Beating the door down (of your bosses), but not being obnoxious, is probably the most important thing to getting to where you want to be.” – Marc Kestecher

At an early age, Marc Kestecher was told that sports radio wasn’t going to pay the bills. So he went to Syracuse University and majored in chemical engineering.

It didn’t take long for “Kesty” to make a course correction and make radio his career of choice. Before too long, he was heard by the right guy at ESPN Radio and he took the opportunity given to him and has turned it into countless play-by-play, studio hosting and update anchoring duties.
