104.5 The Team ESPN Radio in Albany, NY is accepting applications for a Brand Manager who will also host PM Drive.

The Brand Manager oversees all aspects of Albany’s market leading sports station in addition to co-hosting our highly rated local PM Drive show. You have all the tools at your fingertips including great local talent, flagship ESPN national programming, premiere play-by-play (including Yankees Baseball, Jets Football, and UAlbany Athletics), production resources, digital tools, a passionate team, and a strong signal.

This is not a beginner position.

If you are passionate about sports and love to entertain, engage, and play a vital role in the community you live and work in, YOU are just the person we want to speak with. If you value connecting with your audience across digital and social media as well as hosting station events, you will impress us. If you can speak passionately about local, regional, and national sports, you will impress us even more.

The RIGHT CANDIDATE needs to possess outstanding verbal and written skills. Needs to be highly organized, driven and willing and able to do any job within the department. Should not only be highly skilled in broadcast, but also in developing online content. Must understand station’s listening audience wherever they use the brand and how to connect with this audience across all media channels. Needs to work well as a member of a team, operating in unison with digital, sales, promotion and engineering staff, and know how to motivate a team.

This person is eager to build relationships and value in our Capital Region community. This person also wants to be part of a successful and always growing radio company who highly values our brands, our talent, and our family of employees. If you have what it takes to deliver and win, we want you here in Albany!

Excited to post that Dan Bahl was hired for this position and it was announced last week. Dan worked with me the past four seasons on Quinnipiac Women's and Men's hockey broadcasts. He started with one game as a fill-in and by the following year was our regular women's hockey analyst, and last season also worked alongside me for about 1/2 of the men's schedule as well. For a student (as he was the first 3 years) to jump onto the ESPN+ side of our broadcasts and hold his own is a considerable feat, as the rest of us that work on hockey (as well as those on the basketball side) are all very experienced. And as good as he was on game broadcasts, he's better as a show host, which is a big part of this new gig. Albany is really lucky to have Dan on board! ... bany-team/
