A special event will be held this morning at ESPN’s Bristol, Conn. headquarters to mark the ceremonial opening of the company’s 194,000 square foot, five-studio media facility, Digital Center 2. ESPN3 will air the event – including a special first look at the studio that will soon be the new home of SportsCenter – beginning at 10:45 a.m. ET. (Select portions of this Thursday’s #SCMediaDay will also air on ESPN3, beginning at 11:15 a.m.)

Scheduled to be on hand for today’s “Fiber Cutting” (replacing the traditional ribbon cutting with some of the 1,100 miles of fiber optic cable used in the building) are Connecticut governor, Dan Malloy; ESPN President John Skipper, Congressman John Larson (D-CT) and emcee for the event, SportsCenter anchor Sara Walsh. She recently agreed to a long-term extension with the network.

DC-2 will not only be home to SportsCenter, it will also make room later this summer for all of ESPN’s NFL studio programming, including including Sunday NFL Countdown, Monday Night Countdown, NFL Live, NFL Insiders and NFL PrimeTime.

And now some of what you may have missed over the weekend:
