Dear God, no!

Stephen A. Smith back at ESPN -- on radio, web


    Stephen A. Smith is returning to ESPN as a radio host and columnist.

    Smith will host a pair of two-hour, weekday local radio shows -- one airing on ESPN 1050 in New York from 7-9 p.m. ET and another on ESPN 710 in Los Angeles from 6-8 p.m. PT. The shows will concentrate on local sports with a concentration on the NBA on game nights as both stations are the flagships for the Knicks and Lakers, respectively.


I knew Stephen A. would fall on his face trying to make a living without the ESPN machine behind him, but I thought that experiment would end with him disappearing forever. Instead, not only does ESPN bring him back, but they've also apparently decided to put him on during my drive home. Thanks a lot, jerks.

As for a return to TV, well...we'll see Screamin A. soon enough, if the man himself is to be believed:

Quite frankly, I hope they don't. ESPN was starting to become a quieter place, Skip Bayless aside.

Good timing. Dot.com (dot.com) is hurting for content.

I normally don't much care but having heard him several times on the radio is enough to make me poke my eyeballs with hat pins. Hopefully what you reported is a far as it goes. Dear God help us if he is back on TV.

You dislike him on radio, so you're protecting your eyes from further abuse? You're doing it wrong!

The correct answer is, was, and always will be Slava Medvedenko.

As he returns from Dallas having broadcast his new Sporting News Radio show from "Radio Row," I'm sure Steve Czaban is having a hearty laugh at Fox Sports Radio's expense for having not renewed his contract to put that abomination on in his place in order to get penetration into the New York and Philadelphia radio markets. (or as Nelson Muntz might say "Hah Hah").

I'm sure I'll have to deal with SAS on tv at some point however, and I dread that day. Maybe they could pair him with Colin Cowcrap and I would be able to avoid the both of them at the same time!
