Entercom Signs On-air Personality Marc Hochman to Multiyear Contract Extension
Host to Remain on AM 790 The Ticket and 560 The Joe WQAM in Miami
PHILADELPHIA, PA – June 25, 2020 – Entercom, a leading media and entertainment company and the unrivaled leader in sports radio, announced a new multiyear contract extension with on-air personality Marc Hochman. The host will continue to be heard on “Hochman and Crowder” alongside co-host Channing Crowder on AM 790 The Ticket (WAXY-AM), the flagship station of the Miami Heat, weekdays from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET. Hochman will also continue to be heard from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. ET via simulcast on sister station 560 The Joe WQAM (WQAM-AM), the radio home of the Miami Dolphins, University of Miami Hurricanes and Florida Panthers.
“Marc is a staple in the Miami sports media scene and brings a dynamic repertoire to our weekday sports talk programming on both The Ticket and The Joe,” said Keriann Worley, Senior Vice President and Market Manager, Entercom South Florida. “With four flagship partnerships between the two stations, the lack of live sports has created a unique challenge in programming, but Marc and Channing have continued to inform, entertain and engage with listeners. We look forward to more in the years to come.”
“I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue hosting afternoon drive along with Channing Crowder,” said Hochman. “This is, without question, the most fun I’ve ever had doing radio. I’m so grateful that Miami has really embraced our show over the years and I can’t wait to continue doing it for many years to come.”
Hochman joined WQAM as an afternoon drive host in 2013 after spending the previous 10 years as Executive Producer of “The Dan Le Batard Show” AM 790 The Ticket. “Hochman and Crowder” has been heard on both stations via simulcast since 2019.
