Bomani Jones & Gabe Kapler Named as Rising Stars in Sports Media for 2013


Bomani Jones and Gabe Kapler have been named to Awful Announcing's list of 13 Rising Stars in Sports Media for 2013. Bomani Jones - ESPN personality After bouncing from ESPN to SB Nation, Jones rejoined ESPN earlier this year, and is already making up for lost time. He's a co-host of Highly Questionable with Dan Le Batard and the chemistry between Jones, Le Batard, and Papi is undeniable. Jones also makes regular appearances on Around the Horn, and his young, alternative voice is a nice contrast to the majority of the older white panelists and voices elsewhere at ESPN. At only 33, he's still got the vast majority of his career in front of him and his journey to ESPN is a success story that could inspire any young blogger or writer out there. Gabe Kapler - FOX MLB Analyst Kapler has worn many hats over his career - player, manager, coach, columnist, and now, analyst on Fox Sports 1. Appearing primarily on Fox Sports Live, Kapler has been the lone baseball hire by Fox since the launch of Fox Sports 1, and he's seamlessly taken to his new role like a fish to water. Kapler has quickly become one of the best baseball analysts on any network, and he's been doing this for less than four months. He also occasionally writes columns for, and is showing himself to be a thoughtful and knowledgeable writer. [Awful Announcing]
