Magic Johnson’s commute during the NBA season just got a whole lot easier.
ESPN’s Kia NBA Countdown show is moving to the network’s Los Angeles Production Center at L.A. LIVE. In previous years, the show originated from New York City and ESPN’s headquarters in lovely Bristol, Conn.
Joining Johnson this season are Michael Wilbon, Jon Barry and newcomer Chris Broussard. Gone from the mix are Stuart Scott and Hannah Storm, as the show won’t have a traditional host, according to the USA Today.
“It’s been a lot of fun working with ESPN and its NBA team the last four years,” said Johnson in a statement. “I’ve enjoyed it so much I’m looking forward to making even more appearances this season and I’m very excited about the show moving to L.A.”
