NBCSN is adding a large dash of social to its lineup, staring Monday.
SportsDash with Yahoo! Sports, a collaborative, cross-platform extension of the strategic digital alliance between Yahoo! Sports and NBC Sports Group, will premiere Aug. 19 on the national cable network in the noon (ET) hour.
The new program, hosted by Dave Briggs and Carolyn Manno, will utilize a digital media wall that integrates real-time activity from multiple sources, such as Yahoo! Sports Trends, Facebook and Twitter, to identify the hottest topics in sports.
Airing weekdays, SportsDash will also cover fantasy sports on a daily basis and will include analysis from experts Yahoo! Sports’ Brad Evans, Brandon Funston and Andy Behrens, along with NBC Rotoworld’s Kay Adams.
Depending on the sports du jour, SportsDash will feature commentary from Rodney Harrison, Doug Flutie, Scott Pioli, Rebecca Lowe, Jimmy Roberts, Jeremy Roenick, Mary Carillo, Ato Boldin and Joe Posnanski, as well as Yahoo! Sports’ experts Pat Forde, Martin Rogers, Eric Adelson and Graham Watson.
Beginning in late August, a complementary, digital-only show will stream live from 1-1:15 p.m. (ET) on Yahoo! Sports, NBCSports.com, and will be available across mobile platforms through the NBC Sports Live Extra app. SportsDash will kick off each morning with a video report on Yahoo! Sports spotlighting the day’s hottest story.
