Breaking news! There will be one final debate before Election Day.
No, it’s not Hillary and “The Donald” going head-to-head for the last time; it’s Michael Kay vs. Don LaGreca, as the longtime co-hosts debate the hottest topics in sports on a special edition of The Michael Kay Show. The Great Sports Debate will air live on ESPN NY 98.7 FM Radio and YES Network from 6:00 to 7:00 PM/ET on Monday night, November 7, from the Rose Hill campus of Fordham University in The Bronx, New York.
The live showcase will be presented in conjunction with Fordham’s Department of Communication and Media Studies, and the moderator will be Kay Show co-host and ENN anchor Peter Rosenberg.
The Michael Kay Show will air live from Fordham’s historic Keating Hall during its regular time slot beginning at 3:00 PM, with the extended special debate program from 6:00-7:00 PM.
The Blue Chip panel of judges assembled to decide on the champion is comprised of ESPN NYRadio’s Hahn & Humpty program co-host and former Islanders goaltender Rick DiPietro, ESPN Radio personality Bill Daughtry, the host of Knicks pre- and post-game shows and the Saturday morning Bill Daughtry Show, Giants Super Bowl champion Chris Canty, and exceptional WFUV Radio student broadcaster Drew Casey.
Will Kay have a distinct advantage being on the friendly campus confines of his alma mater Fordham, in the same building that he broadcast on WFUV Radio, the university’s public radio station, as a student? Co-host LaGreca, a product of Ramapo College, will try to turn the tables on his colleague.
The Great Sports Debate is the brainchild of The Michael Kay Show team. ESPN NY Radio program director Justin Craig has regularly been a guest lecturer at Fordham’s Sports Communication undergraduate course at Rose Hill taught by adjunct professor John Cirillo.
The Great Sports Debate will be open to students, faculty and administrators at Fordham. In addition, a few lucky listeners who won an on-air contest will be in attendance.
