ESPN Names New Primetime Newsmagazine E:60

ESPN's new primetime newsmagazine, set to debut Tuesday, October 16, at 7 p.m. ET, will be named E:60. The name is a play on the �360� concept, reflecting the show's philosophy to approach its storytelling from all angles � from the way it shoots interviews and reporter-producer meetings, chronicles reporters' experiences, and tells compelling stories, to the multimedia platforms that will deliver E:60's high-quality content. E:60 will be the television and online newsmagazine where in-depth treatment of the best stories in sports come full circle.

Highlights of E:60 on ESPN

- ESPN's first primetime multi-themed news magazine show

- Award-winning journalists � Jeremy Schaap, Lisa Salters, Tom Farrey, Rachel Nichols and Michael Smith � will serve as E:60's primary reporters and hosts. Additional guest reporters and commentators will appear periodically.

- Following its debut October 16, three additional one-hour episodes will be aired on consecutive Tuesdays. The series will return for five weeks in April 2008 and six weeks in June 2008 (15 one-hour original episodes a year).

- Each episode will feature a combination of investigative reports, profiles of intriguing sports personalities, compelling features on the best stories in sports, and cutting-edge stories on innovations in the sports world, including emerging sports and new technology.

- E:60 will differentiate itself by offering a unique, behind-the-scenes portrait of its reporters by taking the viewer into the world of the reporters as they work on their stories.

- Each segment will meld the stories with a glimpse of the reporters' experiences � pitching the original idea, creating storylines with producers and interviewing their subjects. Reporters will interact with fans by �blogging� their experiences in the field.

- E:60 will be first television magazine show to be produced and televised in HD.

- The program will complement ESPN's award-winning Outside the Lines franchise � enhancing the network's overall commitment to long-form journalism.

- E:60 will be distributed across various ESPN media platforms � ESPN.com, ESPN360.com, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN International, Mobile Publishing, Mobile TV and podcasts.

Behind the Camera

E:60 will be produced by a team of seasoned and award-winning television documentary producers. The production team is led by Robert Wallace, an Emmy Award-winning producer, formerly with ABC News and a 30-year veteran of print and television journalism. Longtime ESPN feature producer Andy Tennant, who has earned several Emmy and Edward R. Murrow Awards, will serve as the executive producer. Emmy Award-winning producer Robert Abbott, who oversaw ESPN25, the network's 25th anniversary programming, will be the coordinating producer, and former HBO director of documentary programming Julie Anderson, an accomplished television documentary producer who has earned several Emmy and Peabody Awards, will serve as senior producer.
