Since joining ESPN almost a year ago, former WITI-TV FOX 6 sports reporter and anchor Jen Lada has appeared on a number of radio and TV shows for the network.
With more than 15 years of radio broadcast experience, Sedano hostedÂ "Sedano & Stink" with Mark Schlereth when he joined ESPN in 2013. Since March, he has hostedÂ "The Sedano Show" at 6 p.m. on the syndicated network.
The placement of "Jorge & Jen" in the later time slot means more exposure on more stations that switch to the national shows when they donâ€™t have local shows of their own. That means, Lada, who was a regular contributor on 540 ESPN, will have a chance at a much larger audience.
After moving on from FOX 6, Lada was an anchor and reporter in the Chicago area for Comcast SportsNet. Being in a Top 5 market, she was able to gain the national exposure needed for a gig with cable televisionâ€™s largest sports and entertainment outlet.
"Jorge & Jen" is part of a new lineup for ESPN, starting today on ESPN affiliated radio stations, ESPNradio.com, the ESPN app, SiriusXM, Apple iTunes, Slacker Radio and TuneIn. The show will air on 540 ESPN, except when local and national play-by-play coverage pre-empts it.Â
The rest of the schedule is (CDT):
5-9 a.m.: Mike & Mike
9 a.m.-noon: The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
Noon-3 p.m.: Russillo & Kanell
3-6 p.m.: The Right Time with Bomani Jones
6-8 p.m.: Jalen & Jacoby
8-10 p.m.: Jorge & Jen
10 p.m.-1 a.m.: The Freddie Coleman Show
1-5 a.m.: SportsCenter All Night with Jay Reynolds
The "Mike & Mike" show broadcast from Wisconsin this morning in Green Bay, getting ready for the Packersâ€™ Monday Night Football game on ESPN. Thereâ€™s no doubting that Lada will be talking about the Green and Gold on her show this evening.
