ESPN's Audio Group Shaken Up With Two Execs Set To Retire
Two longtime and well-liked executives from ESPN's audio group will retire next month to work for separate nonprofits: Senior VP/ESPN Audio TRAUG KELLER and VP/National Radio Programming & Production MARCIA KEEGAN. Keller has been with Disney since '94 before joining ESPN in '04 and building out its radio business. Keegan had a stint with ESPN in the early '80s before returning in '05. A graduate of Jesuit schools, Fairfield Prep and Boston College, Keller couldn't say yet where he was headed, only saying that it has "something to do with the Jesuits." Meanwhile, Keegan will take on the role of Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence Dir of Civil Legal Advocacy. As part of a restructuring in the Audio group, ESPN promoted DAVE ROBERTS to Senior VP/Production, where he will oversee strategy for daytime linear and ESPN Audio content. Audio PXP & NY Radio Senior VP & GM TIM MCCARTHY will become the new ESPN LA GM, and ESPN Audio VP & GM SCOTT MCCARTHY will oversee business operations for the audio division.
