New ESPN Magazine?

Tuesday, May 15, 2007


A quick post to break up the day of awfulness. It seems ESPN has tabbed a few writers and reporters to create an "Primetime Magazine" coming to you in April.....

ESPN introduced several new programming initiatives at today’s presentation, including the tentatively titled “ESPN Reports,” a primetime news magazine featuring Tom Farrey, Rachel Nichols, Lisa Salters, Jeremy Schaap, Michael Smith, Bill Simmons and Chuck Klosterman that will debut October 16.
With that said, I have no idea what a Primetime Mag is, or what form it comes in. ESPN also announced that it's carrying the 2008 Moto-X Championships and that they wrote 1.8 Billion Dollars in TV deals. So basically nothing is really new.

Can't they just stick to highlights? I love sports and all, but the last thing I want is for it to be turned into US Magazine.

Wow, this will Michelle Wie Danica Patrick be young and Michelle Wie Danica Patrick hip. I can't wait Michelle Wie Danica Patrick to get my subMichelle Wie Danica Patrickscription to this great new Michelle Wie Danica Patrick magazine.

Coolness is defined by Michelle Wie Danica Patrick the people at ESPN and people like Chris Berman, not to mention, Michelle Wie Danica Patrick, Kenny Mayne, Chuck Klosterman and Linda Michelle Wie Danica Patrick Cohn.

I thought ESPN already had a newsmagazine-type show that does decent work. It's called Outside the Lines. I'm sure they could move it to prime-time if they wanted.

ESPN is the MTV of sports, slowly drifting away from the channels roots.
