“Inbox: ESPN veterans Jemele Hill and Cari Champion will host a weekly show for the CNN+ streaming service. Covers sports, entertainment, politics and culture,” Weprin tweeted. 

Unsurprisingly, sports fans responded to this announcement from Weprin.

"Finally, never thought I'd see the day this niche was filled," one fan said.

"How much would somebody have to pay you," another fan tweeted. "Serious question."

"Wow sports, entertainment, politics AND culture?! That's never been done before," a third fan tweeted.

Although some fans aren't excited about this upcoming show, Champion is very eager to get this program started.

“I’m so thrilled to join CNN+. The beauty and authenticity of my friendship with Jemele has always been at the heart of our creative partnership,” said Champion. “I couldn’t be more excited to be part of the CNN family and share our brand of ‘speakeasy’ with the world."
