"A popular radio personality, who has developed his style in the middle of the Duke/North Carolina rivalry, Bomani identifies on a personal level with both fans as well as athletes. He is the perfect bridge between the stars of sports and the people who watch them...and talk about them...and we welcome him to our team."
A Georgia native, who grew up in Texas and now resides in North Carolina, Bomani Jones is an accomplished on-air personality and a respected writer. He is a contributor to ESPN.com's Page 2 and previously hosted The Three Hour Lunch Break and Sports Saturday for the McClatchey Broadcasting Company, operator of numerous sports talk radio stations in the state of North Carolina.
