ESPN 1050 adds David Cone after adding Billy Wagner
Speaking of former pitchers with new media gigs (see post below), ESPN 1050 has added David Cone as a regular on Michael Kay's afternoon show, where he joins a current pitcher, Billy Wagner, whom the station signed earlier this week.
Cone and Wagner both have long histories of blunt honesty, so this is a positive development in the ongoing New York sports radio wars.
(UPDATE: ESPN 1050 just announced another feature, "New York Baseball Tonight," which will be heard from 6 to 7 p.m. during Kay's show and include Yankees and Mets talk from ESPN types such as Peter Gammons, Tim Kurkjian, Buster Olney and Steve Phillips, plus reports from the station's Andrew Marchand, Larry Hardesty and Rich Coutinho.)
