A new TV show is coming to ESPN. It will feature a very big name as host.
The Worldwide Leader announced this morning that a special interview show is coming to the network. It will be hosted by former MLB star and current Sunday Night Baseball broadcaster Alex Rodriguez.
The show, Pivot with Alex Rodriguez, will air during the MLB season. It will be a four-part special.
“ESPN’s track record of compelling, original features makes it the natural partner for Pivot. Change can be good, and even necessary, for athletes facing their most difficult moments. However, I know firsthand how challenging it can be to turn the lens inward while living life in the public arena. I’m looking forward to uncovering personal stories the world deserves to hear, while sharing the lessons I’ve learned—sometimes through the hard way,” Rodriguez said.
Here are the details, from ESPN:
ESPN and Alex Rodriguez, one of the greatest Major League Baseball players ever, are teaming up to present a special series called Pivot with Alex Rodriguez in 2018. The four-part series will air on ESPN and ESPN Deportes during the MLB regular season. Rodriguez will serve as the executive producer and host for Pivot.
In each episode of Pivot, Rodriguez will conduct an in-depth, one-on-one interview with a current or former star athlete who is navigating through obstacles in their life and career. Rodriguez will use his personal experiences to lead an unfiltered, dynamic discussion about the changing phenomenon of life in the public eye and to help these athletes share their side of the story regarding their challenges. He will conduct these interviews in an environment relevant to each athlete’s personal story.
Rodriguez has become one of the best analysts in baseball. He’s been a fantastic addition to the Sunday Night Baseball booth.
An official premiere date for Rodriguez’s show has yet to be announced. Stay tuned.
