Lets put it this way. After reading her book I now know things about Linda Cohn I couldn’t even have suspected from roughly 1000 hours of SportsCenters. And I have reached the following conclusion: Linda is the top Cohn-Head since Larraine Newman.
Kevin Cronin | Lead Vocalist for REO Speedwagon- -
Linda Cohn is far hotter than her ‘girl in the locker room’ persona would suggest. I’ve been with her backstage at a rock and roll show….I know.
Michael Wilbon | Co-host of ESPN & Sports Columnist for The Washington Post- -
Cohn-Head is a candid, sweet, humorous and intensely personal story of one of America’s most recognized and well-liked sports media personalities. Linda Cohn is courageous enough to be introspective in a way that gives us insight into her personal evolution, from the difficulty of busting into the boy’s club that is the sports television industry to battling through her inner conflicts to become a mother and role model. The kind of juggling act her male colleagues can observe but never experience.
Tim Kurkjian | ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” Analyst & Author- -
Linda Cohn has been instrumental in the advancement of women in the media. Her wonderful book tells her story so well ESPN’s “Baseball Tonight” analyst, Author of Is This a Great Game, or What?

Linda Cohn grew up on Long Island yet becomes a Big New York Rangers fan, then she goes to college at the snowiest place on earth where she excels as a goaltender. Out of college she gets into the man’s world of TV sports and becomes a star. Who wouldn’t want to read about this lady
Bill Walton |Hall of Fame Basketball Player & ABC/ESPN sports commentator- -
Wow!!! Linda Cohn’s fascinating narrative of life and love in the testosterone driven world of American sports and ESPN is an excellent tale of one dynamic woman’s charging crusade to have it her way. Cohn-Head bares it all personally and professionally; from battles won and lost, to dreams realized and shattered. As with all things Linda Cohn, we can’t wait for what’s next, and Cohn-Head is our time traveling spaceship with Linda at the controls…Hold on everybody and enjoy the ride!!!

“Fast, funny, entertaining and revealing. The best part? The unavoidable image in the reader’s mind of Linda herself machine-gunning her own story at you like a fascinating edition of Sportscenter…Dah Dah Dah, Dah Dah Dah.”
