Bomani Jones signs new deal with ESPN

The Around the Horn and Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable contributor was part of a bidding war between ESPN and Fox Sports 1.

The latest bidding war between ESPN and the upstart Fox Sports 1 has gone to the Worldwide Leader. Bomani Jones has signed with ESPN in a four-year deal finalized on Thursday, according to sources close to the situation.

Jones had been negotiating with Fox for some time before ESPN made a late push to keep Jones, a frequent Around the Horn panelist and guest on Dan Le Batard is Highly Questionable, on the network for the immediate future.

His deal with ESPN will include all media, including online, radio, and television. His exact role at the network is undetermined, but continued work with Le Batard's show in Miami and further appearances on ATH seem likely bets for the present.

Prior to joining ESPN, Jones worked for SBNation.com, The Score, and wrote for ESPN.com while working on North Carolina talk radio.
