The Man Sporting Many, Many Hats (2)

Former Pittsburgh Steelers star Hines Ward is becoming a member of the Turner household, as a daily contributor on HLN’s Morning Express With Robin Meade” and an analyst throughout all CNN platforms. But, a lot to Galvin’s surprise, the meeting went so properly that he organized Ward to come back to the CNN studio in Atlanta, Georgia to fulfill the Morning Express” team. In May 2002, CNN/SI shut down operations, 5 and Sports Tonight ended after a 21-yr run. Based in Atlanta, Hines will serve as sports activities contributor on Morning Express with Robin Meade, and also will provide analysis and commentary for all CNN platforms,” writes Bill Galvin in a memo to workers Wednesday.

He won the Super Bowl XL MVP award and most lately served as analyst for NBC’s Football Night in America.” He credits an NFL program that helps gamers with life after football and his NBC gig for helping his broadcasting profession take off. My first beat sports activities job was the faculty newspaper masking our basketball team.

Flip across the nationwide dial and you’ll see him on ESPN reveals like SportsNation or Outside the Lines here, ABC’s Good Morning America or Sunday’s This Week there, with plenty of CNN commentary at any time of day to go round. Here are a number of the options from the CNN pictures that make them especially compelling.

The most notable — at the moment on hiatus — is Keith Olbermann: A sports (and particularly baseball historical past) aficionado who also happened to be MSNBC’s prime-rated political host for many years before returning to ESPN.

The show was renamed Sports Tonight shortly afterwards, and when CNN pre-empted the show in late 2000 1 due to the protection of the disputed 2000 presidential election , producers determined to differentiate the format from SportsCenter’s highlights.

I’ve never been much of a fan of that method for apparent causes, having as soon as been a sports producer (Time Warner’s NY-1) and sports columnist and pundit (, ) before jumping into media, political, leisure, and political media leisure commentary here.
