WCKY (tent.) 1530 AM 0330 UTC 18 January 2021

I'll call this tentative because I didn't hear the ID, but I can't find another station in the listings for 1530 kHz that carries ESPN. I heard talking under slightly nulled KFBK in Sacramento. By 0347 UTC, I could hear the NFC playoff game post-game press conference with Tom Brady, matching what I heard on WCKY via the Northern Kentucky SDR. At 0355 UTC, I could clearly hear the ESPN show hosts talking behind KFBK, still matching the SDR audio. The talking was still audible as of 0430 UTC, occasionally fading up a little. This station's distance from me is 1,954 miles.

Nice catch on this one from your location. 
The Cincinnati station beams most of its power
away from you to protect the CA station.
