TONY KORNHEISER told his RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON audience on today's show that he will remain on the station "for another two years, at least." DCRTV and the WASHINGTON POST's DAN STEINBERG report that KORNHEISER, who has voiced pessimism about the future of the show, said that "the long-term prospects for the show have brightened considerably ... the show will continue, so I should say that."
Dir./Programming CHUCK SAPIENZA told STEINBERG, "Our goal has always been to have TONY with ESPN 980 long-term, and we hope to have an official announcement soon." KORNHEISER will, as has been customary for him, take most of the SUMMER off.
