Tony Kornheiser went on “On The DL” again this week and after a few questions about his work on Monday Night Football and “bloggy news”, the ESPNer broke the news that he’s only going to be doing MNF for awhile and not radio….
“I don’t want to yo-yo. I don’t want to do it five months on and six months off. Or five months on and seven months off, whatever the math is. I don’t want to do that. So if I’m going to do Monday Night Football…if I’m gonna…then I’m not going to do it. I’m not going to do radio until I can do radio forever.
“Right. There is no radio, as long as I’m doing football. But I’ll happily be a guest on anybody else’s radio show whenever they want me. I loved it. I love radio. To do it for a while and stop becomes more painful than not doing it at all.”
Seems like a smart idea, and hopefully something that will give him time to improve on his work in the booth. Like him, I think the three are working much better this year, but still have some holes in their game. A lot of that has to do with the crappy games they’ve had this year, but also a lot to do with them still defining their own roles.
Oh, and everyone also give a round of applause to Dan Levy on his 100th show! Congrats.
