New York, NY (June 20, 2017) – A new late-night sports show is coming to MSG Networks.
Today, MSG Networks announced the launch of its new weekday thirty-minute program, People Talking Sports* (*And Other Stuff), starring New York sports super-fan and comedian Sam Morril. All summer long beginning July 10th, People Talking Sports*(*And Other Stuff) will air Monday – Thursday at 11:00PM EST. The show’s ‘Opening Monologue’ each night will simultaneously run on MSG Network’s Facebook Live Page.
Morril, a native New Yorker who grew up watching and cheering for New York sports teams, is one of the fastest-rising stand-up comics in the country. Named one of Comedy Central’s “Comics to Watch” Morril has been featured on Last Comic Standing, Conan, Inside Amy Schumer, and Fox News’ Red Eye.
Morril will combine his fanaticism for New York teams and reputation as one of comedy’s best joke writers to headline MSG Network’s brand new late night series. He will discuss the latest sports topics, from a fan perspective, with a variety of sports guests and other celebrities four nights a week.
“I love MSG, I love the Knicks and cheer for most New York teams, and I’m a native New Yorker,” said Morril. “I’m excited to bring an amazing and innovative show to the network. I don’t want to make any guarantees, but I believe the momentum from my soon-to-be hit show will carry the Knicks into next years’ playoffs.”
Each episode of People Talking Sports* (*And Other Stuff) will feature segments including an opening monologue; a panel discussion with a variety of athletes, personalities and celebrities; a pre-recorded taped sketch; and a closing montage.
In addition, Liz Gonzales will serve as a correspondent and occasional panelist for the show. Gonzales has covered the Jets and Patriots and was a contributor for SB Nation.
All episodes of People Talking Sports* (*And Other Stuff) televised on MSG Networks will also be streamed on MSG GO, MSG Networks’ live streaming and video on demand platform for smartphones, tablets and computers. MSG GO enables fans, whether at home or on-the-go, to watch all of MSG Networks’ programming. MSG GO is available to subscribers of participating television providers who receive MSG Networks as part of their television subscription.
