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, 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, Bill Rhoden and Christine Brennan, to new and fresh voices in the industry. Join the best conversation in sports every Monday and Friday.
The panel is back to talk about all of the hottest topics from the sports world. The latest NCAA hoops scandal has the guys wondering if the FBI has the ability to end college basketball. Did a dirty hit by Danny Trevathan of the Chicago Bears merit an ejection? The guys think so. So why wasn't he? Plus, Cam vs. Tom this weekend and the guys take a look at the disappearing act of Cam Newton. When will the real guy show up, or is he still reeling from losing the Super Bowl a few years ago? All that and Parting Shots in this episode of The Sports Reporters.
