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.
Today's panel breaks down the latest news surrounding President Trump vs. the NFL and Steph Curry's remarks bout visiting the White House. Plus, the Lions lose a heartbreaker to the Falcons. Odell Beckham Jr. has a unique TD celebration and Carmelo Anthony gets his wish and is now a member of the Oklahoma City Thunder. All that and more in this episode of The Sports Reporters.
