ESPN RADIO is adding a weekly one-hour show with reporter and "E:60" correspondent JEREMY SCHAAP for FRIDAYS at 10p ET, beginning SEPTEMBER 11th. "THE SPORTING LIFE" will include sports features, profiles and narratives; SCHAAP's late father DICK SCHAAP hosted a show called "THE SPORTING LIFE" on ESPN RADIO, on which JEREMY appeared.
"THE SPORTING LIFE will be a show that emphasizes long-form journalism, not driven by talk, but by the stories we produce -- profiles, investigations and more off-beat pieces, too," said JEREMY SCHAAP. "On a more personal level, it means a lot to me that THE SPORTING LIFE -- which my father hosted and I regularly co-hosted -- is being revived, albeit in a different format. I am hoping that sports fans who appreciate the in-depth stories they see on OUTSIDE THE LINES and E:60 will make a point of listening to THE SPORTING LIFE on ESPN RADIO."
