A new show is coming to ESPN.
Fantasy football has become a polarizing topic across the sports community over the last 20 years. Millions of people across the U.S. partake in fantasy football leagues, including on the ESPN platform.
Now, it looks like ESPN is taking advantage of that audience.
According to Variety, ESPN fantasy football analyst Matthew Berry will host a show to be named The Fantasy Show, that will air weekdays on ESPN2 during football season.
From the report:
“The Fantasy Show,” to run Monday through Friday, will feature Berry, a noted fantasy-sports expert who’s worked at ESPN for more than 10 years, analyzing the day’s news and developments. That will launch Aug. 1 initially on the ESPN App and WatchESPN digital video platforms, leading up to a reprise of the 28-hour “ESPN Fantasy Football Marathon” Aug. 14-15 across multiple programs on ESPN networks. Following the marathon programming block, “The Fantasy Show” will make its TV premiere on ESPN2 and will run through the rest of the NFL’s 2017-18 season.
The fantasy football community finally has a show of their own. It looks like ESPN is trying something different after going through a hefty round of layoffs.
