There are rumblings, and then there is thunder. Tony Kornheiser, the beloved media mainstay in the local market and one half of the international sports supernova that is Pardon the Interruption, is coming back to local radio on/about Sept. 8 with WTEM ESPN 980.

And this means that Daniel Snyder scores a big one in his effort to stave off the upstart WJFK 106.7 all—sports format, which I predicted would eliminate 980 in a matter of seconds.

Good for T.K. He needs to have a local voice to use D.C. sports as a punching bag for logical thought processes. At the same time, WJFK, which has seen mixed reviews of its new offerings, has much to do to prepare for the return of the T.K.

Perhaps firing the Junkies would be a good place to begin.
