Former ESPN host Trey Wingo has landed a new gig.
The longtime sports broadcaster left the Worldwide Leader at the end of 2020. Wingo’s radio show, Golic & Wingo, was canceled heading into the football season. ESPN chose to reshuffle its radio lineup, leaving Mike Golic and Trey Wingo without full-time roles at the network.
Both Golic and Wingo have now left the Worldwide Leader to pursue other opportunities.
Wingo has landed one, as he’ll now be calling golf. The longtime ESPN host will be calling golf for PGA Tour Live. Wingo is beginning his broadcasting duties at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines, January 28 and 29.
The former ESPN host is a longtime golfer and a big fan of the sport. Wingo told Golfweek that he is excited for the opportunity.
“I’m excited. I love the game and loved covering the U.S. Open and the Open Championship for years,” Wingo told Golfweek. “I’m thrilled to be covering golf again.”
Wingo hosted some of ESPN’s golf coverage, so this won’t be new to him.
Covering golf is one of multiple career paths for Wingo since leaving ESPN. The longtime ESPN host has also created a podcast network.
