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.

Change backgrounds

Monday & Friday worked. Monday & Wednesday is ridiculous. I have stopped listening. Get your act together. Don’t let compas media ruin a good listen.

Stop with the music

I know you have a new partnership with a podcast company, but the music they make you play undercuts the reputation you have built for this prestigious program.
The new format is not good. The normal intro song was fine and whatever song is played should not continue into the opening comments. It should stop after the introduction. We don’t need the parting shot introduction either. These cliched songs and introductions for segments belong on low rate am radio.
Keep it clean and classy gentlemen. This show has too much cache to us those tactics.

Thanks for the marathon mention. I ran it again this year and actually passed Micah a few miles from the finish and remember him struggling. I remember him because I was wondering why he was wearing long black pants on a sunny humid day. Take care
