In 1991, Kornheiser created a string of now-famous Bandwagon[4] columns to describe the Washington Redskins' incredible Super Bowl run that year. He started the idea when the Washington Redskins trounced the Detroit Lions 45-0. He officially unveiled the first Bandwagon column when the Redskins were 4-0. From then on, the Bandwagon column appeared weekly. When the Redskins advanced to Super Bowl XXVI, Kornheiser and his Post colleagues Jeanne McManus and Norman Chad rode a 33-foot recreational vehicle decorated as the Bandwagon for a 1,200-mile journey to Minneapolis, MN.[5] This article needs additional references or sources to facilitate its verification. ...

In the 1990s, Kornheiser usually wrote three columns per week, which were a Tuesday column and a Thursday column in the Sports Section and a Sunday column in the Style Section. Because of his work on both radio and Pardon the Interruption, he stopped writing Style Section columns and only wrote one column a week. His last Style Section column was published on September 30, 2001.[6] His three books, Pumping Irony, Bald as I Wanna Be and I'm Back for More Cash, are the compilations of his Style Section columns.

In 2005, Kornheiser started to write short columns called A Few Choice Words with his photo in the Post's Sports Section. These short, sports-related columns appear on the 2nd page of the Post's Sports section and are much shorter than the full-length columns Kornheiser used to write for the paper. This is the first time The Washington Post posts a columnist's photo beside his column. He calls these short columns "columnettes". He usually writes three "columnettes" per week unless he has other duties. He did not write columns between April 26, 2006 and August 7, 2006 to prepare as an analyst of ESPN's Monday Night Football.

Monday Night Football

Main article: Monday Night Football

When Monday Night Football moved from ABC to ESPN, Kornheiser received and accepted an offer to be a color analyst on Monday Night Football in early 2006. He was originally passed over in favor of Sunday Night Football commentator Joe Theismann; however, when play-by-play man Al Michaels left ABC/ESPN, Kornheiser was brought in alongside Theismann and new play-by-play announcer Mike Tirico.

Unlike Wilbon, Kornheiser does most episodes of PTI in-studio due to his self-admitted fear of flying. Prior to joining MNF, his last trips outside of the studio were to cover Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans and to attend the NFL owners meetings in Orlando in 2006; Kornheiser both times travelled via train, though returned from the Orlando trip via airplane. On the April 6, 2006 edition of PTI, he expressed his dismay at the amount of travel required for MNF. Though he has mentioned on his radio program that he is taking steps to overcome his aviophobia, he in fact spent a five-week period on the road travelling to mainly western MNF sites, doing PTI via satellite.

His first broadcast as an analyst was the preseason game between the Oakland Raiders and the Minnesota Vikings at the Metrodome in Minneapolis on August 14, 2006. Towards the end of that game, Kornheiser complained that it was "way past his bedtime" and praised Vikings coach Brad Childress for electing not to go for a game-tying field goal so he could get home faster (and because no Vikings players would get hurt that way.)

After that broadcast, Paul Farhi of The Washington Post wrote a harsh review on Kornheiser the next day.[13] The review prompted Kornheiser to say that Farhi was a "two-bit weasel slug" and his own newspaper had back-stabbed him during an interview on The Dan Patrick Show on August 15, 2006. His response generated more criticism from The Washington Post[14] and other media outlets. The Washington Post is the largest newspaper in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. ...

The New York Times's David Carr detailed a litany of Kornheiser "kiss up/kick down" machinations In Washington.[15]


In the same interview with Dan Patrick, Kornheiser lashed out against Mike and Mike in the Morning's Mike Golic. He took offense at Golic's saying that Kornheiser's appearance on Monday Night Football was "fine". Kornheiser said, "I just want to wring Golic's neck and hang him up over the back of a shower rod like a duck."[15] Daniel Patrick Pugh (born May 15, 1956), better known as Dan Patrick, is an American sportscaster from Mason, Ohio. ...

The 2004-2005 sitcom Listen Up, which aired on CBS, was based on Kornheiser's life.

Tony Kornheiser's promising Monday Night Football debut. - By Robert Weintraub - Slate Magazine (1001 words)
Kornheiser, who's teaming up with Mike Tirico and Joe Theismann for the glamour telecast, has spent the last few weeks setting the bar as low as possible by playing the schlemiel role to the hilt.
But Kornheiser also maintains a distrust of corporate authority and is unafraid to bite the hand that feeds, as proved by his Lettermanesque baiting of his ESPN Radio bosses until the partnership ended nonamicably in 2004.
Kornheiser is meant to be the New Cosell, but play-by-play man Tirico did a fair impersonation himself last night.
Tony Kornheiser: Information from Answers.com (1494 words)
Kornheiser began his career in New York City after his graduation with a degree in English from Harpur College, now Binghamton University, in 1970.
In the 1990s, Kornheiser usually wrote three columns per week, which were a Tuesday column and a Thursday column in the Sports Section and a Sunday column in the Style Section.
Kornheiser was a finalist for the 1997 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary.
