It's been awhile since I've done a "FINP", so I thought I'd throw a few out there. Here are a few folks making the move to new endeavours......
J.A. Adande- You might be as surprised as I am to read this, but apparently J.A. was not employed by ESPN as a writer up until today. For as much time as he spends on the network you'd think he'd have a cubical or something. He will focus mainly on writing about the NBA, but could become a talking head fixture like Michael Smith (AA can tolerate both so good move there).
Howard Bryant- The former Washington Post writer will be contributing a blend of columns, investigative reporting, and "long form" to the Leader. One of his first assignments will be to add content to ESPN the Mag. He's another great writer who's penned a few books.....another good addition.
Ike Reese- The former NFL linebacker was one of the few NFLers that got to go through the Broadcasting Boot Camp earlier this, and he now has a job from it. Reese is taking over for Ron Jaworski as the lead analyst during the Philadelphia Eagles Pre-Season Games. You'll also see Ike on Comcast and WIP this year if you live in or near Philly.
Also.....Brennamania is staying in Cincy for a few more years. The Reds signed Marty Brennaman to a 3-year extension.
