ESPN's SportsCenter will look to deliver music along with sports highlights beginning Thursday when it debuts its Center Stage music series.
The music show kicks off Thursday (June 25) during SportsCenter's 6 p.m. show with a performance from hip hop artist Wiz Khalifa. The series will return Friday (June 26) with a live performance from Wale, said network officials.
"Sports and music have always had a cool connection, and we hope Center Stage will further that relationship in a way that will resonate with our fans,” said Senior Vice President, SportsCenter and News Rob King. “To be able to kick it off with Wiz Khalifa and Wale, back-to-back, is instant confirmation of how impactful Center Stage can be.”
