Weeknights at 7 PM beginning May 1
New York, NY (April 4, 2017) – MSG Networks (NYSE: MSGN) announced today that 98.7 ESPN Radio’s popular radio show “Hahn, Humpty & Canty” will return to MSG’s weeknight programing lineup. Every Monday through Thursday from 7-9pm, beginning Monday, May 1st through September 14th, MSG Network’s Knicks studio analyst Alan Hahn, former Islanders goalie and MSG’s Islanders analyst Rick DiPietro, and Giants Super Bowl champ Chris Canty will give MSG viewers a look inside their studio with a two-hour highlight show, featuring the triumvirate’s unique take on the New York sports scene. “Hahn, Humpty & Canty” is broadcast weekdays on ESPN 98.7 from 10am-1pm. The MSG Network telecast will feature a two-hour “best of” portion of that day’s show. In addition to being telecast on MSG Network, “Hahn, Humpty & Canty” will also be available on “MSG GO,” the network’s live streaming and video on demand platform. Last summer MSG telecast a one-hour version of the “Hahn & Humpty” show.
“As we showed last summer, our show is like sitting at the cool table,” said Hahn. “Where else are you going to get perspective from two pro athletes, a No. 1 pick and a Super Bowl champ, on all things sports?”
Hahn added: “Adding Chris Canty is a huge addition — literally. Summer on MSG just got a lot bigger.”
“It’s always been our goal to give our listeners an amazing sports talk radio experience,” DiPietro said. “The telecast adds another dimension to that and with Chris Canty joining me and Alan this year, it’s like a daily look into a pro locker room.”
“As a Super Bowl champion, I saw firsthand the importance of good team chemistry,” Canty said. “We have that on the show and now fans and listeners can not only hear it, they’ll see it too.”
“MSG Networks is excited to bring fans back inside the studio for the popular ‘Hahn, Humpty & Canty’ radio show,” said Jeff Filippi, senior vice president programming and production & executive producer, MSG Networks. “Fans will now get a first-hand look at the trio, their larger than life personalities and their spirited debates about New York sports.”
“There is nothing like the dynamic chemistry of Hahn, DiPietro and Canty in all of radio,” said Tim McCarthy, senior vice president and general manager, ESPN Radio. “Their unique take on New York sports and culture will translate well on MSG Network.”
Alan Hahn joined MSG Networks as a full-time studio analyst in the fall of 2011. Hahn spent 16 years as a writer at Newsday, serving as the paper’s Knicks beat writer for five seasons before joining MSG. Prior to writing about the NBA, Hahn covered the New York Islanders and the NHL, which is where he first met DiPietro. Hahn started at Newsday in 1995 on the high school assignment desk.
Rick DiPietro is a former NHL goalie who was drafted first overall by the Islanders in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft and played with them for 12 years. He joined MSG Networks Islanders telecasts in the 2015 season as a studio analyst.
Chris Canty won the Super Bowl with the New York Giants in 2011, and spent fours seasons with the team (2009-2012). The former Defensive End began his career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2005 and played 11 seasons in the NFL.
