Didn't I tell you I could just post these news releases all day long? I'm just getting warmed up.

Here's one from 1050 ESPN on the expansion of Brandon Tierney's show and the addition for part of it of former Newsday columnist Rob Parker. I most recently have seen Rob on "First Take" trying to debate Skip Bayless, which is like trying to debate a hyena. Not easy.

Anyway, click below for the Tierney news. I think I get an extra page view when you do.1050 ESPN New York (WEPN-AM), the flagship station of ESPN Radio, is expanding The Brandon Tierney Show by an hour, beginning this Monday, June 23. The show will air weeknights from 7:30 – 11pm. Also on Monday, long-time newspaper columnist and radio talk show host Rob Parker will join Tierney full-time as co-host for the 9 – 11pm portion.

“I’m excited that Rob is getting a chance to come home and we’re adding another native New Yorker to our lineup,” said Aaron Spielberg, 1050 ESPN New York’s Program Director. “Brandon’s high energy style, Rob’s journalistic excellence and their thorough knowledge of the New York sports landscape will be a great combination for our listeners.”
