    On Monday, Oct. 22, ESPN premiered Pardon The Interruption, a live and provocative show devoted exclusively to sports opinions and headline issues, each weekday at 5:30 p.m. ET leading into SportsCenter. The 30-minute program originates from Washington, D.C. and features Washington Post columnists Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon. They address a variety of issues each program, which includes in-studio and out-of-studio contributors. The program re-airs each weekday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

    Kornheiser and Wilbon, who have been debating each other in the sports and style pages of the Washington Post for more than two decades, face-off nightly on the day’s hot topics. Timely interviews with newsmakers frame the debates. Viewers also have an opportunity to ask questions and voice opinions. Veteran ESPN news executive Jim Cohen serves as the show’s executive producer.

    Kornheiser and Wilbon, frequent guests on ESPN’s The Sports Reporters, will remain with The Post and continue writing columns for the sports pages. Kornheiser also continues as host of the Tony Kornheiser Show on ESPN Radio.

    The Hosts
    Tony Kornheiser -- sportswriter, radio host, syndicated columnist, Washington Post humorist and author -- began his career at Newsday in New York followed by a stint at the New York Times. He has been with the Washington Post since 1979, as a sports columnist there since 1984, and in 1990, began writing a regular column in the Washington Post’s Sunday Style section. He joined ESPN Radio in November 1997 as host of the Tony Kornheiser Show, which premiered Jan. 5, 1998.

    Michael Wilbon became a fulltime columnist for The Washington Post in 1990 and has developed a reputation for offering commentary on wide-ranging issues of the day as they relate to sports. He came to the Post in 1980, and has covered Howard University, Georgetown University, the University of Maryland, the Baltimore Orioles, national college sports and the NFL before being named a columnist in 1990.
