Tony Kornheiser Accepts Buyout Offer From Washington Post
Published May 14, 2008
Washington Post columnist Tony Kornheiser this morning on his radio show said that "he signed the papers" last night to take a buyout from the newspaper, according to Dan Steinberg of the WASHINGTON POST. Kornheiser said that he "still might contract with The Post to do his Talking Points videos and his Page 2 excerpts, and he said some people in the leadership asked him to stay but didn't really insist." Kornheiser has seven days to reconsider his decision, but he said, "I'll have somebody kidnap me and tie me down so I don't change my mind." Kornheiser will still appear on ESPN as an analyst for "MNF" and a co-host on "PTI" (WASHINGTONPOST.com, 5/14).
