ESPN revealed some changes that are in store for its coverage of the 2016 Scripps National Spelling Bee, which takes place Wednesday and Thursday, May 25-26, on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3.
New this year, SpellCheck will be used on the main feed, highlighting individual letters as the speller spells the word.
Also new this year is an enhanced version of the play-along feature that was previously introduced. As part of a second-screen experience, viewers will be given four multiple-choice options.
“SportsCenter’s” Kevin Negandhi will be the host this year.
