Beginning Monday, Aug. 21, ESPN New York 98.7FM’s Alan Hahn will host The Alan Hahn Show – weekdays 7- 10 p.m. ET where he will discuss the biggest topics in New York sports. Hahn has hosted Hahn, Humpty & Canty (weekdays 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. ET) since 2014.

The re-named Humpty & Canty will continue to be hosted by Rick DiPietro and Chris Canty alongside new co-host Dave Rothenberg. Rothenberg, who has hosted The Dave Rothenberg Show weekday evenings, will join Humpty & Canty Tuesday, Sept. 5. The Saturday edition of The Dave Rothenberg Show will continue from 9 a.m. – noon.

“Hosting the show  with Rick and Chris has been one of the most valuable experiences of my career,” said Hahn. “I’m excited about my new venture back at night where it all started. I can’t thank Tim McCarthy (senior vice president of ESPN  New York 98.7FM) enough for working with me on this move to ensure I can keep developing as a radio host.”

Tim McCarthy, senior vice president of ESPN  New York 98.7FM, said, “Alan has been an integral part of 98.7FM and Hahn, Humpty & Canty. I am very happy that Alan will have his own show, showcasing his knowledge of New York sports, especially his basketball expertise. We are also excited to add Dave to Humpty & Canty. Dave has been a successful host for many years at 98.7FM and will only add to an already successful show with Rick and Chris.”
