GIVE THE PEOPLE SOMETHING TO WATCH TONIGHT: Our boy Michael Wilbon has signed a four-year, ~$8M deal with ESPN/ABC that will keep him on PTI, ABC's studio team for NBA games and have him do football analysis as well for the network.
As for the day job at WaPo, Wilbon is showing some serious loyalty, saying, “I might write columns for the Web. I might have a blog. I might do something with Tony [Kornheiser] on the Web. I’ll do whatever Don Graham and Len Downie want me to do. ESPN did not create the Wilbon-and-Kornheiser brand. The Post did.”
