The late-night SportsCenter from ESPN’s Los Angeles studios will have familiar faces behind the desk for the foreseeable future. Co-anchors Neil Everett and Stan Verrett have reached new, multi-year agreements to remain with ESPN.
The duo joined ESPN two months apart back in 2000 and will remain partners on the 1 a.m. ET edition of the network’s flagship program. “The on-air chemistry Neil and Stan have can’t be manufactured,” said ESPN svp Rob King. “It’s as authentic as it gets, and we look forward to having them as part of our team for years to come.”
Prior to ESPN, Everett spent 15 years at various affiliates in Honolulu, most recently KGMB-TV, the CBS affiliate where he was the sports director and weekday anchor. Verrett was previously a weekend sports anchor and reporter at WDSU-TV, an NBC affiliate, in his hometown of New Orleans. He also made stops at ABC affiliate WVEC-TV and NBC affiliate WAVY-TV.
“When Stan said he was staying, then I had no choice,” said Everett. “We are joined at the hip. Plus, it’s a great gig so I’m glad Stan decided to stay.”
Verrett went on to say, “I have a dream job in a dream location. And I’m thrilled to continue working with Neil Everett every night.”
