FOX Sports 1 is bringing out all the big guns for their "let's take on ESPN" network, which will begin its campaign to threaten the Worldwide Leader on August 17th. For their flagship show, "Fox Sports Live," they've brought together three names that you probably didn't think you'd be saying in the same sentence. Via TheWrap:
Fox Sports 1 announced the "starting five" for its nightly flagship show, "Fox Sports Live" on Thursday.
Sports personality Charissa Thompson (previously of ESPN), former NBA great Gary Payton and retired NFL players Donovan McNabb and Ephraim Salaam will join tennis star Andy Roddick in studio for opinions and analysis.
“We are so excited to welcome Gary, Donovan and Ephraim to FOX Sports and we’re thrilled to have Charissa back in the family,” said Fox Sports Executive Vice President, Studio Production, Scott Ackerson.
He continued, "The group officially unveiled today, with Andy, represents some of the best in their fields, and we are confident that they’ll provide a fresh, unique perspective to the sports news of the day, creating engaging and entertaining television.”
If the show comes anywhere close to matching the other entertaining performances of Andy Roddick (see below), I say we have ourselves a keeper.
