(October 14, 2016) In January 2013, Will Chambers joined a new sports station in Cincinnati, OH as a Morning Drive sports anchor and co-host. He thought his career was on its way. Six months later, his team got off the air at 10 am and were told the station was flipping formats in two hours.
Today, Chambers’ career is again trending up. An STAA member since 2010, Chambers and Jean-Jacques Taylor are the new midday show at ESPN 103.3 in Dallas.
For Chambers, the opportunity is the payoff to a bet he placed on himself two years ago. Unable to find another job in Cincinnati, Chambers moved to Dallas. He had personal ties to the city but zero employment prospects. “It was a total leap of faith, and eight months in I thought the career was done,” Chambers recalls.
Chambers was working in marketing when the opportunity finally arose to join 103.3 ESPN as a utility host. Simultaneously, Chambers moved into pharmaceutical sales to help pay his bills while earning more opportunities at the station. He hosted ESPN Dallas Game Night, ESPN Dallas Game Day, and was a fill-in host on the ESPN Mavericks Radio Network. Now Chambers is hosting middays 9 am to 1 pm.
In addition to sports talk, Chambers’ resume includes play-by-play for Georgetown College (KY) and various high school sports. He is a graduate of Northern Kentucky University.
