Since I didn't see this posted anywhere else, but I might have missed it.  Is there any word on where TK will end up on the radio dial in January?

If I remeber correctly, TK signed 3 year deal with XM, seems they advertised that he was going to be doing multiple things for them but I don't think he did annything other than his show.  But with the merger, I don't know if the deal is still in place.  They have cut DP down to 2 hours again and replaced with Rivals radio which is bad so maybe there will be 8-10 slot on XM 144.  There is still open time from 12-2 on XM 144 between DP and Mad Dog which again is bad.

I think they're still advertising DP being on for 3 hours...maybe someone is asleep at the switch.

But seriously, they got rid of XMSN This Morning, which was getting better all the time...and replaced it with that dreck from Rivals radio.  Unlistenable.

It's probably just filler programming for TK's return.  With Patrick on Mad Dog Radio (No longer XMSN), and TK in the morning for 2 hours, that would work.

I fully expect TK to come back somewhere.  Probably 980, especially since he's no longer fully employed by the Washington Post, and the conflict of interest isn't there as much anymore...  Unless TK considered his ESPN employment a Conflict of Interest...

He should just come back to ESPN Radio nationally...

If only.

The local espn radio station doesn't carry the host who should not be named, but that doesn't stop them from running incessant national promos for the show every night ...

Man, he's a tool.

CowYard plays too well to the four-letter network's college football base, so unfortunately, i don't think he's going anywhere.  Satch could take over that 1pm slot nicely, but he seems to prefer mornings.  I like Tirico, but that midday show is GOD awful.

he likes mornings because he has PTI in the afternoon.  makes a 4pm time slot impossible

_______________________

Washington, D.C.: Any word if Tony Kornheiser will return to radio after this year's MNF gig is up? With no obligation to the Post, he's free to go to Rd Zebra without any conflicts of interest if they'll have him besides it affiliated with ESPN anyways. I'd scrap Colin Cowherd in a heartbeat for Tony.

Paul Farhi: I got nothin' for ya there. But your reasoning makes sense to me, on all counts.

Somehow, I get the feeling that when TK makes his decision, Farhi won't be the first person he'll call.

Not really about TK, but about someone he is rumored to replace.  Jason LaCa bringing it strong...

_______________________

Baltimore: As a writer, don't you think the media was way to quick to judge what happened in the whole murder incident. Colin Cowherd and Wilbon were QUICK to judge/write articles that it had to do with his past when it really did not. What are your thoughts?

Jason La Canfora: I remember listening to Cowherd - who I find to be an insufferable blowhard know-nothing for the most part - the morning after Sean was shot and thinking that he needed to be punched in the face.

Mike Wilbon has been accountable and upfront for everything he has done in his career and his journalism speaks for itself. He deserves legendary status and even if you didn't agree with everything he wrote, he stood behind, explained it and followed up on.

Some of the talk radio himbos just seem to skate and say whatever they please, regardless of fact or reality. Okay, let me get to another question before I get too hot.
