Comcast-owned Versus sports network will air a live nightly sports/talk show beginning April 5.
The show, The Daily Line, will offer viewers a preview of the upcoming night in sports, as well as allow sports fans to discuss on-air the latest sports news by calling-in, texting e-mailing or tweeting into the show, according to network officials.
The one-hour show, which will air weeknights at 6 p.m. and originate from New York City, will be hosted by sports/entertainment personalities Liam McHugh, Jenn Sterger, Reese Waters and Rob DeAngelis, said the network.
The series marks the network's first swing at a daily sports show. In 2007, Versus offered a short-lived weekly sports entertainment show Sports Unfiltered, starring Dennis Miller.
