On February 1, the radio station owner then-known as Entercom Communications revealed that “later in 2021” the Sports Format Captain for the entire company — and Brand Manager for one of its most iconic properties — will step down.
On May 12, the exact date for his departure from WFAN-AM & FM in New York and CBS Sports Radio was revealed.
Now, that day has come. As of July 1, Mark Chernoff will be succeeded by Spike Eskin at “The Fan.”
To commemorate his years of service at WFAN, which is the first Sports Talk and play-by-play-focused radio station in the world, Audacy on Wednesday officially unveiled “The Mark Chernoff WFAN Newsroom.”
The plaque reads: “Program Director 1993-2021. Influenced the sound of New York sports over four decades while nurturing the careers of many who traveled this space. Dedicated June 30, 2021.”
