One of ESPN’s longest-running TV shows aired its final episode this morning.
After nearly 30 years on-air, ESPN’s The Sports Reporters aired its final episode this morning.
The long-running TV show featuring sports reporters from across the country discussing the week’s biggest topics has been cancelled by ESPN.
Today’s final episode featured Mike Lupica, Bob Ryan, Mitch Albom, and William C. Rhoden.
Taking its place will be E:60, a sports journalism-focused show that will air weekly at 9 a.m. E.T.
E:60, ESPN’s award-winning newsmagazine program, will begin a new era on Sunday, May 14, at 9 a.m. ET with the launch of its weekly Sunday morning edition. The new program will mark the first time E:60 will air live and on a year-round basis in a regular timeslot.
With hosts Jeremy Schaap and Bob Ley from a dedicated new studio in ESPN’s state-of-the-art Digital Center DC-2, the program continues E:60’s signature storytelling – delivering viewers the biggest names and the best stories in sports. On Sunday mornings, the new E:60 will also introduce a new and diverse team of journalists and feature stories from ESPN’s award-winning Outside the Lines team. The show, which will celebrate its 10th anniversary in October, has received 11 Emmy Awards, 60 Sports Emmy nominations, seven Edward R. Murrow awards and the RFK Journalism Award, among many other honors for its incisive storytelling and groundbreaking journalism.
E:60 has been on the air since 2007.
