The latest news, highlights and inside information from every corner of the sports world is presented each day on "SportsCenter," ESPN's first-ever program when the network debuted in September of 1979. The flagship series airs an evening edition and a brand new midnight show each weekday before the stage is cleared for a live "SportsCenter" morning block that emphasizes fast-paced, highlights-driven reports and what's new on social media platforms.
While "SportsNation" is hosted by Michelle Beadle and Marcellus Wiley, it's really powered by the people. The topics covered in this hourlong weekday show are chosen by fans via ESPN.com's SportsNation site, and viewers are able to interact with the hosts before, during and after the show by email, text, Twitter or just making a phone call. Included is discussion of the smaller stories that people are taking about on the Internet but often aren't seen on TV.
Sportswriter-turned-TV personality Skip Bayless knows a thing or two about sports debates after participating in them for more than a decade at a competing network's morning show. Now at FS1, he gets top billing on "Skip and Shannon: Undisputed," a daily show that sees Bayless offering his hot takes on the latest sports news opposite Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Shannon Sharpe, who expands his horizons beyond just pigskin. Joy Taylor moderates and must keep things under control when the debates get heated.
Hosted by Tony Reali in the ESPN studio and joined via satellite by four sports reporters from across the country, the team debates popular sports stories. Reali acts as moderator, giving points for well-made arguments and deducting points for those who inspire him to hit the "mute" button. At the end of the show, whomever Reali deems the winner has 30 seconds without interruption to voice their final opinions on any topic they want.
The debate is the story in this fast-paced, half-hour series hosted by former Washington Post sportswriters Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. The pair engage in high-energy discussions, conduct interviews and often argue over topics not even related to sports. Other sports reporters appear as guests and offer opinions on the top stories of the day.
Hosted by Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, this weekday morning broadcast takes viewers inside their sports talk radio show. The simulcast features interviews, breaking news, analysis and opinion. Mike and Mike have been broadcasting their morning-drive show since January 2000, and four years later it began airing on television.
Veteran Miami Herald columnist and radio host Dan Le Batard leads a humorous, critical and sometimes controversial discussion of the hot sports topics of the day, from the Clevelander Hotel in Miami Beach. Known as a thoughtful and witty contrarian, Le Batard is not afraid to speak his mind and let his innate Cuban-American influences shine through, which is apparent in the fast-paced show. He's joined on each 30-minute episode by his father, Gonzalo "Papi" Le Batard.
