Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Hannah Storm To Weather SportsCenter Circus

Hannah Storm may have the name of a pro wrestler, but she's a serious germalist. She was the first full-time female sports anchor at CNN and a prominent figure at NBC Sports for a decade before jumping to CBS to host the CBS Early Show. She also told us about injuries in Madden '96, so she's got that gamer cred too. Now, as Richard Deitsch at SI reports, she's making the jump to Bristol.

Storm has been tapped to co-anchor a new morning edition of SportsCenter, with two extended SportsCenter programs to follow hers. That's a lot space to fill with Titletown segments.

Interestingly, the revamped SportsCenters will compete against the ESPN2 morning block of Mike & Mike In the Morning and First Take. Storm is expected to start sometime in the next couple of months.


Yowza. What a tall task to stick her with out of the gate. However can you wrestle viewers away from the prepossessing spectacle of Greenberg & Golic? She had better start coming up with some good jarring catch phrases. Might I suggest "BAH-BLAW! HERE COMES THE STORM!"?
