This is probably old news, but I just saw Charissa Thompson taking over as co-host of “Sports Nation” while Michelle Beadle is off doing the Olympics for NBC. I’ve always liked Thompson, and she’s an interesting replacement for Beadle, mostly because she brings a more aggressive style than Beadle, who I think spends 90% of her time playing the straight man to that Colin Something Guy.
I’m not sure what this means for Charissa’s “Numbers Never Lie”. I haven’t really seen much of that show, mostly because I don’t know when it comes on. “Sports Nation” is on at 4:00 p.m. where I live, so I’m usually home by the time it comes on.
