Sports commentator tells it like he sees it

Tony Kornheiser '70 has been a sportswriter and columnist on various and sundry topics for major newspapers for more than three decades. He's also a known ESPN commentator and can be heard nationwide on radio.

An English major at Binghamton, Kornheiser worked for Long Island's Newsday and The New York Times before moving to the Washington Post, where he wrote a sports column as well as a column for the Sunday style section on topics ranging from sports to politics to teenagers. Those columns have been compiled into three books: Pumping Irony, Bald as I Wanna Be and Back for More Cash.

Now known as co-host of ESPN's daily sports opinion show, Pardon the Interruption, Kornheiser has also made a name for himself as a booth commentator for ESPN's Monday Night Football.
