Colin Cowherd, a
prominent, smart, objective, coherent, warm body in a chair radio host that has polluted our airwaves with nonsensical, borderline racist, sports related jibberish since 2003 is finally leaving ESPN. The departure seems to be in good terms on both sides, although I can’t imagine ANYONE with any sense in their head will actually miss him at the Mothership.
I know I won’t miss accidentally hearing his mouth-breathing, out of touch rants while radio surfing during my morning drive.
“We’ve enjoyed a mutually beneficial run with Colin for over a decade,” ESPN president John Skipper said in a released statement. “He came to national prominence on ESPN with his unique perspective on sports and society. Endings also bring new beginnings, for ESPN and Colin, and we thank him and wish him the best.”
As I’ve written before (click here), Cowherd inexplicably remained at ESPN for waaaaaay too long bellowing out incoherent sports ramblings, like a racist old man trying to return soup at a deli.
He picked fights with every good sports radio personality in the biz, including a man who’s on the Mount Rushmore of talking heads: Dan Patrick.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Cowherd’s idiocracy, I’ve linked more Cowherd write-ups below if you care to continue reading. For now, let’s all rejoice in the fact that ESPN is improving themselves by moving on from the Cowherd years.
