WASHINGTON — Longtime D.C. sports broadcaster Andy Pollin is joining 106.7 The Fan as a regular host and contributor, the station announced Friday.
Pollin joins The Fan after 25 years at WTEM and will host alongside fellow former WTEM-er Thom Loverro, also now a regular contributor to The Fan, on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
“I’m very excited to get another chance,” Pollin says. “It’s nice to be wanted. It’s what I love to do, being on the radio for 39 years. This will be the first time I will have ever worked for an FM station.”
Pollin began his career by helping launch WFAN in New York in 1987, a station which would set the bar for sports-talk in a rapidly changing world of radio. There for five years, Pollin worked as an update anchor alongside Greg Gumbel in the morning drive slot, followed by Jim Lampley in middays.
A lifelong Washingtonian, Pollin is a graduate of Bethesda-Chevy Chase High School, and attended American University for one year before earning his degree from Trinity University in San Antonio.
“It’s exciting to work with Thom Loverro, who I worked with and alongside for many years at WTEM,” Pollin says.
106.7 The Fan serves the Washington, D.C. area with a top-rated lineup of local sports personalities including The Sports Junkies, Grant Paulsen and Danny Rouhier, and Chad Dukes vs. The World. 106.7 The Fan is also the flagship station for the Washington Nationals, National Football League, Georgetown basketball and Virginia Tech football and basketball. The station is owned and operated by CBS RADIO.
