The Sporting News is reporting that Katie Nolan is reportedly being "wooed" by ESPN, possibly to team up with Mike Greenberg.
ESPN is secretly wooing FS1 rising star Katie Nolan, Sporting News has learned.
ESPN boss John Skipper, Connor Schell and producer Erik Rydhom have held exploratory talks with the Emmy-winning star of "Garbage Time" about joining the Worldwide Leader in Sports, according to sources.
If ESPN is able to steal Nolan away from FS1, the network has big plans for Nolan and her irreverent personality, sources said.
One possibility: pairing her with "Mike & Mike in the Morning" co-host Mike Greenberg for a national show that would create an All-Star morning show team — and mark the end of Greenberg's on-air 17-year partnership with Mike Golic.
The new Greenberg morning show will likely be produced in New York City where "Garbage Time" was shot. Nolan, a Boston native, has been reluctant to leave the East Coast for FS1's studios in Los Angeles.
