I'm listening to the replay of Jimmie Johnson's show on XM right now.  Marty Smith is the co-host and they just mentioned that he is going to work for ESPN next year.  They really weren't clear about what his role will be, but did say people were writing him about how he just "disappeared from NASCAR on-line," and he did state is now off that site since announcing his new deal with ESPN.  So it sounds like he'll be working on some of ESPN's NASCAR web stuff next year.  Frankly, I'm just relieved the rumors that he was going to be a pit reporter on the TV broadcasts have turned out to be false.  

Guy still represents the hip, young-punk demographic that I can't stand.

Johnson and Chad Knaus are now "grilling" Smith about him leaving Turner Sports kind of like he would do to drivers and crew chiefs and that is really funny.   :lol:

Edit:  Okay, they just went off the air and Smith said "my job will mainly be TV..." but something about the web site too, so I have no idea what he'll actually be doing.  Possibly that new nightly show on ESPN hosted by Brad Daughety.   :?   Also, Johnson and Knaus were commenting on the ESPN pit reporter, Jamie Little's, looks.  I have no idea who she is, but it sounded like they thought she was very attractive.  Let's hope she's also a competent reporter...

I have a feeling that competence is that last thing they're worrying about.

Marty Smith had a regular colunm at nascar.com.  He's a tall, red-headed guy with punky spiky hair.  He's also the one that did those totally obnoxious Nesthell ads where he yelled "JOOON-YER:.

Being 22 I can say that their attempts to appeal to the younger generation don't work... at least with myself. I never sat through an entire episode of NASCAR Nation (either version), I have barely watched Inside Nextel Cup since Allen and Johnny left and I frequently watched Speed News yet I have never sat down and watched The Speed Report yet. Maybe it's just me...

Judging from the overall ratings for the races this year, I don't think the 18 - 34 age group is the only one that they're missing.

I am still confused.  Marty Snider is which one?  The redhead who wrote for Nascar.com?  Marty Smith is the one who used to be on pit road sometimes?  And which one was it that said "Joooonnerrrrr"?

Somebody, please clarify for me, please...... :?

Marty Snyder is on pitroad for NBC/TNT while Marty Smith wrote for NASCAR.com. Marty Snyder also contributes live videos to NASCAR.com but thats beside the point and will probably confuse everyone further.

Actually the pit reporter spells his name "Snider."  I know because I mispelled it once in a review and some family member of his wrote to correct me.   :shock:

Marty Smith has indeed joined ESPN.  His debut was on Monday's Cold Pizza, which actually airs on ESPN2.  It was a discussion of NASCAR news and issues which is on every Monday.  Previously, the network had spoken to David Poole of the Charlotte Observer and Tribune's Ed Hinton, among others.
