As ESPN has continued to adapt its daily lineup to best serve fans with many major sports on hold, it has provided unique opportunities for on-air personalities to thrive in new ways by contributing to other shows or different platforms.
Recently, some of the anchors of ESPN’s marquee news and information show SportsCenter, have become regulars on ESPN Radio’s weekend programming. Saturday, Randy Scott and Nicole Briscoe will host Dari & Mel (10 a.m.-1 p.m. ET); Sunday, June 21, Michael Eaves will co-host GameNight with Taylor Twellman (9-11 p.m.).
“The dedicated efforts that each of our multi-talented SportsCenter hosts put into their TV work behind the scenes and on-air has enabled them to transition seamlessly to their radio assignments. With gusto, lots of research and fun, they’ve been able to regularly engage with sports fans in a meaningful, new way during this time,” said Mike Urrunaga, ESPN Radio producer.
“Credit coordinating producer Amanda Gifford, senior coordinating producer Jack Obringer and all the great teamwork from the show producers that have made this a really positive experience for our listeners.”
