Not sure if its a Katie Nolan problem or an industry problem but just seems like the women that networks try to jump start, in non reporter roles, are trying to be another Michelle Beadle. Problem is they come off as weak imitators. One ESPN has been pushing more lately is Sarah Spain. She has been a update anchor on ESPN 1000 in Chicago for almost 5 years. Recently she has been doing some commentary for Sports Center, filled in on that horrible His and Hers show and they recently gave her a national weekend radio show. She used to be pretty good but ever since she has been trying to up her profile she has come off as a real phony.

@steve3389 @Jcool01 If the first two videos posted on the article are any indication this show would not be enjoyable to me.
I have never seen this show but from reading this it seems like a train wreak and since Awful Announcing really likes Katie Nolan they seem to be trying to come up with things to be positive about such as "seems like she can carry a half hour show", "it’s still a breath of fresh air" and "early signs are encouraging". FYI you can still like the person and hate the show. Being critical doesn't mean you cant like the personality anymore.
Are we sure that Peter King video was a "viral hit"??? I just looked... It has 21,000 views which is nothing for a youtube video. She has 84,000 twitter followers so not even half of them bothered to watch it.

I didn't even know she had a show, i knew she worked for CNN now, but not that she had a show. I think this is more on CNN then Nichols.

@Phive Not sure MLB, NFL and NBA would want them doing that.

With ratings so low not sure why cable/dish companies would give them a higher fee. Seems like this might just be spin by Fox to show confidence in the network.

@jpk0721 @Jcool01 Her statement doesn't make any kind of point and is incredibly vague. She called out Websites/Blogs that "constantly disrespect women & objectify their bodies". Does she mean playboy? Maxim? The Chive? The Superficial? Is she calling out a specific writer on a blog/site? Does she mean that if a website does that kind of thing they cant also be against domestic violence? Did she do a 10 second glance at these sites and make up her mind or is this a thoroughly researched opinion? This is the same as uniformed people calling out violent video game as the cause of violence in society.

Shockingly Ponder is quiet on the Stephen A Smith comments. Seems only Michelle Beadle has the guts to say anything.
"Sam Ponder tried to open up a grown-up conversation about the place of women in the online sports culture." She did? When? Nothing she said even remotely comes close to that? You guys are usually really good with this stuff but this time you are just reaching. As someone who likes Ponder i was a little disappointed in her tweet. Why cant she be wrong and the nut jobs who responded also be wrong? Why are you giving her a pass based on internet comments?
I hate most of what Skip Bayless says and cant stand First Take but this isn't close to being troll Bayless. But i guess when you need sites hits he is an easy target to get people to click on the link.

The worst part is he doesn't even call him Magic, he seems to be the only one to call him Earvin. Like i'm such good friends with him that i don't have to call him what everyone else does.

Wilbon sold himself out when he started doing the NBA pregame. He used to be one of the best on ESPN but is now almost gotten unwatchable on PTI. The only thing saving that show is Tony Kornheiser and his I don't give a f**k attitude. Also anyone else really annoyed when you see him doing NBA pregame and he calls Magic, Earvin? He is the only one to do it on the set. I know its his name but its just bad.
