On the television side, we've seen SportsCenter go 24/7 on ESPNEWS, we've seen Scott Van Pelt and Jemele Hill and Michael Smith get their own personality driven shows, and ESPN try to turn SportsCenter:AM into a morning show.
"The original SportsCenter defined and changed the way people watched sports", said Sean Mills, head of original content at Snap Inc.
ESPN is bringing "SportsCenter" to Snapchat in a twice-daily show - running at just a fraction of the length of its TV progenitor and with a cast of more dressed-down, millennial hosts.
The ESPN hosts won't be sitting behind desks in suits and ties, and turning to highlights. "They're always looking for something new and fresh", he says. Other hosts for SportsCenter on Snapchat include Elle Duncan, Cassidy Hubbarth, Jason Fitz and Cy Amundson.
Though this hardly seems like the game-changer that will restore the show's former glory, it is firm proof that ESPN is, at the very least, exploring new ways to boost the brand. The evening show, which will be split Nolan and Duncan, will be more focused on providing analysis and personalized takes on that day's news. "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". "That's the most important thing to us". They'll dress more casually, their individual personalities will drive the shows' content, and the camera will be up close and personal.
Snapchat's core users are 18- to 24-year-olds who spend 35 minutes per day on the app through 20-plus visits.
