Michele Tafoya, the former KFAN host who is now a sideline reporter for ESPN's "Monday Night Football," will be returning to the radio airwaves on a regular basis. ESPN Radio will announce today that the Minneapolis-area resident will become a part of Mike Tirico's new weekday show. "SportsCenter" anchor Scott Van Pelt and Kirk Herbstreit also will contribute to the program, which will debut today.While those aren't necessarily BAD choices (I could argue a bit that Tafoya is a bad choice, but she's done radio before) it's a little suspect that they named three people. It seems like they still have no idea who they really want to do the show, and this appears to just be a continuation of the tryouts.
In related news....When the hell is Dan Patrick's show supposed to start? The only thing it says on his website is "soon". Well it's been soon for months now. And Mike, no pressure today....good luck.
(What? I'm in a good mood and I genuinely hope he succeeds. I'm serious. Of course I'll hammer him if he does bad, and there will be an AA review up later today. But still.....break a leg.)
