In mid July Tony Kornheiser, one of the most recognizable and outspoken commentators in sports and entertainment announced on his nationally syndicated podcast he plans to work in conjunction with Your Own FM on a new streaming station.
The Long Island native hosted “The Tony Kornheiser Show” on radio across a host of stations in the Washington, DC area and on ESPN Radio beginning in 1992, and currently co-hosts one of the most popular sports programs of all time in PTI on ESPN since 2001 with Michael Wilbon.
He was also an analyst for ESPN's Monday Night Football from 2006 to 2008.
Kornheiser began his career as a writer for Newsday and The New York Times before joining The Washington Post in 1979 as a general assignment reporter in Style and Sports. He became a full-time sports columnist in 1984 until leaving The Post in 2012 with one of the most impressive resumes in journalism.
We are very excited to work with Tony and his crew to curate a station that reflects his tastes in music and honored to create and deliver the format.
Bruce Springsteen and wife Patti Scialfa joined together to perform two songs during the Jersey 4 Jersey COVID-19 relief telethon, which benefits the New Jersey Pandemic Relief Fund. “We’re here tonight dedicated to our healthcare workers and of those who’ve lost loved ones,” he said at the start of the show, “and those who are suffering and dying with this terrible disease in our beloved state.”
They began with “Land of Hope and Dreams,” a moving song about the power and resiliency of the human spirit that Springsteen wrote for the 1999 E Street Band reunion tour. It was followed by commentary and performances by everyone from Jon Stewart, Chris Rock and Stephen Colbert to Halsey and Charlie Puth, who played a cover of Springsteen’s 1973 tune “Growin’ Up” on the piano.
Near the end of the broadcast, Springsteen and Scialfa returned to sing his beloved version of the 1980 Tom Waits song, “Jersey Girl.” Unlike many past renditions of the song, including the famous one on the Live 1975–85 box set, he did not sing the bonus “little brat of yours” verse that he wrote himself. It’s the first time he’s performed the song in any capacity since 2016.
