ESPN Brings out Serena Williams, Paul Pierce to Showcase 'SportsCenter' Changes

Trey Wingo To Join Mike Golic On ESPN Radio's Morning Show This Fall

"ESPN RADIO has been entertaining and informing millions on their way to work every morning for years", said ESPN AUDIO SVP TRAUG KELLER.

Now Greenberg was on his own - and ready to pitch advertisers on his solo show premiering January 1, 2018.

"This trio will retain ESPN RADIO's leadership position in the morning drive space".

Golic: "The a year ago and a half have been somewhat interesting if not eyebrow-raising, as well".

Mike Greenberg, the long-time co-host of Mike and Mike, is reportedly moving away from the hit morning radio show to do a television talk show on the network.




We now know more about what the new daytime ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPN Radio schedules will look like, and they include a pair of new shows. Paul Pierce, the former National Basketball Association star, appeared ("I'm still pulling for the Celtics", he said), as did numerous network's biggest names, including Scott Van Pelt, Suzy Kolber, Jon Gruden and Mayne. ESPN formally announced several new shows - including a three-hour morning block with the longtime ESPN host Mike Greenberg, and one that will feature the commentators Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre. For me, it's not my story to tell.

"When they said they had this vision to do something totally new and different in the morning, and they started to explain to me what it was, and (producer) Connor (Schell) got involved, the more I thought about it, the more I thought, 'Yes, if there was ever anything worth making a change for, this sounds like a good bet'".

ESPN may be synonymous with sports, but plenty of stars have bailed for Fox Sports lately.

Sage Steele has also signed an extension and will host "SportsCenter" from 7 to 10 a.m. on ESPN2. That time slot opened up when ESPN promoted "His & Hers" co-hosts Michael Smith and Jemele Hill left to lead the 6 p.m. ET "SportsCenter". These will be shown "multiple times per hour" and will be brief "up-to-the-minute" news updates, similar to the "SportsCenter" updates already heard on ESPN Radio. He joined ESPN in November 1997 as an anchor for ESPNEWS and has served as host of NFL Live since its inception in 2003. He'll still be on the air with the same show, but ESPN personality Trey Wingo will be taking the place of Greenberg.
