The Crossover: with Beadle and Briggs, a new 30-minute daily topical sports, entertainment and pop culture show featuring Michelle Beadle (@MichelleDBeadle), one of America’s most popular sports and entertainment broadcasters, and Westporter Dave Briggs (@DaveBriggsTV), former Fox News personality, premieres Monday, January 28, at 6 p.m. ET on the NBC Sports Network.
Designed for viewers who want more than basic sports news and scores, The Crossover will focus on the biggest and most topical stories of the day in the worlds of sports, pop culture and entertainment. As part of the daily show, Beadle and Briggs will welcome guests from sports and entertainment to discuss the news of the day, the sports teams they love, the projects they are working on and more.
The Crossover (@Crossover) debuts Monday, January 28 from New Orleans, the site of Super Bowl XLVII. Original episodes will air each day from a specially designed set during Super Bowl week. Beginning Monday, February 4, The Crossover will move to its permanent home in Studio 8G at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in New York.
In addition to co-hosting The Crossover, Beadle serves as a correspondent for Access Hollywood, and will also continue her role as a host/reporter for NBC Sports Group’s big-event properties.
“We’re merely a show just looking to change the entire landscape of sports television in America,” said Beadle. “Also, someone finally needs to address this Tim Tebow guy.”
Briggs joins NBC Sports Group from Fox News Channel, where he was host of Fox and Friends Weekend. Prior to Fox, he was a reporter for Comcast SportsNet New England and WHDH-TV in Boston.
“For as long as I can remember, I’ve felt NBC was the gold standard in television, and it’s an honor to join the team together with the talented Michelle Beadle,” said Briggs. “Bringing together me, who’s been covering the bitter politics of D.C., with Beadle, who follows glamorous and scandalous Hollywood, can only produce one thing; a unique new show.”
The Crossover: with Beadle and Briggs can be seen on NBC Sports Network, channel 146 on Cablevision in Westport.
