120 Sports, the OTT network, announced Alexa Datt and Michael Kim as its leading talent team for the newly relocated The Morning Run, the live-produced, national sports show that combines game highlight video, live guests, and social interaction in a quick and easy format. Datt and Kim will co-host the daily show from 8:00-11:00 a.m. (EST) from its new location at the Major League Baseball Advanced Media studios in Manhattan’s Chelsea Market.
MAXX Client Alexa Datt is the newest addition to 120 Sports. She serves as the full time in-stadium host at Citi Field for the Mets as well as the Mets preseason sideline reporter for SportsNet NY. Datt has worked as a sideline reporter across many sports for the past seven years and has guest hosted for Bleacher Report and appeared on the Players Tribune radio show on Sirius XM. Most recently, Datt started the widely popular “Datt’s What She Said” podcast, a mix of sports talk, comedy and exclusive interviews that has featured such stars as Mike Tyson, Oscar De La Hoya, Katie Nolan, Jim Lampley, and Victor Cruz.
“By taking the electric personality we see in Datt’s podcast along with her natural ability for hosting native digital sports content and pairing it with Kim’s wealth of experience on the national sports stage, The Morning Run will continue to offer sports fans everything they are looking for in a national morning show,” says 120 Sports Executive Producer, Joe Riley.
Expanding the production footprint of 120 Sports to include New York will allow deeper integration with 120 Sports partners, leading to greater access to different voices and experts to discuss the timeliest topics in the world of sports and entertainment in real-time. Datt and Kim will be joined by diverse special guests and reoccurring contributors on a daily basis.
“I am thrilled to join the 120 Sports family, and co-host The Morning Run with Michael Kim, an amazing sports broadcasting veteran,” says Datt. “I am excited about the unique format of the show which incorporates traditional and new media platforms for what is sure to be an amazing, integral sports experience for our viewers.”
