ESPN is about to get a whole lot more handsome.
Jon Hamm announced this morning on Live with Kelly and Michael that he will be hosting the 2013 ESPYs, a fact later confirmed by show producer Maura Mandt in a statement:
“The ESPYS is designed to showcase the year’s best sports moments in a sharp, fun and entertaining manner and Jon’s the perfect host for this year’s show. His appearances on shows like 30 Rock and SNL show that humor and creativity are two of his main strengths. The combination of Jon’s dry wit with his passion for sports will give fans a unique and original view of the year in sports."
Hamm is a fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and Rams.
He will take center stage on July 17 at 9 p.m. EST from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and join a roster of previous ESPY hosts that includes Samuel L. Jackson and Justin Timberlake.
