ESPN’s Kornheiser suspended for Storm remarks

'PTI' host commented on SportsCenter anchor's clothing

BRISTOL, Conn. (AP) — ESPN has suspended host Tony Kornheiser from his television talk show Pardon the Interruption for comments he made on the radio last week about SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm’s clothing.

Kornheiser announced the suspension on his Washington D.C. radio show Tuesday morning, calling his remarks about Storm intemperate and stupid.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz, while confirming the suspension, declined to say how long the suspension would be. He said the network would likely have a statement later Tuesday.

Kornheiser described an outfit Storm was wearing at ESPN last week as horrifying, saying her shirt was too tight and looked “like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body.”

Kornheiser said he had called Storm to personally apologize for the remarks.
