ESPN did a ‘crossover event’ this morning
ESPN had what it called a “crossover event” this morning.
- “Get Up!” host Mike Greenberg, who normally hosts the 8 to 10 a.m. eastern block alongside Jalen Rose and rotating other faces, also co-hosted “First Take.”
- “First Take” immediately follows “Get Up” and runs from 10 a.m. to noon — meaning Greenberg was on the air for four straight hours, though he did not appear in every segment.
- Greenberg joined Max Kellerman and Stephen A. Smith, who are the two regular hosts of the show.
- Molly Qerim, who normally serves as the “moderator,” is en route to Atlanta for the network’s coverage of the Super Bowl.
- On the last block of “Get Up,” Greenberg left early, leaving Laura Rutledge and Richard Jefferson to wrap up the show.
- Both shows originated from ESPN’s New York City studios in the South Street Seaport at Pier 17 development.
- “Get Up!” uses Studio 1, which is the large of the two studios.
- “First Take” originates from nearby Studio 2, which allowed Greenberg to walk from one set to another.
"Stephen A. & Max have been my friends for years – I’m really looking forward to having some fun and finally talking some sense into the both of them on Monday"
