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

Welcome back Sports Reporters!
The gentlemen all have faces made for podcasts, so this is perfect. 😉
YES!!!!!! They're back!!!!!
As someone who woke up early every Sunday to watch them, I am more that thrilled that they are back...and TWICE a week. Super pumped.
Lupica is worst than a zombie. How you ask? A zoom may want to eat you but only groans which is less annoying than Lupica's high pitched stammering. A podcast and regular contributions to Sports on Earth, can not get rid of him. He will eat your brain one way or another.
