Jenn Sterger to Co-Host New Versus Show ‘The Daily Line’

From Florida State to Maxim, Playboy and the New York Jets, Jenn Sterger has been everywhere in the last decade.

Soon enough, she'll be in your living room on a daily basis.

That's because Sterger will be hosting The Daily Line on Versus, the network's first live show, which will run daily beginning April 5 at 6 p.m.

"Most shows have the same formula, with hosts in suits in front of a plasma screen showing highlights," producer Andy Meyer told the USA Today. "This show will curate what's happening all over the Web that day. And we don't want to have a lot of people shouting about sports, there's already too much of that."

Sound familiar? Here's a hint: ESPN2's SportsNation.

According to Meyer, the show will field tweets, texts, calls and e-mails from viewers and use them on air, much like the ESPN2 spot hosted by Michelle Beadle and Colin Cowherd. SportsNation has about 650,000 Twitter followers while Versus has over 4,100, and Sterger alone has more than 4,300.

"I always felt sports TV was a bunch of guys in suits yelling at me," says Sterger, who had a column with and has served as a spokesperson for Dr. Pepper. "Other shows don't exactly know how to use social media and the Web. Since I'm practically living on the Web, I've got a pulse on what going on out there. And I'll be personally accessible to the audience, except for my personal phone number."

Other hosts for the New York City-based show include Liam McHugh, Reese Waters and Rob DeAngelis. In 2007, Versus offered a short-lived weekly sports entertainment show Sports Unfiltered, starring Dennis Miller.
