Podcast from ESPN’s Bomani Jones Debuts April 3


The lineup of original podcasts from ESPN Audio will gain a new and distinctive voice when The Right Time with Bomani Jones debuts Tuesday, April 3.  Offered two times per week (Tues./Thur.), the show will provide Jones the freedom to expand on and add to the familiar elements – including his often thought-provoking takes on the hottest issues in sports. – from his former ESPN Radio show and his frequent appearances for many years across ESPN television programs.  The Thursday show will include a special guest as co-host, a personality in sports or media.

Jones has contributed to ESPN for more than a decade, often appearing on Around the Horn, SportsCenter, First Take and Outside the Lines, as well as being a daily regular on Highly Questionable from 2013-17.  In addition, as previously announced, later this spring Jones will have his own television show with co-host Pablo Torre.  The 60-minute show will air weekdays at noon ET.  His weekday afternoon radio show ended in 2017 after nearly three years.

“I’m really looking forward to rebooting The Right Time and moving it into the future,” Jones said.  “We want to do as much as we can with the flexibility of the podcast format to take what was a three-hour radio show and make it into an even better podcast. I really think the audience we served before – many of whom consumed the show digitally –will be happier with what’s next and the content will attract new listeners.”

Traug Keller, senior vice president, ESPN Audio, said, “Podcasting is changing how audio is consumed, since the listener is more in charge than ever, and offering dynamic content is a smart way to grow our business and serve our listeners.  Bomani, whose trajectory continues to rise, brings a distinct voice to an audience looking for compelling discourse.  His thought-provoking and entertaining opinions will translate perfectly to our on-demand platform.”

More news...On Sunday 107.5 WBLS weekend host LaDawn Black announced she was moving on to a new opportunity and leaving the station. Black made a surprise return to radio this week at her old stomping grounds as a guest host on The AM Clique Morning Show this week on 92Q (WERQ-FM Baltimore). LaDawn hosted the very popular night show 'The Love Zone' until 2013 when she moved over to sister Adult R&B station Magic 95.9 as midday host.

iHeart's Power 99 (WUSL-FM Philadelphia) midday host Cappuchino exits the station. She's been with the station since 2012. 'Way Up with Angela Yee' is now heard on Power 99 as one of the 30 affiliates that carry the syndicated program across the country.

Questlove went to Instagram to celebrate the word “jawn” being recognized as an official word in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. The dialectic term is native to his hometown. In Philadelphia and Eastern PA, “jawn” evolved as a variant of “joint,” originally denoting a place. “Jawn” has been used to describe almost anything that one need not or cannot give a specific name to. Suddenly jawn has become not cool to use.
