ESPN suspends PTI commentator


Fox Sports





Updated Feb 23, 2010 3:14 PM ET

ESPN has suspended TV commentator Tony Kornheiser for remarks about fellow ESPN personality Hannah Storm, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

Kornheiser, the popular host of the show "Pardon the Interruption," is known for making sports figures the subject of his humorous criticism, but in a recent show he aimed his commentary at Storm's wardrobe.

"Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today," Kornheiser said. "Shes got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now.

"Shes got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body I know shes very good, and Im not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I wont but Hannah Storm come on now! Stop! What are you doing?"


Kornheiser opened his radio show the next day by apologizing, saying, "I apologize, unequivocally ... I'm a sarcastic, subversive guy ... I'm a troll, look at me. I have no right to insult what anybody looks like or what anybody wears. That, I think, should go without saying."

SportsByBrooks reported the suspension will be for three days.

The 61-year-old Kornheiser -- a former columnist for the Washington Post and broadcaster for ESPN's Monday Night Football telecasts -- has hosted PTI since 2001.




Don't like the guy but in his defense:

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

kornheiser has let what lil popularity he has enjoyed go to his head imo.

his talk radio show in the mornings isnt even about sports, which i think he has grown tired of covering and talking about.

its all about him and hollywood and celebrities and tv shows. its not about who won what award at an award ceremony; its about who he sat next to or talked with at an award ceremony.

his comedy schtick is old and not funny. dont know why espn radio decided to toss him back to us for local radio.

this hannah storm thing is the perfect example. he's talking about what a sports reporter is wearing and not what she is reporting.

I used to be a Kornheiser fan until he went to MNF and became a cry-baby when people criticized him.

Last week I was listening to him on my way to work, around 9:30-10am and he said something about Gilbert Arenas and his fall from grace with the Wizards. He said something to effect of "Eventually, Gilbert wanted his jersey hung at Verizon Center, but now people want to hang him from the rafters."

He didn't use it in the context that it suggests but I thought he may face some scrutiny for phrasing it like that even though it was an off the cuff remark.

So when I saw "susupended" I thought it was for that remark. It seems to me that Tony tries too hard to maintain his quirky personality and it is no longer candid. I'm a fan of anyone from the DC area though so I can't say that I hate the guy...he just seems irrelevant to me.

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

I liked him better as a columnist for the WashingtonPost. Tony has been dabbling in some things he's not best suited for.

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

So much for the three day suspension....

Looks more like a 2 week suspension. He's an ass wipe.

Kornheiser suspended for remarks
ESPN.com

ESPN has suspended "Pardon The Interruption" co-host Tony Kornheiser for two weeks following comments he made on his Washington-based radio show last week.

On his radio show, Kornheiser made critical comments about the wardrobe of morning "SportsCenter" co-anchor Hannah Storm.

ESPN executive vice president of content John Skipper released the following statement:

"Tony Kornheiser's comments about Hannah Storm were entirely inappropriate. Hurtful and personal comments such as these are not acceptable and have significant consequences. Tony has been suspended from PTI for two weeks. Hannah is a respected colleague who has been an integral part of the success of our morning SportsCenter."

Kornheiser apologized for the remarks on his radio show Friday.

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

i have never liked him. His stint on MNF was unbearable for me. Glad he is suspended just so i dont have to watch him on pti. Anyone know if its suspended without pay?

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

What a moron. Come on Tony. I mean how can he mess up this bad? First the women he made the comments on is obviously very attractive, and not just for her age. Of course even if he was right the comments were at best 100 times more inappropriate then Hannahs outfit. And to top it off he said it on the air. At least Dana Jacobson had her asshat moment off camera.

Re: Kornheiser suspended for "slutty" remarks

What a turd Kornheiser is. His PA is a friend of mine. We went to grade school together. I always hold back on my opinions of him when I'm around her. All those faces behind him and Wilbon on PTI, when my friend had her first baby, his little face was on there. Pretty cool. I've been at events with Kornheiser. He's a nice enough guy, but too fond of his own voice. It was just plain stupid to rip Hannah Storm like that. Just god awful judgement.
