The Sports Bite is a local sports talk show covering Central Coast sports from high school to Cal Poly Athletics, as well as providing a local spin on national sports events, and stories. The show also includes interviews with National guests, local coaches, players and local sports reporters.
Dave Alles has been with ESPN 1280 since 2008, serving as Co-Host of the Sports Bite with Mike Wozniak. Dave comes to ESPN Radio after a decade of television work on the Central Coast at KSBY-TV in San Luis Obispo where he served as the station's Sports Director and, for his last two years with the station, 11-pm news anchor.
While Dave grew up in California, his broadcasting career has seen him make several stops around the country, starting in college where he graduated from Syracuse University's Newhouse School of Public Communication. Shortly after graduating, Dave got his first, full-time broadcasting job with KOTA-TV in Rapid City, South Dakota. That experience led to a job offer at KSBY in SLO where Dave has called home ever since.
Having spent his formative years in the San Francisco Bay Area, Dave grew up a fan of the 49ers, Giants and Warriors, affiliations he still holds dear along with his arguably unhealthy passion for all things Syracuse. You can hear Dave Alles and Mike Wozniak weekdays at 5pm on the Sports Bite on ESPN Radio 1280.
Mike Wozniak started with ESPN 1280 in 2004 serving as co-host of The Sports Bite. In addition to the weekday show, he has been a college basketball color analyst for Cal Poly men's games & Compass Media networks national hardwood schedule.

Mike came to Cal Poly from Carmel, IN and earned his undergraduate degree in management & finance. A starting shooting guard for four seasons, Mike helped set numerous school scoring records while earning the Big West Conference Freshman of the year in 1997. In 2000, he left the school as the all time leading scorer & still holds numerous school & conference records in FT's & 3pt's. After playing professionally for parts of one season in the International Basketball Association & the ABA, Mike returned to Cal Poly as a graduate assistant while earning his Masters in Business Administration in 2002.
During his formative sports years in the Indianapolis & Dallas area, Mike followed college hardwood stories while appreciating Texas sized football fanaticism. His current passion for golf was introduced at tournaments like The Byron Nelson & The Masters. Although a round of golf now takes precedence over shooting hoops, basketball training and coaching remains a large part of his life. Mike started 3Ball Academy in 2002 and has offered Central Coast youth an opportunity to train and compete while attaining their dreams of becoming better student athletes.
