Earlier this month, Scott Van Pelt inked a multi-year extension with ESPN. As part of that extension, Van Pelt would be the sole anchor of the midnight SportsCenter. But unfortunately, there was a negative part of Van Pelt’s new role – he would be leaving his radio show with Ryen Russillo.
While we’re still unsure about when the new midnight SportsCenter will begin to air, a source has tipped Awful Announcing off to the date of the final episode of SVP & Russillo on ESPN Radio – Friday, June 19th. Now that we know there are only three weeks worth of shows left, it’s time to drink it in and savor the final few days.
A replacement for SVP & Russillo has not been announced, though we did brainstorm some options earlier this month.
When contacted by Awful Announcing, ESPN declined comment.
