WNBA star Chiney Ogwumike has earned her own podcast at ESPN called Chiney. During each episode, Ogwumike will “discuss current events in the sports world, primarily through the lens of an active professional athlete.” Moreover, Ogwumike will open each episode with a monologue before introducing a special guest.
As Ogwumike moves on to her own podcast, SportsCenter anchor Elle Duncan will take her place on the First Take, Her Take podcast. Duncan will join co-hosts Kimberley A. Martin and Charly Arnolt.
“First Take, Her Take has been an amazing experience where my co-hosts Kimberley A. Martin and Charly Arnolt instantly became my sisters. I’ll miss it dearly, but now it is time for me to pass the rock to my teammate Elle Duncan who is going to be a slam dunk,” Ogwumike said.
“I do not take for granted the opportunity to work with these ladies on this particular project. The perspective is unique, the conversations engaging and honestly the sisterhood is so strong with this crew! No one can replace Chiney but I plan on shouting out Nigeria at least once an episode in her honor,” Duncan added.
Chiney will debut on ESPN on June 8. Every episode will be available through ESPN’s YouTube channel as well.
