BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Birmingham sports-talk radio lightning rod Paul Finebaum will be packing his bags for Charlotte soon to join ESPN and the forthcoming SEC Network.
Finebaum, who has been on the radio in Birmingham since 1985, announced his plans last Tuesday, and he was at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn., on Thursday to meet with the staff there and to appear on "SportsCenter" and a few other ESPN radio and TV shows.
He and his wife, Linda Hudson, a doctor of internal medicine and chief of medicine at St. Vincent’s hospital here in Birmingham, then spent three days in Charlotte touring the city and looking for houses.
