ESPN TO DEBUT LIVE MORNING SPORTSCENTER

May 11, 2008

HANNAH STORM

Richard Deitsch of Sports Illustrated is reporting that ESPN is about to start a live weekday morning version of Sportscenter. The network has hired Hannah Storm to be the show’s lead anchor.  ESPN has never done live morning broadcasts of sports news. Instead, they’ve chosen to re-run the late night version of Sportscenter all morning long on a continual loop. SI says Hannah Storm will start her ESPN broadcasts “in a couple of months.”

Storm is quite a departure from the network’s recent female hires. She is a 45-year-old mother and a competent, qualified journalist. She is perky and cute not BATCRAP HOT. Lately ESPN has become The Worldwide Leader in hiring blonde hottie sideline reporters with little or no actual broadcast experience.

The start of a weekday Sportscenter might mean the final nail in the coffin of ESPN 2’s lame morning show First Take (formerly Cold Pizza.) Sportscenter will go head to head with First Take and SI.com says the revised Sportscenter in the morning (which will feature original content) is an effort by the network to “bolster its morning broadcasts.” That can’t be very good news for any First Take employees.

It’s enough to drive Dana Jacobsen to drink.

FAKE CONTROVERSY

April 25, 2008

Lots is being made of ESPN sideline hottie, Erin Andrews’, interview with Yankees pitcher Joba Chamberlain on Wednesday. The story goes Chamberlain said something SO DISGUSTING that Andrews recoils in horror. GREAT STORY! Unfortunately, it’s probably not true.

The alleged “sick comments” are not on tape. Plus, Andrews is still holding his arm after the “incident.”

It appears to simply be a case of a tv personality “turning off” her charm once she thought she was off camera.

It’s unbelievable that so much is being made of this with NO AUDIO. Still, the look on her face IS hilarious.

Coincidentally, Chamberlain was ROCKED for one of the few times in his brief career the next night.
