Stephen A. Smith: He’s back in the saddle at ESPN. He’ll be hosting a radio show on 1050 ESPN radio in NYC, and writing on ESPNNY.com. We broke the news in April of 2009 that Smith’s contract at ESPN’s wasn’t renewed, and in the last 20+ months, he’s bounced around to Fox Radio, Fox Sports and the Philly Inquirer, plus been a pundit on MSNBC and CNN. He gave this memorable interview in which he talked about why his newspaper work suffered: “When I walk the street or go to different places, my popularity speaks for itself. It interferes with the newspaper work.” Smith will replace Bonnie Bernstein on the radio. [ESPN Media Zone]
