Jared Max wins time slot on ESPN Radio for winter months

While almost every other gay person in the mainstream sports media remains closeted, openly gay radio host Jared Max on WEPN/ESPN 1050 in New York won his time slot with key demos for the winter book. A very excited Max told me:

Winter book ratings (Jan, Feb, March) just came out. My show ranked 1st overall in NY at 5-6am (among 25-54 men). Show also dominated the younger audience 18-34M.

The network did well overall, with the high-profile show following Max's, Mike & Mike in the Morning, placing sixth in the demos; Max does updates for that show throughout the morning.

All in all, this is huge news for Max and for other gay sports broadcasters: If you do your job and stick to sports, listeners just don't care if you're gay. Great stuff.
