ESPN’s The Right Time with Bomani Jones Expands to Three Times per Week

Domonique Foxworth Joins New Friday Episode

Beginning this week, The Right Time with Bomani Jones podcast has expanded from two shows per week to three, publishing on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday basis.  The move follows a very strong 2020, despite the pandemic, in which it led ESPN’s original podcasts by nearly doubling its downloads.

The episodes that have been on Tuesdays, featuring Bomani’s commentary on the sports news of the week, his banter with producer Gabe Basayne, and the popular “If You Haven’t Heard” segment, is now on Mondays.  The Thursday interview-based podcasts are shifting to Wednesdays.

The new Friday addition will feature weekly conversations with The Undefeated’s Domonique Foxworth, whose previous visits have been some of the most popular episodes from both download and social media engagement perspective.  The former NFL cornerback – who was president of the NFL Players Association and later earned an MBA from Harvard – can be seen and heard across television, radio, podcasts and more.  That includes appearing twice per week on Highly Questionable and twice on Get Up.  He joined The Undefeated as a writer and contributor in 2016.

“The last year has been great for The Right Time, so I’m glad we can give more to our listeners,” said Jones.  “I also can’t wait to follow through on something those listeners have long wanted, a weekly spot with Domonique, one of the most intelligent and entertaining talents at this company.”

Foxworth added, “I’m grateful to be granted a seat on this rocket ship.”

It was 33 years at ESPN for me as of November 2019 (the only job I’ve ever had) after joining merely to help with the America’s Cup for three months at a robust $5.50 per hour. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals and Indy 500; Wimbledon (16 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, in addition to overseeing the Fan Relations, Archives and ESPNPressRoom.com, my main areas are tennis, ratings, and corporate communications documents, including ESPN’s history and growth.
