A MNF ESPN Conference call went down earlier today and the Leader introduced a new feature to the broadcast. PTI Halftime. It will be a 6-minute edition of the show, and really isn't a bad idea at all. So what's the problem? Tony Kornheiser had no idea this was happening until the conference today. Via Fanhouse....
It turns out that Kornheiser isn't sure how to feel about it either. ESPN announced the halftime PTI on a conference call to promote Monday Night Football today, and when I asked Kornheiser what we could expect from the halftime segment, he said, "This is the first I've heard we're doing it."Wow. Even though holding the details from Tony K is probably a good idea, it's still pretty crazy that they did. Also, everyone welcome one Mr. Michael Raymond Wilbon to the fray. Good times.
Jay Rothman, senior coordinating producer for Monday Night Football, said he knows exactly how PTI at halftime will work but that he's holding off on giving any details to Kornheiser.- MDS
