The show debuted on March 11th, 2019, in Bristol, and will record at company headquarters again beginning September 7th, ESPN said in a statement. The development comes after ESPN signed a deal with Penn Entertainment last month, licensing its brand for sports betting. The deal will rebrand Penn’s sports betting product as ESPN Bet in 16 states this fall.
Under the terms of the agreement, Penn will have the 10-year right to use the ESPN Bet name in the US. The rebranding includes both the mobile app and website. At the time of the announcement, Penn had also noted that it was selling all of its Barstool Sports subsidiary to David Portnoy, who founded the sports and pop culture media company, in exchange for non-compete and other agreements.
The Linq Promenade is owned by Caesars Entertainment and was opened in 2013. Caesars Entertainment and ESPN opened the Linq Hotel studio in August 2020. The 6,000-square-foot facility includes three studios and features 12 cameras, including two exterior robotic cameras.

“ESPN created some great content and incredible memories during our time at the Las Vegas studio,” said Scott Clark, VP, Fantasy & Sports Betting Content. “With our new ESPN BET deal set to launch this fall, we felt it was best to return to our headquarters. We cannot thank everyone we worked with at Caesars Entertainment over the past few years and we wish them the best into the future.”
ESPN has also revealed a new weekly schedule for the program set to take place before the NFL. The show will be aired on ESPN2 five days a week from Thursday to Monday. The schedule also includes the addition of a Saturday morning show at 11 AM ET to preview the weekend football slate.
