Star Receiver on Every Thursday with Michael Kay and Don LaGreca

This NFL season, Odell Beckham Jr. – the New York Giants’ star second-year receiver – will appear weekly on ESPN New York 98.7FM’s The Michael Kay Show. Beginning September 3, Beckham will join Kay and co-host Don LaGreca,every Thursday to discuss the Giants and the NFL, continuing through the regular season and as long as the Giants are playing.

“It’s a privilege to add one of the NFL’s most exciting young talents to New York’s most entertaining afternoon show with Michael Kay and Don LaGreca,” said Tim McCarthy, general manager, ESPN New York 98.7FM.  “Adding Odell to ESPN NY’s 98.7FM football content will give all NY fans more of what they want, the biggest and best this fall.”

Beckham added, “I’m excited that I will have a weekly platform to talk Giants football, and give the fans some perspective from inside the locker room.”

Beckham was a rookie sensation in 2014, appearing in the Pro Bowl and being named Offensive Rookie of the Year. A first-round pick out of LSU, Beckham caught 91 passes for 1,307 with 12 touchdowns – all in just 12 games due to injury. In a nationally televised game in November against Dallas, he made what many consider one of the best – if not the best – catches of all time, reaching up and snaring the ball with one hand while falling backwards.
