Spike Eskin Announced as Programming Vice President at WFAN and CBS Sports Radio

Audacy announced Spike Eskin as Vice President of Programming for WFAN 101.9 FM / 660 AM (WFAN-FM) in New York and CBS SPORTS RADIO. Eskin, who previously served as Brand Manager of Philadelphia sister station SportsRadio 94WIP (WIP-FM) in Philadelphia, will transition to oversee both WFAN AND CBS SPORTS RADIO, including their full portfolios of broadcast, digital and live experience assets, effective July 1.

Eskin will succeed radio programming veteran Mark Chernoff, who recently announced he would be stepping down from day-to-day oversight of both brands. Chernoff will remain in his current position through the transition and officially step down on June 30.

“Spike has the vision, creativity, and drive to craft the next chapter of the iconic and influential WFAN brand,” said Chris Oliviero, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Audacy New York. “Along with CBS Sports Radio, his experience will be ideal to fuel our sports production powerhouse of 48 hours a day of original audio, 12 hours of quality television, all alongside a vibrant digital and social experience for both New York and the nation. As a long-time colleague of Spike, I am excited that he has joined our all-star team and have no doubt that he will succeed.”

“I’m humbled and excited for the opportunity to help lead WFAN into its next chapter,” said Eskin. “It’s an iconic station with incredible talent, and I’m looking forward to the challenge. I’m grateful to Chris Oliviero and Audacy for the opportunity. Working at 94WIP over the last decade has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I’m grateful to David Yadgaroff for his belief in me and the staff who stepped up to every challenge.”

Eskin is a seasoned radio industry talent with over 23 years of experience. Prior to joining WFAN, he served as the Brand Manager of SportsRadio 94WIP (WIP-FM) in Philadelphia since 2014. Prior to that, Eskin held additional on-air and programming roles at SportsRadio 94WIP, as well as two tours at 94WYSP – the rock station that was previously on the frequency. He has also previously spent time with Philadelphia sister station KYW Newsradio and Q101 in Chicago and is also the host of the popular Sixers-centric podcast The Rights To Ricky Sanchez.
