In a male-dominated industry, even with women making huge strides there are still women like Michelle Sturino telling their tales, and the fact that Rogers Sportsnet Fan 590 still has no female hosts it is absolutely stunning (in a great way) that Linda Cohn is ESPN’s longest-tenured SportsCenter anchor and in early 2016 was recognized for anchoring her 5,000th SportsCenter, the most of any anchor in ESPN history.
Linda has earned all of her stripes, she rose through the ranks, paying cameramen chocolate chip cookies to help her record demo tapes. Having played high school hockey she has been a fan of and an ambassador for the game throughout her ESPN career hosting In the Crease, a nightly hockey program on ESPN+ during the NHL season.
Linda also currently hosts her own show on Mad Dog 82, on XM Radio.
In 2017, Linda was inducted into the National Sports Media Association (NSMA) Hall of Fame.
Linda and Jonah talk about Linda’s career with a keep eye on hockey and finally the Seattle Kraken and the draft fiasco surrounding the Arizona Coyotes.
