ESPNews
ESPNews
(pronounced " ESPN
ESPN
News") is an American digital cable and satellite television network that is owned by ESPN
ESPN
Inc., a joint venture between the Disney–ABC Television Group
Disney–ABC Television Group
division of The Walt Disney Company (which owns a controlling 80% stake) and the Hearst Communications (which owns the remaining 20%). Known as ESPN3
ESPN3
in its planning stages and proposed as early as 1993,[1] ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
launched on November 1, 1996 and originally focused on airing sports news, highlights and press conferences. Since 2010, the network has slowly become refocused to carry encores of ESPN's various sports debate and entertainment shows, along with video simulcasts of ESPN
ESPN
Radio shows, with press conferences now airing during the day on SportsCenter
SportsCenter
as the main ESPN
ESPN
channel has increasingly become news-based outside live sports – rather than carrying recorded sports events. ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
has increasingly been used as an overflow network for programming conflicts on the other ESPN networks. However, if there is a live sports event in progress on ESPNews, they will put it on their streaming service ESPN
ESPN
3 to show overflow programming from ESPN, ESPN
ESPN
2 or ESPN
ESPN
U. The most recent example in 2018 of this was when ESPN
ESPN
& ESPN
ESPN
2 both had NCAA basketball overflow and ESPNews
ESPNews
was supposed to show World Rugby Seven's Series when it was being played in the USA. However due to the overflow they put it on ESPN3
ESPN3
and put the basketball on ESPNews
ESPNews
and then put the rugby back on when ESPN
ESPN
& ESPN
ESPN
2 was done with the games that were currently being shown on both networks Olbermann was also carried live on ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
on weeknights if sports coverage on ESPN2 overflowed into that program's regular time slot. As of February 2015, ESPNews
ESPNews
is available to approximately 71,989,000 pay television households (61.8% of households with at least one television set) in the United States.[2]

Format and programming[edit] ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
is typically offered on the digital tiers of U.S. cable providers, and is carried as a premium channel in some areas; satellite providers offer it on their standard package. Some regional sports networks that are not associated with Fox Sports Net had previously aired ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
during the overnight or morning hours to provide a pseudo-national sports report to their viewers, and to fill time that would otherwise be taken up by paid programming or other lower-profile programs, though as vertical integration has occurred with the sports networks now owned by Comcast
Comcast
(with NBC Sports) and Charter Communications, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
programming has been dropped from these networks; however, its programming is still carried during the overnight hours on MASN2. If a national ESPN
ESPN
broadcast is blacked out in a particular market, the ESPN
ESPN
broadcast will usually be replaced by ESPNEWS. The network was formerly simulcast on ESPN
ESPN
during coverage of major breaking sports news before that network expanded SportsCenter
SportsCenter
into additional daytime slots in 2008; additionally, ABC's early morning newscast, America This Morning, previously ran a highlights segment rundown featuring sports news headlines and highlights of the previous night's sporting events presented by an overnight anchor for ESPNEWS. ESPNEWS's "bottom line" – a small rectangular area at the bottom fifth of the screen which displays sports scores – was formerly more in-depth than the versions used by ESPN's other networks. It contained not only scores, but also statistics and brief news alerts about the day's sports headlines. On November 11, 2006, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
marked its 10-year anniversary; programming commemorating the occasion included a montage of highlights covering the past 10 years in sports, along with a broadcast of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
at 11:00 p.m. Eastern Time on that same day. Around that time, the network began airing SportsCenter
SportsCenter
on nights when sporting event telecasts on ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2, such as college football or Major League Baseball
Major League Baseball
games, were scheduled to overrun into the program's regular timeslots on ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2's own sports analysis programs, which until 2010 would be the only incidences in which SportsCenter
SportsCenter
would be carried over to ESPNews. XM Satellite Radio
XM Satellite Radio
and Sirius Satellite Radio
Sirius Satellite Radio
both provide channels with audio simulcasts of ESPNEWS, with the network's television advertisements replaced with radio ads from each service. On February 4, 2008, XM rebranded its channel as " ESPN
ESPN
Xtra",[3] and added radio programs from local ESPN
ESPN
Radio affiliates as well as the audio simulcast of ESPNEWS. The network switched to a near full-screen presentation in June 2010, with the network switching its BottomLine to the version used on all other ESPN
ESPN
networks in anticipation of the network's prime-time programming being rebranded under the SportsCenter
SportsCenter
umbrella title. In August 2010, telecasts of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
on ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
increased in frequency, now airing whenever ESPN
ESPN
or ESPN2
ESPN2
were unable to air the program due to scheduling conflicts, along with an afternoon expansion of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
to ESPNEWS's afternoon schedule rather than rolling ESPNEWS-branded coverage, while ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2
ESPN2
carry sports talk and debate programming. The Beat (a show showing pop culture and sports action to the tune of a beat) was shown while SportsCenter
SportsCenter
aired on ESPN
ESPN
at 6:00 p.m. Eastern Time until its cancellation in July 2011, and replacement by a rebroadcast of the ESPN2
ESPN2
sports talk program SportsNation. By early 2013, the only other programs featured on ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
were Highlight Express (a half-hour program showing the previous day's sports highlights, running from 10:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time in the afternoon), and the overnight soccer program ESPNFC Press Pass. A program titled under the ESPNEWS brand was replaced by SportsCenter. The network also airs programming under the College Football Live banner on Saturday afternoons during college football season, a whip-around program similar to ESPN
ESPN
Goal Line, which gives live look-ins to multiple college football games happening simultaneously. On June 13, 2013, Highlight Express was canceled due to low ratings and company-wide downsizing, leaving the overnight ESPNFC Press Pass, produced primarily for ESPN
ESPN
International, as the only program on the network that was exclusively broadcast (within the U.S.) on ESPNews;[4][5] that program was removed from the schedule in August 2013, after it was supplanted by a new ESPN2
ESPN2
program simply titled ESPN
ESPN
FC).[6] Additional runs of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
and other same-day airings of ESPN
ESPN
sports debate programming or the newsmagazine E:60 now fill the network's schedule, along with encores such as Friday Night Fights, as well as programming affected by sports-induced pre-emptions and overruns such as Olbermann during the US Open.[7] The highlights and segment package for America This Morning
America This Morning
came under the purview of the late-night SportsCenter
SportsCenter
team from Los Angeles
Los Angeles
from that day forward. On November 29, 2017 as part of an expected announcement of 150 behind the scenes staffs being laid off from the network, ESPN
ESPN
announced that the primetime SportsCenter
SportsCenter
editions carried in primetime on ESPNews would be terminated after November 30 to cut costs (breaking sports news coverage will be maintained when needed).[8] They were replaced by a block of reruns of ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2's daytime talk programs, including Around the Horn, Highly Questionable, Outside the Lines, Pardon the Interruption, and SportsNation.[9] Use as an overflow feed for live coverage[edit] ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
ran a simulcast of ESPN
ESPN
Radio's Mike and Mike in the Morning from 2004 to 2005; the program moved to ESPN2
ESPN2
in 2006, although it still occasionally airs on ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
when live sports events (such as tennis' French Open
French Open
or Wimbledon) air on ESPN2. When ESPN2
ESPN2
televised the 2009 U.S. Open tennis tournament, SportsNation aired on ESPNEWS instead from August 31 to September 11, 2009. As ESPN
ESPN
Classic's carriage has declined more into specialty cable tiers due to bandwidth conservation concerns and low viewership, along with the fact that ESPN
ESPN
Classic does not yet have an HD simulcast channel (the former factors eventually led ESPN
ESPN
to transition ESPN Classic into a video on demand service beginning in 2014), ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
has become the primary overflow network for situations in which ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2
ESPN2
carry live sports coverage.

The network aired two National Invitation Tournament college basketball games on March 25, 2013 that were originally scheduled to air on ESPN, which instead aired an NBA game telecast between the Miami Heat
Miami Heat
and the Orlando Magic
Orlando Magic
(a game in which the Heat extended its winning streak to 27 games). Another NBA overflow of the late game of that night's ESPN doubleheader aired partially two days later on March 27 due to ESPN2 already carrying coverage of the 2013 NCAA Women's Division I Basketball Tournament until the first game on ESPN
ESPN
ended, with ESPN having an extended post-game show for the first game due to the Heat's aforementioned winning streak ending at the hands of the Chicago Bulls. Coverage of the NCAA Women's Softball Preliminary Tournament aired on ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
on May 18, 2013, due to NBA playoff coverage on ESPN
ESPN
and X Games Barcelona coverage on ESPN2. The network's most apparent overflow use has been with the NASCAR Nationwide Series
Nationwide Series
in 2013. On April 26, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
carried full live coverage of the Toyota Care 250
Toyota Care 250
at Richmond International Raceway, due to NBA playoff coverage on ESPN, with the 2013 NFL Draft's second night airing on ESPN2. The Kentucky 300
Kentucky 300
on September 21 from Kentucky Speedway was also moved over to ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
due to college football games airing on both ESPN
ESPN
networks. On August 31, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
aired three college football games, including the Kentucky–Western Kentucky game live from LP Field
LP Field
in Nashville, presumably due to all other ESPN
ESPN
networks being fully booked for college games at that time. ESPN
ESPN
Goal Line also has been expanded onto additional cable systems through new carriage agreements struck by The Walt Disney Company in early 2013, making the Goal Line simulcast unneeded. ESPN's coverage of Wimbledon was often moved to ESPNews
ESPNews
in 2014 due to their coverage of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. ESPN's coverage of the Wisconsin v. USC Holiday Bowl was moved to ESPNews
ESPNews
in 2015. ESPN's coverage of the northeast regional NCAA hockey tournament, due to the NCAA Women's basketball tournament on ESPN, NCAA baseball and softball on ESPN2
ESPN2
and NCAA lacrosse and other regional games of the NCAA hockey tournament on ESPN-U in 2018. Also due to live coverage on ESPN
ESPN
and ESPN2
ESPN2
of the NCAA Women's basketball tournament, ESPNews
ESPNews
showed the rest of the day's Miami Open quarterfinal and semifinal coverage that was shown on ESPN2
ESPN2
before primetime coverage of the basketball tournament.

ESPN
Radio segment[edit] In 2007, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
began broadcasting a half-hour segment of ESPN
ESPN
Radio programming on Sunday mornings. The broadcast includes three commentators (a retired coach, a retired player, and an analyst) to break down the events of the featured sport, while an on-screen graphical list of standings, statistical leaders, and other statistics of the featured sport is displayed; the upper-right of the screen shows sports highlights (usually of the player or team of discussion); a fan comment board appears at the bottom of the screen, above the ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
BottomLine. High definition[edit] ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
operates a high definition simulcast feed, which broadcasts in 720p
720p
(the default resolution format for The Walt Disney Company's television properties) and was launched on March 30, 2008.[10] Originally, the layout and graphics were reworked specifically for viewing on widescreen television sets, offering additional content not available on the channel's standard definition feed.[11] It utilized reworked HD sideline graphics, a descendant of the "Rundown" used on overnight editions of SportsCenter
SportsCenter
on ESPN, which wrapped around the top left and bottom of the widescreen picture. The HD Sideline offered the display of textual information, headshots, news and scores, while still delivering video highlights in the HD format. The enhanced format was discontinued in June 2010 and the channel now broadcasts in near-fullscreen 16:9, with regular gray and red graphics similar to those used by the other ESPN
ESPN
channels. The move was made to "accommodate the high number of SportsCenters that moved to the network during the World Cup". On May 20, 2012, ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
switched the presentation of its standard definition feed from 4:3 to a downscaled widescreen letterbox version of the HD feed, becoming the last ESPN
ESPN
network with a HD companion channel to make the conversion to a full-widescreen presentation. ESPNEWS
ESPNEWS
HD was added to Dish Network
Dish Network
on March 18, 2014, as part of a new carriage agreement that ended a four-year dispute that removed existing HD simulcast feeds of Disney-owned channels. International versions[edit] While not operating under the ESPN
ESPN
name, CTV Specialty Television (which is partly owned by ESPN) operates RDS Info, a French-language sister network to Réseau des sports
Réseau des sports
(RDS) (which in turn, is a sister network to the English language TSN), which maintains a sports news format and ticker similar to that used by ESPNEWS, and carries continuous broadcasts of Sports 30 (RDS's equivalent of SportsCenter). Until October 2011, when RDS2
RDS2
was launched, RDS Info
RDS Info
was also used as a part-time secondary outlet for RDS in the event of scheduling conflicts. It has since served as an occasional tertiary outlet for RDS programming, similar to the role now served by ESPNEWS. See also[edit]
