TONY KORNHEISER's return will be via a podcast distributed under a new partnership with DGital MEDIA and IMG. "THE TONY KORNHEISER SHOW" will relaunch as a daily download TUESDAY (9/6) and will be available through iTUNES, GOOGLE PLAY, SPOTIFY, STITCHER, TUNEIN, and other podcast distribution services.
KORNHEISER, co-host of ESPN's "PARDON THE INTERRUPTION" and a former longtime WASHINGTON POST columnist, left RED ZEBRA Sports WTEM-A (ESPN 980)/WASHINGTON earlier this year; he hosted at ESPN RADIO before returning to local WASHINGTON radio, first at the old BONNEVILLE News-Talk WTWP-A (WASHINGTON POST RADIO) and News-Talk WWWT-A (3WT) in 2007-08, then at WTEM from 2009 though this SUMMER.
“TONY is one of the few national personalities who continues to generate both buzz and news on a daily basis,” said DGital MEDIA Chief Content Officer CHRIS CORCORAN. “His storytelling expertise and sports knowledge are unmatched, and we are excited to create an exciting new home for his show and his fans.”
“On-demand audio gives me the chance to connect with my audience in a very personal, meaningful way,” said KORNHEISER. “The relaunch of the show to a platform that gives us more freedom to be the combination of smart and funny that we strive to be as we babble about the sports, politics, news and absurd stories of the day is a perfect match. I’m excited to partner with DGital MEDIA and IMG as we look for ways to give our fans, new and old, more of what they love about the show.”
“Across all mediums, TONY KORNHEISER has come to represent honest, pointed and entertaining storytelling in sports journalism,” said WME/IMG Chief Content Officer MARK SHAPIRO. “Given our long history, I’m personally excited to be reunited with TONY and his unique brand of commentary. Our entire WME/IMG team is proud to be a part of evolving TONY’s iconic show for the digital age.”
