TONY KORNHEISER is exiting RED ZEBRA BROADCASTING Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON, with his last show to air in late JUNE. KORNHEISER, the ESPN “PARDON THE INTERRUPTION” co-host and former WASHINGTON POST columnist, has been on the air in WASHINGTON for 20 years.
“TONY is a pillar in the WASHINGTON, D.C. sports community and we would like to express our sincerest gratitude and thank him for his dedication,” said RED ZEBRA Chairman TERRY BATEMAN.
“I have loved every minute on the radio at WTEM,” said KORNHEISER. “But I felt it was time to pursue a new and appealing challenge. I will be launching a podcast this SEPTEMBER. I am excited that this endeavor will allow me to continue to work with so many of the people who have been a part of my radio show for over the past 20 years. But I will miss all of my friends and colleagues at WTEM.”
