TIM TEBOW TO HOST NEW HIGH-STAKES COMPETITION SERIES "MILLION DOLLAR MILE" ON CBS

Sports Commentators Matt "Money" Smith and Maria Taylor Will Serve as Play-By-Play Reporters

Series Hails from Executive Producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan, SpringHill Entertainment and Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television

Tim Tebow, former college football champion and NFL quarterback, will serve as host of MILLION DOLLAR MILE, a new 10-episode high-stakes physical competition series on the CBS Television Network. Matt "Money" Smith, the voice of the L.A. Chargers play-by-play, and Maria Taylor, ESPN host and reporter, will serve as commentators.

The series comes from executive producers Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan with Fly on the Wall Entertainment and LeBron James and Maverick Carter with SpringHill Entertainment, as well as Warner Horizon Unscripted & Alternative Television.

"Watching good people compete at their highest ability is always inspirational to me," said Tebow. "MILLION DOLLAR MILE is a show that does just that - it motivates, thrills, and is aspirational, and I'm excited to be hosting this show."

In this unprecedented television event series, contestants will have the chance to win $1,000,000 every time they run the Million Dollar Mile. Standing in their way is the most challenging course ever designed and a group of elite athletes with one mission: to stop the contestants from winning the money at all costs. Currently, the series is in production in Los Angeles for broadcast on the CBS Television Network.

Tebow is a two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick and Heisman Trophy winner. Currently, he serves as a college football analyst for ESPN. Prior to joining ESPN, he played three years in the NFL for the Denver Broncos and the New York Jets. Now, Tebow is pursuing a career in professional baseball as a member of the New York Mets organization. He is the author of three New York Times bestsellers: Through My Eyes, which was named the #1 sports and religion book of 2011; Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life's Storms, released in 2016 and winner of the 2017 Evangelical Christian Publishers Association Book of the Year; and This Is the Day, released on Sept. 25. The Tim Tebow Foundation was established in 2010 with the goal of bringing faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need.

Matt "Money" Smith has been a Southern California sports staple since 1996. While in college, he was part of the popular "Kevin and Bean Show" on 106.7 KROQ in Los Angeles, where he remained for over a decade. While serving as the station's sports director, he worked as a record producer for DreamWorks Records, which was later sold to Interscope. Smith seamlessly slid into the music director chair at KROQ, programming the station from 2003 until 2005. Later, he was approached by the Lakers to join a newly configured radio broadcast after the passing of legendary voice Chick Hearn. In 2006, he partnered with Petros Papadakis, to form "The Petros and Money Show," a Los Angeles radio afternoon drive time powerhouse. He moved on from the Lakers in 2010 to provide play-by-play duties for NCAA Football, NCAA Basketball, and NFL Football on Compass Media Networks. In 2017, Smith was named lead play-by-play announcer for the radio broadcasts of the L.A. Chargers. On television, he has spent the last seven years as host on the NFL Network franchise "Fantasy Live" and drives coverage during the Super Bowl, NFL Draft, NFL Combine and other NFL-sanctioned events. Smith received two undergraduate degrees at Pepperdine University, where he met his wife, Kerie. Currently, they reside with their three daughters in Orange County, Calif.

Maria Taylor is in her sixth season as an analyst, host and reporter for ESPN. In 2017 Taylor became the first African American woman to co-host College GameDay Built by The Home Depot. Also, Taylor was the sideline reporter for ABC Saturday Night Football and patrolled the sidelines for the 2018 College Football Playoff and National Championship Game. Previously, she served as the first female host of SEC Network's traveling college football show, SEC Nation, alongside analysts Tim Tebow, Marcus Spears and Paul Finebaum. In addition to her football duties, Taylor is a host of Big Monday and NCAA Women's Final Four and National Championship coverage. She helped launch the SEC Network as one of three studio hosts and worked as the SEC Primetime Saturday Night college football reporter with commentators Brent Musburger and Jesse Palmer. Taylor was a reporter and host for IMG College at the University of Georgia. She appeared on various Comcast Sports South studio shows. Taylor co-founded the non-profit organization The Winning Edge Leadership Academy to develop the next generation of women and minority leaders in sports business. A native of Alpharetta, Ga., she attended the University of Georgia, where she played volleyball and basketball.
