ESPN is reportedly expected to make this personnel move.
With Michelle Beadle set to leave SportsNation to be a co-host on Mike Greenberg's new morning show, Get Up, a replacement is needed for the afternoon show based in Los Angeles.
The Big Lead is reporting that ESPN has the replacement lined up.
Ryan Glasspiegel reports that Cari Champion is "expected" to replace Beadle as the host of SportsNation.
From The Big Lead:
The deal is not finalized yet but all appearances are the program will head in that direction. The transition is likely still months away because the debut of the morning show has had construction delays and won’t happen until Spring 2018.
Currently, Cari hosts SportsCenter Coast to Coast with David Lloyd. That program will come to an end around the same time the Greeny/Beadle/Rose combination starts, making way for a show co-hosted by Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre.
ESPN's new morning show, Get Up, is set to debut sometime this spring and will air live from New York City.
