A new host for ESPN’s ‘Monday Night Countdown’ has been named following the departure of Suzy Kolber.
Both Van Pelt and Laura Rutledge were under consideration for the role after Kolber was laid off in June, but SVP edged Rutledge out as he remains one of the favorites where management is concerned.
Meanwhile, Spears continues to rise at ESPN, having recently signed a new four-year deal with the company worth close to $7 million.
Clark has also become a respected media member and is believed to have gotten interest from ‘Inside the NFL’, which is now on THE CW following a spell on Paramount Plus. RGIII was previously part of said show.
Rutledge will continue in her role as the host of ‘NFL Live’ and the network’s SEC Nation pregame.
