The previously-announced new ESPN2 TV show hosted by MIAMI HERALD columnist and LINCOLN FINANCIAL MEDIA Sports WAXY-A (790 THE TICKET)/MIAMI afternoon host DAN LE BATARD now has an official debut date. "DAN LE BATARD IS HIGHLY QUESTIONABLE" will air weekdays on ESPN2 at 4-4:30p (ET) starting MONDAY (9/12). The show will also feature LE BATARD's 72-year-old father GONZALO.
"We have worked closely with DAN and the show's producer ERIK RYDHOLM to make sure the program captures DAN's distinct personality and his ability to connect with sports fans across platforms, as he has demonstrated with his newspaper column and radio show," said MARCIA KEEGAN, VP of Production at ESPN. "Given the popularity of our afternoon lineup of discussion and debate shows, we know that our audience is drawn to accessible and engaging personalities so we expect DAN's smart yet irreverent take on sports combined with the often diverting and occasionally thoroughly pointless interaction with his father to make for an oddly compelling program. If nothing else, don't say we never take chances."
