Many kudos to ESPN RADIO's head "herder" COLIN COWHERD on being named SportsIllustrated.com's Sports Media Personality of 2005.
In making the announcement, the SI.com story said, "COWHERD emerged above the din as a voice who deserves praise. His show "The Herd" is an engaging mix of entertainment, information, and reportage. Its signature feature (Spanning the Globe, during which Cowherd checks in with local reporters and beat writers the morning after a big story breaks in their community) is one of the best things in Sports radio. Much of ESPN Radio, especially the MIKE AND MIKE SHOW and THE DAN PATRICK SHOW, treats its listeners like adults -- and COWHERD has distinguished himself by refusing to rely on angry ranting and the sexual innuendo that so often permeates local radio."
Cowherd is on ESPN from 10a-1p (ET) MONDAY through FRIDAY.
