Cumulus Media's new all-sports radio station, ESPN 630 has tapped two veteran Washington, DC, sports broadcast personalities, Andy Pollin and Bram Weinstein, to join its on-air team.
Pollin joins ESPN 630 as Sports Update Anchor in mornings, broadcasting local sports updates within ESPN's "Golic & Wingo Show" weekdays from 6am to 10am. He will also be Features Correspondent for the station. Weinstein joins ESPN 630 as Afternoon Host, anchoring the weekday 3pm to 6pm slot, as well as the ESPN 630's "Redskins Today" program, airing weekdays at 6pm. "The Bram Weinstein Show" will launch Tuesday, July 30th, with a three-day series of broadcasts from Washington Redskins NFL Training Camp in Richmond, VA.
Pollin was part of the original team at America's first all-sports station, WFAN/New York, in 1987. Five years later, he returned to his hometown of Washington, DC, where, as Sports Director, he played a key role in the launch of all-sports WTEM/Washington. In his 25 years there, Pollin established himself as a major sports voice as he co-hosted the popular "Sports Reporters Show" in afternoon drive, and spent 14 years working alongside Tony Kornheiser, both locally and nationally, on ESPN Radio. Pollin has also served as pre- and post-game host for Redskins coverage and is well known for his encyclopedic knowledge of the team's history.
Weinstein is a native Washingtonian who has spent more than a decade covering DC sports as a reporter and talk show host, including eight years as a Redskins beat reporter. In addition, he spent seven years as an anchor at ESPN.
"We're thrilled to welcome these DC sports radio icons to ESPN 630 and look forward to sharing news of further additions to our team in the very near future," said Bill Hess, Program Director, Cumulus Washington, DC.
"After nearly 30 years of doing sports radio in Washington, I'm incredibly excited to join ESPN 630 and restore the frequency's great history of sports," added Pollin.
