ESPN announced today that Freddie Coleman had signed a multi-year contact extension to stay with the sports network. "I have been blessed beyond compare to have been with ESPN Radio for 16 years and that I will have a chance to add to it humbles me beyond words," Coleman said in the official release. "To continue to keep loving what I do and doing what I love at ESPN Radio is something that I never take for granted."

Coleman's weeknight show Freddie and Fitzsimmons will continue to follow SportsTalk and air from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on 600 ESPN El Paso. Football sideline reporter and analyst Ian Fitzsimmons has been part of the show since 2016 and he will continue to join Coleman when ESPN Radio's new lineup debuts next month.

"Freddie has played an important role in ESPN Radio for almost two decades, continuing to engage fans while consistently evolving the weeknight timeslot," ESPN executive vice president Norby Williamson added. Coleman has been with ESPN Radio since 2004 when he co-hosted GameNight. He also hosted The Freddie Coleman Show weeknights and Sundays from 2013-16.
