Beadle's Back: Host Officially Returns To ESPN Monday, Will Appear On "SportsNation"
Published March 3, 2014
TWITTER REAX: Beadle's return drew a number of comments on social media. ESPN Radio 970 Pittsburgh's Sean Gallagher tweeted, "Sportsnation's greatest shows will always be when Colin [Cowherd] and Beadle hosted. Chemistry was incredible." Bleacher Report's Ian Wharton: "Interesting that Michelle Beadle is returning to ESPN. Furthers my theory that these networks are wasting money by hiring 'big time' females." Blogger Keith Prime: "Beadle was great on ESPN. Great to have her back. NBC underutilizes another great talent. … I honestly think Beadle should have been Costas' understudy in Sochi. She's the perfect studio host for the social media age."
