Kevin Negandhi, an Indian American broadcaster at ESPN, has been tabbed, along with colleague Sage Steele, to anchor a revamped SportsCenter on the network, according to a New York Post report.
Steele and Negandhi, the latter of whom was named as an integral part of the network’s Special Olympics coverage (see India-West article here), will anchor the weekday broadcasts of the 6 p.m. ET SportsCenter.
ESPN has not made an official announcement and a spokesperson at the network declined to comment when reached by USA Today Sports, according to a USA Today report.
Negandhi has been with the network since 2006 and has been among several anchors to work on the 6 p.m. SportsCenter following the departure of Michael Smith.
For Negandhi, this isn’t the first time he has been tasked with a high-profile gig at the network. In the fall last year, the network named him the anchor of ESPN College Football on ABC. Additionally, he has served as the anchor of ESPN’s coverage of the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
