December 8, 2010 at 7:17 AM (PT)
Part of MICHAEL WILBON's new deal with ESPN will include a weekly appearance on ESPN Sports WMVP-A (ESPN RADIO 1000)/CHICAGO's "WADDLE AND SILVY SHOW." WILBON, ESPN's "PARDON THE INTERRUPTION" co-host, has officially expanded his role with the sports network after exiting his longtime position as columnist for the WASHINGTON POST, adding columns for ESPN.com and ESPNCHICAGO.com.
"We're thrilled to have a writer and a voice of MIKE's stature joining ESPN.com and ESPNCHICAGO.com, where his strong opinions and thoughtful commentary on the most important issues in sports and culture will engage our fans in new ways across our platforms," said ROB KING, vice president and editor-in-chief for ESPN DIGITAL MEDIA.
WILBON added, "Although I've been working for ESPN as co-host of PTI since 2001, writing is my first love and I'm particularly excited to be able to join an impressive stable of columnists at ESPN.com. And to lead some of the discussion in the best sports city in AMERICA, which is also my hometown, is both a challenge and dream-come-true."
