According to ESPN executives, sports is the perfect fodder for lively debate and a little shouting.

So come Sept. 30, ESPN is launching its second talk-radio-style show, Around the Horn.

The daily, half-hour show features five sportswriters from across the country weighing in on the top sports news.

An in-studio host (the search is still on) will referee.

"We're turning the 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. hour into a place for lively, hot-topic debate," senior vice president of programming Mark Shapiro said. "We'll let the newspaper guys go at it."

Around the Horn will air at 5 p.m. EST, leading into ESPN's popular Pardon the Interruption, a face-off between Washington Post columnists Tony Kornheiser and Mike Wilbon, at 5:40 p.m.
