Unlike most normal people, I actually like and enjoy Tony Kornheiser on television. I’ve been a big fan of Pardon The Interruption for years and Kornheiser’s move into the booth was icing on the cake. ESPN has stuck by him despite the many criticisms but it’s looking like he may leave the booth to focus on his radio show.
DCRTV is hearing more rumblings that Washington Post superstar sports columnist Tony Kornheiser will not be returning to ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” next season. We’re told that Kornheiser wants to focus on his local morning radio show, which resumes on new talker 3WT in January, and on his ESPN “PTI” afternoon TV program. Kornheiser’s decision to give up the “MNF” color spot could cause some hurt feelings at ESPN, which removed sports media rival and former Redskin great Joe Theismann from the “MNF” broadcast booth before this season’s shows started. However, Kornheiser has publicly said that he and Theismann have a friendly relationship.
I don’t think this has anything to do with his radio show, Tony has feelings and is sick of people taking shots at him. You can’t let people get you off your game Tony!!
How can you not love someone who dresses up like a pilgrim and talks sports with a straight face?
