ESPN made yet another brillaint move recently - Stephen A. Smith is scheduled for the 7 to 9 p.m. slot on 1050 ESPN. Great thing about that for most is that you can't receive 1050 WEPN at that time due to its terrible broadcasting strength.
In case you didn't notice, Bonnie Bernstein (above with Bernie Williams, Jimmy Johnson, Matthew McConaughey, WFAN's Boomer Esiason and Dan Marino) was in the 7-9pm slot until the New York teams (Read: Jets) were eliminated. She is still under contract with ESPN. Actually, Bonnie is currently in Dallas covering the Super Bowl for ESPN and several ESPN affiliates. She's also doing work for Play 60's work with childhood obesity as well as the National Foundation on Physical Fitness Sports and Nutrition.
Mark Chernoff? Your station is a bit, uh, weak with females. Why not inquire and see what it would take? Yes, this is a repeat from June.
We know what you're saying. SAS will wear out his welcome by next football season and the spot will reopen. Fine. But if WFAN has the opportunity to grab the the youngest journalist on the American Sportscasters Association’s list of Top 15 All-Time Female Sportscasters, (not to mention someone who contributed features for The NFL Today; hosted the Network’s Emmy-nominated anthology series, Championships of the NCAA, and the NCAA Women's Gymnastics Championships; Plus anchored SportsDesk and At the Half, CBS’ New York-based studio shows...) Mark should pounce.
