Published June 14, 2000
At a promo shoot for ESPN, anchor Linda Cohn posed in a swimsuit sitting in a hot tub "sipping from a champagne glass on the lap" of Rams OT Orlando Pace, according to Steve Zipay of NEWSDAY, who writes, "The whole scene does nothing to improve the oft-maligned image of women sports journalists." Some photos were published in ESPN Magazine's May 15 issue. Zipay: "Much of what is shot for promos never airs, and some ESPN TV executives are annoyed that [ESPN Magazine] ran the picture" (NEWSDAY, 6/14).
