Michael Smith To Co-Host Numbers Never Lie

We now know who new hire Charissa Thompson will work alongside on ESPN2′s Numbers Never Lie.

ESPN veteran Michael Smith was tapped for the position when the weekday show makes its debut Sept. 12 at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Smith and Thompson will get a chance to work together when they appear as substitute co-hosts on SportsNation this Thursday and Friday.

According to ESPN, “Numbers Never Lie will feature lively roundtable debate pitting the wisdom of former professional athletes against the pragmatism of statisticians. “Old school” fans will enjoy the unique expertise that comes from those who have played the game, while fantasy fanatics will appreciate the quantitative look at the biggest stories in the sports world.”
