Former CBS’ The Early Show and ABC’s Good Morning America Weekend personality Marysol Castro has joined ESPN to host Premier Boxing Champions. Castro will also be a reporter on ESPN’s Little League World Series telecasts and begins work on July 11 at 9 p.m. when PBC premieres on the network.

“Marysol has an energetic presence and is intelligent and versatile,” ESPN senior coordinating producer Matt Sandulli said. “Adding a professional with her vast experience will make our presentation even more valuable to the viewers.”

Castro was most recently a news anchor for WPIX in New York and says it’s a “privilege” to work for ESPN.

“I’m extremely excited to be a part of such an energetic, smart and fun team. My years at network news, my love of sports and experience as an athlete have prepared me for this next chapter in my professional life. I look forward to bringing boxing back to the forefront of sports and since I never did get to play for the Yankees, covering Little League is the next best thing,” Castro said.
