Stephen A. Smith is back at ESPN and bigger than ever.
Smith will host two (!) weekday local radio shows and serve as a featured ESPN.com columnist, writing regularly for ESPNLA.com and ESPNNY.com
One show will air on 1050 ESPN in New York from 7-9 p.m. ET and another on 710 ESPN in Los Angeles from 6-8 p.m. PT. Smith will cater the show to the local markets with a focus on NBA during game nights, as 1050 ESPN and 710 ESPN are the flagship stations for the New York Knicks and Los Angeles Lakers, respectively.
“Words cannot express how excited I am to return to ESPN,” Smith said. “The five-plus years I spent here in my previous stint were unquestionably the best years of my professional career. To have the opportunity to return to a place where I have an abundance of friends – with individuals whose contributions to my life, both professionally and personally, deserves far more credit than I can describe – simply makes my return that much more special. I’m sincerely grateful. And very, very ready. As in right now. Let’s go!”
