Tennis legend John McEnroe will bring his feisty persona to CNBC for a one-hour primetime talk show beginning this spring, the network announced Wednesday.
McEnroe -- who will also be the show’s co-executive producer -- will lead a team of hosts in discussions about the news of the day.
McEnroe will continue as an analyst on NBC Sports' tennis telecasts, as well as CBS’ and USA Network's coverage of the U.S. Open.
