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, 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 Thursday.

What happened to it?

serious listener Pete ,

Mike lupica

Please tell Mike Lupica to stop interrupting the other hosts when they are giving their opinions or stating their point of view. Please stop. I am also not interested in his opinions comparing sports situations to President Trumps ideas or how he is doing as president. Hilliary got crushed in the 2016 election. Get over it. Other than that, I loved the show when it was on TV and I love it now. It sure was enjoyable to listen to Mitch and Bob without the interruptions from Lupica...please please tell Lupica to stop interrupting the other panelists. We all know how smart Lupica thinks he is

Lupica & Ryan go away please ,

Ok?

Mitch is fantastic. He is smart, thoughtful and very entertaining. When he is absent I don’t listen.

Ryan mumbles and has incoherent rambling thoughts.

Count the number of times Lupica says Ok?? It will astound you. I have counted as many as 30 in a single episode. Lupica also is constantly laughing at his own attempts at humor when no one else laughs.

The best podcast ever ......No Ryan or Lupica. Keep this broadcast team

Turned off when you had only Lupica and Ryan.

Again turned off when Mitch was not on.
Ryan and Lupica are impossible to listen to without the insightful Albom.

Obviously no one reads these as Lupica and Ryan are not coherent and mildly interesting

Mitch should do the show with guests and let the other two talk to each other on the phone off air.

Thanks for no Ryan. Now lose Lupica.
