Katie Nolan’s role at ESPN is becoming more clear.
Since joining the Worldwide Leader in Sports after leaving FOX Sports 1 where she hosted Garbage Time, Nolan has been making appearances on various shows across ESPN’s family of networks.
Now, she will be adding another gig in Bristol.
On Monday, ESPN announced on its MediaZone blog that the network is launching a digital version of SportsCenter on Snapchat. Nolan will be serving as the host for the premiere episode.
Other hosts for the digital version of the sports highlight show are Elle Duncan, Cassidy Hubbarth, Jason Fitz and Cy Amundson.
“SportsCenter on Snapchat provides a creative new format and platform for our flagship franchise to continue to evolve,” said Connor Schell, ESPN executive vice president of content, said in a statement.
“Katie, Elle, Cassidy, Jason and Cy collectively bring a new style, energy and substance that I believe will connect with Snapchat’s audience in a real way. I’m thrilled to bring this level of talent and personality to a new and innovative daily touchpoint for ESPN.”
SportsCenter on Snapchat will be available twice a day. The first will be at 5:00 a.m. ET, with the second at 5:00 p.m. ET daily. Today’s premiere will be at 5:00 p.m. ET.
Snapchat is one of the most popular social media platforms for the younger audience, so it can reintroduce SportsCenter to a new audience in a fresh, more exciting way. It’s going to be interesting to see how this pans out.
