ESPN gives new deal to anchor Kenny Mayne

Good news for Kenny Mayne fans. Mayne has signed a new multi-year deal to stay with ESPN in the role he’s done best over the years: anchoring SportsCenter.

Mayne will continue as a guest anchor on the 1 a.m. ET edition of SportsCenter from Los Angeles hosted by Neil Evertt and Stan Verett.

As part of his new contract, he’ll also be a featured contributor to Scott Van Pelt’s midnight ET SportsCenter from Bristol, Conn.

“For 20 years, Kenny Mayne has placed his own indelible, if somewhat askew, stamp on SportsCenter,” said Rob King, ESPN’s SVP/SportsCenter and News. “We are truly delighted that he’ll continue entertaining fans, both from the SportsCenter set and from all corners of the sporting world.”

Mayne returned to SportsCenter in 2013 after hosting Kenny Mayne’s Wider World of Spots and ESPN.com’s Mayne Street. He first joined ESPN in May 1994 as an anchor for ESPN2.

Mayne’s one of the few genuinely funny personalities on ESPN. His parody video with the stars of HBO’s The Sopranos was one of his finest moments. He’s worth his weight in gold during ESPN’s annual upfront presentation in New York, where he annually charms the tight-fisted media buyers of Madison Avenue out of their ad dollars.
