Max Kellerman was recently booted from First Take, but he got his own show as a fallback of sorts. That’s not a bad deal.
The show is called This Just In and it will debut at 2 p.m. next Tuesday. It’s described as a one-hour show that will “provide all the latest news, opinion and analysis on the day’s trending and under-the-radar afternoon headlines and look ahead at potential news-making moments that evening.”
From ESPN PR:
This Just In will add to ESPN’s expansive live studio show offerings throughout the day. Beginning at 8 a.m., fans will be able to hear the latest news, information and original, timely opinions and analysis across all sports with Get Up (8-10 a.m.), First Take (10 a.m.-12 p.m.) and the 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. editions of SportsCenter, all culminating with This Just In. ESPN’s live schedule continues throughout the afternoon with sport-specific content and much more.
The show will also feature special segments including:
-“The Agenda” – a fast-paced look at the storylines for the night ahead
-“Afternoon Weigh In” – A deep-dive from Kellerman on a trending topic with his unique insight and panelist debate
-“Best Bets” – a breakdown of the night’s most important games with key stats and betting information
-And many sport-specific segments, including “QB Sneak” – evaluations of recent quarterback performances from Kellerman and NFL analysts – and more
Meantime, Max’s former partner, Screamin’ A Smith, has been debating with a rotating cast of characters on First Take.
