For those who live with a sports fan or who themselves click on ESPN as soon as they hit the door, next year promises a sea of brown faces on the early-evening edition of SportsCenter.
The day after Super Bowl LI, February 6, 2017, Michael Smith and Jemele Hill, current hosts of His & Hers, will be the new hosts of the 6 p.m. SportsCenter hour.
Smith and Hill, who have co-hosted His & Hers on ESPN2 since June of 2013, will replace Lindsay Czarniak, who will go on maternity leave in November and return next year in a new role, according to Variety. Both hosts have reportedly signed new, multi-year deals with the Walt Disney-owned sports network.
ESPN’s senior vice president of SportsCenter and news, Rob King, said Smith and Hill will focus on contextualizing the day’s sports headlines rather than just talking about breaking news, and the tone of the show will be more conversational.
