Is Stephen A. Smith Returning To ESPN?

Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News reports ESPN is in talks with Stephen A. Smith on a deal that would have him hosting a radio show on ESPN 1050 in New York City.

“This is the first step to Stephen A getting back in the ESPN family, which means he’ll will also be doing television at some point,” a source told Raissman.

Smith left his radio gig at Fox Sports Radio at the end of last year. He previously hosted a radio show on ESPN 1050 with Brandon Tierney between 2005-2008.

While a return to radio wouldn’t be a huge surprise for the brash and outspoken Smith, I’m curious to see in what capacity ESPN would use him on television.

Too bad Rasho Nesterovic isn’t still in the NBA.
