We’ve Taken Down the Forward Paywall: An Open Letter to Our ReadersRead Now

Maury Povich Buys a D.C. Bar

Two Jewish media stars walk into a bar…

…and buy it.

No joke: Sports commentator Tony Kornheiser and talk-show maven Maury Povich have purchased Chad’s, a popular hangout for Washington, D.C., media folk for decades.

The pair plans to upgrade the beer and wine menu, build a podcast studio for Kornheiser’s online chat show and ultimately rename Chad’s, according to Jewish Business News.

Povich, 77, has been a television fixture for half a century; D.C.-born Kornheiser’s been a longtime voice on ESPN.
