This has been a big summer for ESPN host Molly Qerim. She and colleague Jalen Rose got married last month, and now she’s been given a major new assignment.
Qerim, who is already the host of ESPN’s First Take, has been named the new host of the network’s popular Fantasy Football Now. She’ll begin her new role on Sunday, Sept. 9.
As the host of Fantasy Football Now, Qerim will work alongside Matthew Berry, Tim Hasselbeck, Field Yates and Stephania Bell. ESPN announced the news today.
The show will debut at 10 a.m. ET on Sept. 9.
“I’m going back to my roots!” Qerim said. “I’m really excited about hosting Fantasy Football Now. I’ve been playing fantasy since college and began covering fantasy football in 2006. The best part is getting to work with old friends again. I’m really grateful for the opportunity.”
Thank you…excited to join the team! https://t.co/li6gnUlxG3
