WFAN/CBS Sports Radio Adds Legal Analyst
CBS Sports Radio and 660/101.9 WFAN New York has added Amy Dash as a legal analyst.
Dash has previously worked for WCBS-TV and currently is an anchor for Law Newz Network and a correspondent for the syndicated “Crime Watch Daily with Chris Hansen”, while contributing to multiple blogs. She will guest on WFAN and CBS Sports Radio network programming to discuss legal issues pertaining to sports.
Emmy Award-winning Legal Correspondent Amy Dash will begin contributing to CBS Sports Radio and WFAN Sports Radio 101.9 FM and Sports Radio 66AM as a legal analyst. Amy will be a featured guest across the popular shows on CBS Sports Radio as well as The Fan to offer her expert legal opinion and analysis of news stories at the intersection of sports and the law. CBS Sports Radio and WFAN-FM/AM (New York) are dedicated sports properties of CBS RADIO.
“I am thrilled to contribute to CBS Sports Radio and WFAN, working alongside the station’s top-notch talent, producers and management,” said Dash. “I am especially looking forward to bringing legal straight talk to passionate sports fans. A high profile case can sideline an all-star on championship day or incite a national dialogue about patriotism and civil rights. The law is its own sport and fans who understand it can help shape the future of the game. I hope audiences will join me in debating the biggest cases in sports!”
“Now more than ever it’s the right time to add a legal analyst to keep CBS Sports Radio listeners informed of the latest legal issues affecting the teams and players we report on, follow and celebrate,” added Eric Spitz, Director of Programming, CBS Sports Radio. “Amy will offer her keen insight and commentary on everything from breaking legal news involving professional and college athletes to fantasy sports. We’re excited for her to provide this additional level of coverage.”
“Complementing her legal and journalistic backgrounds, Amy has a deep history of covering New York stories which will make her a welcome voice on The Fan,” commented Mark Chernoff, Vice President of Programming, CBS RADIO New York and PD of WFAN/FM-AM. “Her legal coverage of the sports played right in our backyard will be a great conversation starter for our listeners and hosts.”

Her reporting earned two Emmy Awards and six Emmy nominations, including a national nomination. She also broke news on several national stories.
Amy is considered the go-to legal expert for producers at CBS Sports. Last year she dissected the biggest national stories, including “Deflategate,” Hulk Hogan v. Gawker, Erin Andrews’ stalker trial and Aaron Hernandez’s murder trial, among others.
Amy’s standout sports coverage led to her appointment as legal correspondent for Mark Cuban’s AXS-TV program “Inside MMA,” where she became the first television legal correspondent to cover Mixed Martial Arts cases, including the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s legal brawl to bring live MMA to New York. Just two months later, Combat Press mentioned her as one of the Biggest Difference Makers in MMA.
