I can’t remember the last time I caught the Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year’s Day, but ESPN thinks it’s important enough to send their two morning Sports Center hosts to cover the event. Hannah Storm and Josh Elliott will be your hosts for the pomp and circumstance starting at 11am on New Year’s Day. Via ESPN PR….
On Thursday, Jan. 1 at 11 a.m. ET, ABC will ring in the New Year with live coverage of the 120th Tournament of Roses Parade. The Rose Parade will once again feature the beautiful pageantry and tradition of magnificent floral floats, high-stepping equestrians and spirited marching bands. SportsCenter anchors Hannah Storm and Josh Elliot will host.
Brent Musburger, Kirk Herbstreit and Lisa Salters will work the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Citi on ABC (Jan. 1) at 4:30 p.m. ESPN Monday Night Football commentator Mike Tirico will call the Rose Bowl Game Presented by Citi on ESPN Radio with analyst David Norrie and reporter Erin Andrews.
I’m thinking it will be like the Macy’s Day Parade coverage, only with less floating cartoon characters and more chessy jokes. Should be fun!
