In The Game with Robin Roberts presented by Lexus returns next week. The sports based program is produced by espnW in partnership with ABC News. It can be viewed online at http://www.espnW.com and http://www.abcnews.com, and on TV on ESPN’s SportsCenter. Good Morning America host and former ESPN anchor Robin Roberts, will be joined by NASCAR driver Danica Patrick for a one-on-one conversation in next week’s season premiere.
When asked about Roberts returning to host the program again, espnW Vice President Laura Gentile shared her thoughts on having her return to host again. “Robin Roberts is a respected journalist and life-long athlete,” Gentile said. “In the Game enables Robin to connect with today’s athletes in an intimate setting and uncover insights and stories that truly illuminate them as people. It’s a unique platform and one in which only Robin could bring such power and meaning.”
Roberts shared Gentile’s sentiment adding, “I’ll probably always be an athlete at heart,” she noted. “I appreciate espnW bringing me back for a second season. There’s so much we can all learn from these top athletes. I also enjoy bringing out a side of them rarely seen. Teaming up again with espnW is a perfect fit.”
Roberts’ interviews with her guests are expected to focus on “pursuit of perfection” in each athlete’s career and personal life. U.S. Gold Medal winning gymnast Gabby Douglas and U.S. Women’s National Team forward Alex Morgan are both scheduled to appear this season on In The Game with Robin Roberts presented by Lexus along with even more guests to be announced at later dates.
