An ESPN sign hanging that's very old

Here's what the Worldwide Leader is replacing the show with.

ESPN's The Sports Reporters had been on-air for nearly 30 years. This morning, its final episode aired.

Moving forward, another show is getting the 9 a.m. E.T. timeslot.

Jeremy Schapp and Bob Ley will host a Sunday morning edition of E:60 starting next weekend.

The hour-long show that focuses on award-winning storytelling, will have its first Sunday morning episode on May 14.

Here's a description of what the show will entail, from ESPN:

The live show format will allow E:60 the opportunity to react to breaking news and shows will include a mix of profiles, investigations, interviews, global issues, stories that show why sports matter and quirky tales from off the beaten path. The show’s hosts will lead to features and then extend the conversation with correspondents and the production team.

Regular features will include:

  • The Take: Schaap and Ley commentary, storytelling and perspective.
  • ICYMI: The most bizarre/unusual piece of sports video from the week.
  • The sports fact or statistic of the week.
  • The Calendar: Looking ahead to the week’s key, interesting and obscure sports events.
  • The Social Story: Best fan-generated video of the week from the E:60 Social Team

The newsmagazine-style show has been on the air since October 2007.
