Here are some more details on the content of the show, as Tirico will host it remotely and discuss the impact on the sports world of the current coronavirus pandemic. It aims to give guests a “platform to discuss the state of sports, voice their personal stories and detail how they are adapting their daily lives during this challenging time.”
“In these challenging times, we are all missing sports and the people who make sports memories,” Tirico said. “Hopefully, we can bring a midday connection with some of them to help fill the void.”
