American sports television brand ESPN announced this week that they're going to be launching a new sportsbetting show that will provide news and information revolving around the activity.
The new show will launch on Monday, March 11th at 6PM and will be called Daily Wager. The show will be broadcast from the company's Bristol, Connecticut studios and will feature analyst Doug Kezirian as host. It's believed that the show will have analysis and data for viewers, but will not feature handicapping statuses for the events.
Speaking about the launch ESPN's Norby Williamson said, "ESPN's mission is to serve sports fans. The sports betting environment has changed and interest is increasing at unprecedented levels. ESPN is going to have a strong and vibrant presence across our platforms, and the launch of Daily Wager is the next step in what has already been underway for some time."
Sportsbetting is opening to mainstream appeal in the United States after the Supreme Court gave their go-ahead for the activity last year, throwing out a nearly 30 year ban on the activity that was passed.
