Tom Pelissero has confirmed that he is leaving ESPN 1500 radio for a gig covering the NFL with USA Today. On Tuesday morning he tweeted:
Pelissero has been a senior editor at 1500 covering the Vikings since 2010, the Pioneer Press notes.
Pelissero had hosted a show on 1500 from 6-8 p.m., and he has been a co-host with Jim Souhan on a Sunday morning talk show. In his bio, he talks about the most memorable sporting events he has attended (among them: Twins clinching a tie for the AL West title in 1987), as well as which websites he checks most often each day.
