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 co-hosts debate the most relevant issues 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, November 7, from the Rose Hill campus of Fordham University in The Bronx, New York.
The debate will be presented in conjunction with Fordham’s Department of Communication and Media Studies, and the moderator will be Kay Show ensemble-member and ENN anchor Peter Rosenberg.
The Michael Kay Show will air live from Fordham’s historic Keating Hall (first floor auditorium) 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 vote on the winner is comprised of ESPN NY Radio’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 championChris 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’s 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.
Fordham students, faculty and administration are all welcome on a first come first serve basis for seating.
Tune into the Michael Kay Show on ESPN NY Radio 98.7 FM to win tickets to The Great Sports Debate.
