Tim Tebow lands co-host role on popular ESPN show
Tim Tebow’s next media move has been revealed by ESPN.
While Tebow will still be an analyst on the SEC Network every Saturday for its pregame show, he’ll also be a co-host on another popular show, too.
ESPN announced Thursday that Tebow will join First Take to debate Stephen A. Smith every Friday.
Tebow, the legendary Florida quarterback, recently tried to make an NFL comeback with the Jacksonville Jaguars; however, he included in the first round of cuts during training camp.
Each week will culminate on Friday with Heisman Trophy Winner and SEC Network analyst Tim Tebow and Smith debating all things college football heading into Saturdays throughout the season. In addition, First Take will also continue to regularly welcome signature celebrity guests from across sports and entertainment to the show.
In addition to Tebow, ESPN also announced that NFL Hall of Famer Michael Irvin will also appear on First Take on Mondays.
“This new format will pair Smith with new voices and perspectives every day of the week who will challenge him on their specific area of expertise in a completely new way,” said Antoine Lewis, senior coordinating producer, First Take, said in a release. “Stephen A., Molly and a lineup of A-list guests will definitely continue to provide fans with all they’ve come to expect from First Take and much more. We’re excited to get going!”
September 1 was Max Kellerman’s last First Take show. He’s joining ESPN Radio’s lineup.
