I cannot stop laughing at that picture from the Star Tribune. She looks so evil it's ridiculous. Anyway, Michele Tafoya is getting her own radio show, but not on ESPN Radio. The once Mike Tirico Show fill-in is getting a spot on local Minnesota station, CCO Radio. Oh, and she just brought home an adopted baby from Colombia. Seriously....
On Saturday, Tafoya and her husband, Mark Vandersall, brought home an adopted newborn from Colombia after a seven-week stay in that country. On Monday, Tafoya's much-rumored move to WCCO Radio became official when it was announced she would become the host of the station's 3 to 6 p.m. weekday show starting June 1.How's that for random? Good for her though. As far as the radio gig goes, this makes me think that her days at ESPN are numbered. She probably wants to stay closer to home, and this is the first step in that move.
"Life is changing for me in a lot of ways," she said on "The Don Shelby Show," which will move to an earlier slot, 1 to 3 p.m. Shelby and Tafoya will share the mike from 3 to 3:30 p.m., then Tafoya will be at the reins until 6 p.m. Tafoya also will continue on "Monday Night Football" -- she has two years left on that contract -- but was let out of her deal with ESPN Radio, which was to expire in September.
Tafoya will be 'CCO Radio afternoon-drive host (Star Tribune)
