ESPN2 "FIRST TAKE" moderator CARI CHAMPION will host a new podcast for ESPN AUDIO starting THURSDAY (4/30). "espnW PRESENTS: BE HONEST WITH CARI CHAMPION" is an interview show that will feature athletes, celebrities, and ESPN RADIO and TV and espnW personalities, with the first edition offering an interview by CHAMPION and ESPN SPORTSCENTER anchor LINDA COHN with actor MICHAEL RAPPAPORT, talking about his feud with SPIKE LEE and the FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR.-MANNY PACQUIAO fight.
CHAMPION said, "My hope with BE HONEST is to have a platform that allows me to share not only my experiences and stories, but those of my guests, to shine a light on the intersection of culture and sport. The podcast will use sports as a way to communicate about day-to-day issues -- light-hearted and serious. I'm excited to have the chance to present my unique voice in a world with so many opinions."
