Detailed Biography of Tony Kornheiser
Without a doubt, one of the most popular and well respected sports commentators and columnists over the past thirty years has been Tony Kornheiser. With his position as a print, radio and television sports journalist, he has had the opportunity to witness and offer commentary on some of the biggest events in sports.
Like many broadcasters, Tony Kornheiser’s career began in print media. He got his start in the 1970s, working for Newsday and The New York Times before joining The Washington Post and remaining with the outlet for more than 20 years. He still contributes columns off and on. He began hosting a radio show in the early 1990s in Washington, D.C., and his show has been carried nationally off and on throughout his career.
Today, Tony Kornheiser is best known for his roles on television as a host of “Monday Night Football” for ESPN and also for the ESPN show “Pardon the Interruption.” On the latter program, his co-host is the popular Michael Wilbon.
In 2004, one Tony Kornheiser appearance came in the guise of Jason Alexander, the “Seinfeld” alum who starred as a thinly veiled version of Kornheiser in the short lived CBS sitcom “Listen Up!” Other Tony Kornheisers in print have included his books, several of which are collections of his Washington Post columns. Among those titles are “The Baby Chase,” “Pumping Irony: Working Out the Angst of a Lifetime,” “Bald As I Wanna Be” and “I’m Back For More Cash: Because You Can’t Take Two Hundred Newspapers Into the Bathroom.”
