ESPN 630/Washington DC Adds Tony Kornheiser to On-Air Team


Cumulus Media's new all-sports radio station in Washington, DC, ESPN 630-The Sports Capitol, will debut the Tony Kornheiser Show today from Noon-1:00pm. Veteran sports personality Tony Kornheiser welcomes a cast of regulars and local guests to the show Monday through Friday in the city where Kornheiser made his name as a sportswriter for the Washington Post and as a popular radio and television host.

"I'm tremendously excited to be heard once again each day in the town where I live, and on a radio frequency I've listened to for forty years," said Kornheiser.

Bill Hess, Program Director, Cumulus Washington, DC, added, "Tony is a legend on sports radio in DC and we're thrilled to be his new home. With Tony at Noon, followed by ESPN's The Stephen A. Smith Show at 1:00pm, ESPN 630 has the best one-two midday punch in town!"

Tony Kornheiser is co-host of Pardon the Interruption (PTI) and is one of ESPN's most popular on-air personalities. The former Washington Post sportswriter and columnist also worked as an ESPN Radio host and Monday Night Football commentator.

Kornheiser and his former Post sports colleague Michael Wilbon have co-hosted PTI (M-F, 5:30 p.m.) since the show's debut on September 22, 2001. Highlighted by the type of contentious but good-natured verbal sparring that the two engaged in for years at the Post, PTI ranks among cable's most-viewed studio shows. With its unique, fast-paced, wide-ranging and humorous discussion of the day's top sports news, it is also one of television's most entertaining and innovative programs.
