Get Up! with Mike Greenberg.

Forthcoming ESPN morning show Get Up missed its initially-planned Jan. 1 launch thanks to construction delays with ESPN’s New York City studios, but it now has a new premiere date: April 2. The show, featuring Mike Greenberg, Michelle Beadle and Jalen Rose, will air live daily on ESPN from 7 to 10 a.m. Eastern, then re-air on ESPN2 starting at 10 a.m. Eastern. ESPN’s release has more details, including the logo seen above (which bears a bit of a SyFy resemblance, and also has an exclamation point, unlike ESPN’s references to the show) and a quote promoting the trio:

Mornings on ESPN will look different this spring when its new morning show Get Up, featuring Michelle Beadle, Mike Greenberg, and Jalen Rose, premieres Monday, April 2. The weekday program will originate from a brand new studio at NYC’s South Street Seaport and will air live from 7-10 a.m. ET on ESPN, re-airing each day at 10 a.m. on ESPN2. The program will feature news, opinion, and analysis.

“Sports fans start their days with sports and with ESPN,” said Bill Wolff, vice president, studio production, ESPN. “Our programming is based on two tenets — personality and authority. In both areas Michelle, Greeny, and Jalen are stars, which is why we’re so excited for Get Up.’”

This presumably also means that other ESPN programming will begin originating from the new studios around that time. One to keep an eye on there is the as-yet-unnamed Bomani Jones-Pablo Torre show set to run on ESPN from noon to 1 p.m. Eastern. That show was initially given a Jan. 2 premiere date, but bumped back thanks to the construction issues. Torre said on Twitter earlier this month that their first show would be “soon after” the new studios opened in April:

We’ll see how Get Up goes when it debuts, including what mix of “news, opinion and analysis” it will offer and what the reception from viewers will be. It’s also going to be interesting to see when ESPN decides to release more details about the Torre/Jones show, and about other programming coming from the new studio.

    Considering that every show on ESPN is just a rehash of the same manufactured topics the show before it covered, we already know exactly what “Get Up” will be like.

    And by September 2nd, there will be changes to try and save this ‘sinking tv show’…three annoying people and no one to counter them like on Mike and Mike as Golic made it very helpful in dealing with what ‘wimpy’ Greeny had to say….
