ESPN's live television broadcasts cover sporting events, sports news and interviews, sports commentary and talk shows, and human interests stories about sports personalities. ESPN also has several other affiliated broadcast networks with unique sports-related content, including ESPN 2, ESPN 3, ESPN News, ESPN Classic and ESPN U.
ESPN often broadcasts live professional and college sports including football, basketball, baseball, hockey and many other sports. Some of these programs include "Monday Night Football" from the NFL, major conference college basketball, Verizon's Indycar racing series and X-Game coverage.
ESPN broadcasts "Sportscenter," an hour-long show, several times a day. This live program features sports reporters giving scores and showing video highlights of that day's live sporting events. "Sportscenter" also often features interviews from both reporters and athletes live at sporting events.
The network's commentary-driven shows such as "College Gameday," "Monday Night Countdown," "Sports Nation" and "Baseball Tonight" provide sports enthusiasts with news, information, updates and projections for winners and losers before specific events, as well as post-event commentary on the outcome and results of the games. ESPN also produces several of its own human-interest programs designed to showcase athletes outside of the sports arena, including "Outside of the Lines" and "30 for 30."
