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, Bill Rhoden and Christine Brennan, to new and fresh voices in the industry. Join the best conversation in sports every Monday and Friday.

Customer Reviews

As good as ever

Glad to have you guys back!

More more more Mitch Bob Mike clever sardonic funniness on sports

Used to watch these guys regularly on television. Having them as a podcast is a tremendous blessing. You get to hear them twice a week for twice as long.

Even the ads are fun as read by these serious comics. Hearing Mitch talk about MeUndies underwear and Mike on Betterment financial advisors and Better Off financial advice podcasts is enhanced by their sotto voice supportive sarcasm. I don’t mind listening and laughing along. 🤣

Keep it coming—more more more please. Highly highly recommended.

CLAIMER: I don’t know these guys at all.

Would be Great Minus Lupica

Always liked Albom and the other guests that used to be on the TV version of this. What made me quit watching was Lupica. His whiny, high-pitch yelling is annoying as all get out. Lupica always come across as he's delivering a "Jane you ignorant slut" type rant. Man cannot deliver a differing opinion without yelling.

Would love to have Albom and Ryan, Tellander, et. al. on this podcast, but Lupica has driven me away again.
