Colin Cowherd’s final show as a host of SportsNation will air this evening at 6 ET on ESPN2.
Cowherd has been a co-host since the show launched more than three years ago. As the show is moving to Los Angeles with co-hosts Charissa Thompson and Marcellus Wiley, Cowherd will remain at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn. headquarters and focus on his nationally syndicated ESPN Radio show.
Front Row caught up with Whit Albohm, SportsNation’s producer, to get his thoughts on Colin’s farewell and the future of the show.
Do you have a favorite Colin moment on SportsNation?
There have been so many funny moments through the years with Colin that it was really hard to narrow it down. Today’s show will highlight the best of the best: from Colin getting pranked by Brock Lesnar to being mocked by Will Ferrell. It will showcase his greatest moments and his favorite clips from the last three-and-a-half years.
Does SportsNation have any type of special “year-end” show planned?
We do have a New Year’s show planned with Charissa and Marcellus. We’ll take a look back at our favorite jeers of 2012. It will be our first show from our new home in LA.
Will SportsNation change its format when the show relocate to LA?
We aren’t planning specific format changes but with the show moving to Los Angeles, the entertainment capital of the world, we’re hoping that provides the opportunity to work more celebrities and guests into the show.
