Bomani Jones Prepared For Life After The Score

Bomani Jones might want to avoid taking a summer vacation next year.

For the second time in three years, Jones has returned from his annual R&R to find out the radio station he was employed by was going under.

Despite The Score Satellite Radio signing off for good on Sept. 1, The Morning Jones host was in relatively high spirits when SportsNewser spoke to him Tuesday night.

“Well, it wasn’t pleasant news. I was shocked,” Jones said. “You don’t expect this to happen. I got experience with this. It’s kind of shocking, but at the same time, I’m going to try to figure out what to do next.”

For the fans of his morning sports talk show who are wondering if The Morning Jones host has looked into starting a podcast network, Jones is exploring his options.

“I have certainly thought about it,” Jones added. “I don’t know too much about the logistics but I have some guys that are looking into it.”

What’s next for the Around the Horn and Jim Rome is Burning regular?

“Is the next thing radio? Probably … I suppose. There are a lot of options on how to do things in a multimedia universe. If the best situation is writing, then I’ll write. If it’s radio, then radio. I’m very excited personally about what’s possible in the current landscape for me the way things are.”
