. The network's content is also streamed online and via mobile applications. The content can also be streamed on Xbox 360 consoles via their iHeartRadio application, as all Clear Channel Communications-owned ESPN Radio affiliates (specifically KTZN, WAVZ, WBGG and WUCS) stream on iHeartRadio.
ESPN Radio currently has four company-owned stations in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas, with more two operated in New York and Boston under an LMA with its owners. Each station (including the second New York City station) is partnered with an ESPN local website named for the city (for example, espnnewyork.com for New York).
Most other markets have ESPN Radio affiliates, whether they be part-time or have their entire format dedicated to ESPN Radio. The Walt Disney Company did not include the ESPN Radio network or the Radio Disney network in the 2007 sale of ABC Radio to Citadel Broadcasting.

Famous quotes containing the words sports, nation and/or radio:
“There be some sports are painful, and their labor
Delight in them sets off. Some kinds of baseness
Are nobly undergone, and most poor matters
Point to rich ends.”

—Mark Twain [Samuel Langhorne Clemens] (18351910)
“The radio ... goes on early in the morning and is listened to at all hours of the day, until nine, ten and often eleven oclock in the evening. This is certainly a sign that the grown-ups have infinite patience, but it also means that the power of absorption of their brains is pretty limited, with exceptions, of courseI dont want to hurt anyones feelings. One or two news bulletins would be ample per day! But the old geese, wellIve said my piece!”
—Anne Frank (19291945)
