In the latest edition of ESPN the Magazine, basketball analyst and political pundit Stephen A. Smith’s new column debuted. In case you missed it, Smith’s radio show ended a few weeks back and there was wide speculation that we was done at tWWL. But he has a new contract and, among his new roles, he will be a featured columnist on ESPN.com and in The Mag. In a way, aside from his many television roles, Smith is getting back to his roots as a writer. Say what you want about him, but in his hey day, he was a very good reporter and columnist, particularly in Philly. And plus, another black columnist in a major media publication and online entity is a good thing.
