FOX Sports LIVE crew announced including Donovan McNabb, Charissa Thompson, Andy Roddick and Gary Payton

As FOX Sports 1 prepares to launch on August 17, the new network has announced the full cast and crew for their nightly sports talk show FOX Sports LIVE. The show will be looking to rival ESPN’s SportsCenter and they will certainly have the talent and star power to put up a good fight.

Hosting the show will be Jay Onrait and Dan O’Toole. O’Toole is mostly known for his time as an anchor on TSN’s SportsCentre. Opinion and analysis segments will be hosted by Charissa Thompson, who left ESPN in order to return to FOX Sports, while former sports stars Donovan McNabb, Gary Payton, Andy Roddick and Ephraim Salaam will provide their insight and opinion.

“We are so excited to welcome Gary, Donovan and Ephraim to FOX Sports and we’re thrilled to have Charissa back in the family,” FOX Sports Executive Vice President, Studio Production Scott Ackerson said. “The group officially unveiled today, with Andy, represents some of the best in their fields, and we are confident that they’ll provide a fresh, unique perspective to the sports news of the day, creating engaging and entertaining television.”

The show will be debuting  at 11:00 PM ET on August 17, with additional editions airing at 12:00 AM ET and 1:00 AM ET.
