ESPN announced at today’s Upfront presentation that Mike Greenberg’s new morning show will premiere on January 1, 2018. The weekday program will originate from a studio in Manhattan and will air live from 7-10 a.m. ET on ESPN, re-airing each day at 10 a.m. ET on ESPN2.
“One of the many benefits of working at ESPN is that change and evolution are in our DNA,” said Greenberg. “My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day’s sports stories will be a great new challenge.”
Elements of the show are currently in development, but the program will feature a lively mix of news, opinion and analysis. Greenberg will be joined by several full-time co-hosts and a rotation of various guests and expert contributors, ensuring the top sports stories of the day are tackled from a wide range of viewpoints.
Connor Schell, senior vice president, original content, said: “People have a lot of options in the morning and we want to develop a show that will entertain and engage our fans so they can start each day connected to the sports they love. As we continue to expand our content offerings, we are excited by the opportunity to create something truly unique with Mike.”
