Sports talk station ESPN 980 announced that Kornheiser’s final show will later this month. The ESPN personality who co-stars with Michael Wilbon on “Pardon the Interruption” said he will be launching a podcast in September.

Kornheiser was part of WTEM’s original lineup in 1992 when he was a columnist for The Washington Post.
