More details about the show will be announced at a later date.
“Had someone asked me a year ago who I’d want to work with on a new TV show, I would have said Pablo Torre,” Jones was quoted as saying in the ESPN press release. “Now that it’s going to happen, I couldn’t be more excited. We have a chance to make something new, fresh and entertaining, and I can’t wait to take on that challenge.”
Torre added, “Bomani Jones happens to be one of my best friends in this strange business, not least because I wind up laughing while being challenged and enlightened every time we talk. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to turn ourselves into a live sports television show that’s as fun to watch as it will be to make.”
ESPN has signed Torre, who joined ESPN in 2012, to a multiyear extension which will also afford him the opportunity to continue making regular appearances across a variety of the network's shows and platforms.
Jones, who joined ESPN full time in 2013, signed a multiyear extension with the network in December of 2016. He will continue to host his exceptional radio show, The Right Time with Bomani Jones, for three hours every weekday. He will also remain as co-host of Highly Questionable until late June 2017.
