Rachel Nichols' Sports News Show Set To Debut On CNN
CNN at 10:30pm ET Friday night will debut "Unguarded With Rachel Nichols," and the show "aims to explore sports from a big-picture perspective." For the main feature of the episode, Nichols and a camera crew accompanied Heat F LeBron James on his annual offseason trip to China. Nichols: "Sports shows on sports networks serve a specific audience. ... You’re talking to people who follow sports very avidly. News shows dip into sports nominally. Our lane is kind of in the middle of that." The show's lead producer, Kirby Bradley, came to CNN from HBO (ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER, 10/25).
