The ESPN Radio SportsCenter update anchor is Jay Reynolds on most shows. Reynolds is probably more involved in the show than most of the other ESPN Radio SportsCenter anchors, as he assists with phone calls, the AllNight Hollywood Quiz and the Around the Dial segments. Regular fill-in guest hosts for the show are Bob Valvano and Amy Lawrence. Smith himself is also a regular fill-in host for Colin Cowherd on The Herd with Colin Cowherd and John Seibel on SportsNation, all of which are also on ESPN Radio. Pernell Brown is the current Producer of the show. Brown previously was a Producer on "The V Show."
Smith is joined every night by ESPN insiders such as Mel Kiper Jr., John Clayton, Jayson Stark, Marc Stein, Mark May and Doug Gottlieb, all on The OnStar Hotline. Although most guests on All Night appear via the OnStar hotline; one regular guest, former Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins defensive tackle Brandon Noble, is an exception to the rule. Anytime Noble is a guest (with the exception of when either Valvano or Lawrence is subbing for Smith), Smith would dial Noble on the telephone only to get a "call intercept" message followed by Smith identifying himself as an NFL player or coach making headlines that day. Noble appears via OnStar hotline anytime there is a substitute host for Smith.
Also, during the past NBA and MLB seasons, the listeners have chosen "AllNight Teams". The first NBA team was the Golden State Warriors and the MLB team chosen recently was the Toronto Blue Jays. On an interesting note, after becoming the AllNight team, the Jays hit a slump, and the Warriors didn't do well after they were chosen. This has brought about the idea of the AllNight curse, similar to that of the Madden curse. Currently, as of November 2006, the new AllNight NBA Team is the Los Angeles Clippers and they too have not performed too well this season while the Warriors would go on to defeat the Dallas Mavericks in the First Round of the NBA Playoffs.
