Who is Russillo?

I didn't know that about his personal life. He might be worth meeting after all.:)

 

ESPN and other work[edit]

Russillo hosted NBA Sunday, The Baseball Show, and ESPN Radio College GameDay during the 2008 season on ESPN Radio. He was also a regular host for GameNight and a fill-in host for The Doug Gottlieb Showand All Night with Jason Smith.

Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch named him Best Radio Voice of 2007 for his work on ESPN Radio. He praised Russillo's "reasoned approach and knowledge across sports."[5]

He appeared regularly on several shows on Comcast Sportsnet New England, including New England Sports Tonight with Gary Tanguay and Greg Dickerson, and was also a studio analyst for the Boston Celtics' television coverage.

During the NBA season, Russillo was the host of ESPN's The NBA Today podcast, the network's #2 most downloaded podcast series.[8] Contrary to popular belief, in December 2012, this show was not cancelled to be swapped out with NBA Lockdown featuring former NBA player Bruce Bowen.

In September 2015, Russillo welcomed former NFL player Danny Kanell as the new co-host for his Russillo Show, after Scott Van Pelt's departure from ESPN Radio. Kanell was laid off from ESPN in April 2017, leaving Russillo as the sole host again, with multiple guest co-hosts occasionally joining him on the show.

On December 20, 2017, Russillo announced he was leaving his ESPN radio show to pursue other opportunities, with his final radio show taking place on December 22.[9] Since departing his show, he has continued to produce a podcast with ESPN and has also been appearing across several ESPN platforms including on television with Get Up!. In late August 2018 he re-signed with ESPN.[10]

Personal life[edit]

On August 23, 2017, Russillo was arrested in Wyoming for criminal entry, reportedly while nude and intoxicated.[11][12] He was suspended by ESPN.[13]
