Any must-see interviews or segments can be viewed and shared on the ESPN 97.5 Livestream. Viewers with a hot take can engage with all the shows via a real-time moderated chat and native donation integration.
Viewers takes range from on-topic, ("the Astros need to hit better...") to on-camera ("stop moving your arms like that, Barry, they're jiggling"). For the hosts, it's a whole new element to the broadcast game.
The Bench's Zierlein says the Livestream "gives people insight into the entirety of the show, which includes the things they hear, but also the things they can't see. Now they can see them and hear them." The NFL Draft guru says "it makes you more aware, as a host, of the physical and what you're doing in the moment."
