ESPN Names ‘SportsCenter’ A.M. Lineup

Jun 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ESPN unveiled its new morning-shift lineup of anchors on “SportsCenter.”
The sports cable network said additional coffee will be ordered for Steve Berthiaume, Linda Cohn, Josh Elliott, Robert Flores and Chris McKendry, who have been working other editions of “SportsCenter.” They’ll be joined by Hannah Storm, who came to ESPN to be a part of the new, live daytime version of “SportsCenter.” That launches Aug. 11, the opening week of the Beijing Olympics on NBC.
ESPN also said Sage Steele will present news updates on “SportsCenter” throughout the 6 a.m. to noon ET block.
“The depth and talent of our existing ‘SportsCenter’ anchor team ensures the daily ‘SportsCenter’” will meet the high standard set by its nightly predecessor,” Norby Williamson, executive VP for production, said in a statement. “Producing nine additional hours of live “SportsCenter” illustrates our commitment to satisfying fans’ needs for sports news that is immediate, interactive and entertaining.”

  1. Wonder if Sage will still do SportsCenter breaks during “Mike and Mike” on ESPN2?

  2. M&M’s ESPN2 simulcast took a big step back when it stopped being “a radio show that’s also on TV” and became “a TV show that’s also on radio.” If they were to bring back the Bob Picozzi radio updates, that would be fine by me. He’s a better writer than Sage can ever hope to be.

  3. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
