Washington is an ESPN breeding ground

Saturday, Bram Weinstein — formerly of ESPN 980 — anchored SportsCenter with Sara Walsh, formerly of WUSA. Sunday, Weinstein anchored ESPN’s signature TV show with Sage Steele, formerly of Comcast SportsNet. Then this week, he found out that WRC’s Lindsay Czarniak — his former karaoke partner at Tommy Joe’s in Bethesda — was headed north to join them in Bristol.

They won’t be alone. I don’t know how you’d measure such a thing, but I have to imagine that the D.C. market has been one of the biggest sources of ESPN talent in the country. Not even counting guys like Brett Haber and Dave Feldman, the number of people with D.C. ties working in ESPN editorial is sort of stunning.

How about this:

Tony Kornheiser (Washington Post), Michael Wilbon (Washington Post), Sage Steele (Comcast SportsNet), Bram Weinstein (ESPN 980), Sara Walsh (WUSA), Lindsay Czarniak (WRC), Norman Chad (Washington Post), Chris McKendry (WJLA), Michael Kim (News Channel 8), Mark Schlabach (Washington Post), Marc Stein (Washington Post), Tom Friend (Washington Post), Rachel Nichols (Washington Post), J.A. Adande (Washington Post), Jorge Arangure Jr. (Washington Post), Patrick Hruby (Washington Times), Heather Dinich (Washington Post), Ric Bucher (Washington Post), Eric Karabell (Washington Post), Howard Bryant (Washington Post), Scott Van Pelt (WTTG), Mike Patrick (WJLA), Pam Ward (WTEM) and Tim Kurkjian (Washington Star).

And that’s on about 15 minutes of research. Who am I forgetting?
