Malika Andrews Considered Strong Candidate To Become Next Countdown Host 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Thu Jul 22, 2021 3:08 am

Malika Andrews is viewed as a strong candidate to replace Maria Taylor as host of NBA Countdown. 


Andrews replaced Rachel Nichols as ABC's sideline reporter for the NBA Finals. ESPN executives previously hand-picked her to serve as one of the first reporters inside the NBA “bubble” last year.


But Andrews has never anchored or hosted a show as her primary experience has been as a reporter. 


Nichols is not in the running for the Countdown job.

Of course. The pandering continues.

Silly. Do it on merit, not on "feels" or "trends".
