Neil Everett, Stan Verrett to host new SportsCenter
ESPN announced its new, L.A.-based late-night SportsCenter would be anchored primarily by Stan Verrett and Neil Everett, who despite their similar names are not related.
The 1 a.m. ET SportsCenter will debut from ESPN's fancy new studios April 6, when Stuart Scott will participate. He will host a select number of L.A. shows during the year.
The California SportsCenter will be the version shown in replays through early the next morning, leading up to the 9 a.m. ET SportsCenter that originates from Bristol, Conn.
All of this means an end to the 30-year tradition of full SportsCenter crews hitting the quiet streets of Bristol in the weird, wee hours.
