SVP & Russillo


Monday-Friday 10am-12Pm
Scott Van Pelt joined ESPN in Spring 2001 as the network's lead professional golf reporter.  He has since become a SportCenter anchor, while remaining the lead reporter and host of the network's coverage of golf's grand slam events.  His ESPN Radio show, the Scott Van Pelt Show with co-host Ryen Russillo airs 10AM-12PM weekdays. In 2001, Van Pelt sat down for a one-on-one interview with Tiger Woods after he won the U.S. Open to capture the "Tiger Slam," four majors in a row.  The interview was featured on ESPN's Sunday Conversation. Over his career, Van Pelt has covered all the major golf tournaments - the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship.  Following Tiger Woods' victory at the 1997 Masters (his first at the tournament), Van Pelt conducted an exclusive half-hour interview with the young Woods for a critically acclaimed network special, Tiger Woods: In His Own Words.  He has also covered numerous USGA events, NCAA Men's and Women's championships, BUY.COM Tour events and Senior PGA Tour events. E-mail Scott here.

Russillo joined ESPN Radio in February 2006, and has hosted NBA Sunday with Jamal Mashburn, The Baseball Show, and the NFL Draft. He has also filled in on talk shows including Tirico and Van Pelt, and The Herd with Colin Cowherd.

Prior to joining ESPN, Russillo was a sports voice in Boston, Mass. where he was a Comcast Sports Network studio host and NBA analyst, and a Sporting News Radio host. Previously, he was play-by-play voice of the Trenton (N.J.) Thunder, the Boston Red Sox Double A team. Russillo, a native of West Tisbury, Mass., is a 1997 graduate of the University of Vermont.


Danforth, Dirt, and Sprague


Monday - Friday: 12:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Join trifecta show hosts Taylor Danforth, Andy “Dirt” Johnson and Brandon Sprague. Danforth is a born and bred Oregonian who attended the University of Oregon. He became entrenched with the media scene there, and it wasn’t long until he went from the classroom to the studios at the FAN. Classified as the “quarterback” of the show, for his ability to open and close segments, he brings passion and knowledge rarely seen on the airwaves. Dirt was raised in southeast Portland, where he was an All-Conference QB for Cleveland HS. After turning down lower level colleges for football, he went on to Oregon as well, where he and Danforth met in the student media. He worked hard and in just a year and a half at the FAN he’s now a show host. A feat not easily achieved by someone his age - which proves how entertaining and passionate he’s been. Sprague completes the tripod, and rounds out the crew by being the lone Oregon State grad. From Corvallis, with his relationships and knowledge within OSU’s athletic department, he grabbed a job with CSNNW.com covering OSU exclusively. He’s since joined the FAN and helped make Danforth, Dirt, and Sprague the success it’s been. Email Danforth here. Email Dirt here. Email Sprague here.
