The Sports Reporters

Before “PTI” or “First Take” or any of today’s popular sports debate programs on TV, there was *The Sports Reporters* on ESPN. For nearly 30 years, every Sunday morning, top sportswriters exchanged in passionate, intelligent conversation about the major sports issues and personalities today. Now, anchored by Mitch Albom and Mike Lupica – two of *The Sports Reporters* longest-standing members - the magic of the show is in podcast form, enabling the hosts to continue their highly popular tradition with the benefit of twice-a-week perspectives. In addition to Albom, of the *Detroit Free Press*, one of the most decorated sportswriters in history, and Lupica, of the *New York Daily News*, perhaps the country’s most recognized and opinionated sports scribe, a third voice will join each program, ranging from former *Sports Reporters* panelists like Bob Ryan, Manish Mehta and Christine Brennan, to new and fresh voices in the industry.
