ESPN Signs Bomani Jones to Multi-Year Extension
ESPN has signed Bomani Jones, one of the most distinct voices on radio and television whose commentary and opinions resonate with a diverse audience, to a multi-year extension. Jones, who joined ESPN full time in 2013, will continue to host The Right Time with Bomani Jones on ESPN Radio weekdays from 4 – 7 p.m. ET. He will also remain co-host of Highly Questionable, with Dan Le Batard and Papi, weekdays on ESPN at 4:30 p.m. Additional projects featuring Jones will be developed.
“I’m really happy to continue my relationship with ESPN,” said Jones. “I’ve spent the last three-and-a-half years working with some of the best and brightest people in sports, and it’s great to know that will continue. More than that, I’m excited about everything that will be possible in the next few years on television and continuing to build The Right Time on ESPN Radio.”
Traug Keller, senior vice president, ESPN business divisions, added, “Bomani Jones is so much more than another sports radio and television host. He brings a depth and perspective to the conversation that is singularly unique. It is a privilege to announce we are extending and building our relationship with Bomani.”
Jones has been a fulltime co-host of Highly Questionable since May of 2013. In March of 2015, ESPN Radio launched The Right Time with Bomani Jones, which allows Jones, in his entertaining and humorous manner, to focus on sports commentary and a frank discussion of social topics, while engaging in compelling dialog with his guests.
Jones has also regularly appeared as a panelist on ESPN’s Around the Horn and has appeared on other ESPN programs including SportsCenter, First Take and Outside the Lines. He sometimes joins Dan Le Batard on ESPN Radio’s The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz. Jones started his relationship with ESPN as a columnist for ESPN.com.
