SportsCenter will bring in some young blood, as ESPN has announced three new correspondents will be joining the sports news show.
EW can confirm that, as The Wrap first reported, Will Reeve, Reese Waters, and Sarina Morales will be joining SportsCenter as correspondents for ESPN’s daily news show.
The three will produce special reports for the show that will be distinct from other aspects of the show and hopefully have “an extended life digitally and on social media,” according to Reeve.
Reeve has previously written and reported for ESPN, while comedian Reese Waters also has a history with ESPN. He hosted Unite, a late-night college sports wrap-up show for ESPNU, and also mixed his love of sports and his career as a comedian as a co-host of the Versus network’s The Daily Line. Morales is a social media correspondent who previously helped to grow National Geographic’s social media presence.
SportsCenter recently lost one of its anchors when Stuart Scott died of cancer earlier this month. Rather than replacing Scott, however, these correspondents appear to be broadening the scope of SportsCenter’s content to reach a younger audience.
The Wrap has spoken with all three correspondents about how they came to be at ESPN and what they will bring to their new roles with SportsCenter.
