Tracy Morgan is headed to The ESPYS!

The acclaimed actor and comedian, who currently stars on the critically acclaimed The Last O.G., will host The 2019 ESPYS, airing live from Los Angeles on July 10th. He will be joined by top celebrities from sports and entertainment to commemorate the past year in sports by recognizing major sports achievements, reliving unforgettable moments, and saluting the leading performers and performances.

“I am very excited to be hosting The ESPYS,” said Morgan. “I hope my Uncle Sidney Poitier is there with my biological father Tony Dorsett and my second cousin Herschel Walker. And Bo Jackson I want my two dollars back!”

“Tracy is effortlessly funny and deeply passionate about sports,” added ESPYS executive producer Maura Mandt. “He’s a natural choice to host The ESPYS and we’re thrilled to have him. Few people can own a room like Tracy Morgan, and I can’t wait to see what he has in store for the show.”

With nominees and more details to be announced at a later date, The ESPYS helps to raise awareness and funds for the V Foundation for Cancer Research, the charity founded by ESPN and the late basketball coach Jim Valvano at the first ESPYS back in 1993. ESPN has helped raise close to $97 million for the V Foundation over the past 26 years.

Airing live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, The 2019 ESPYS will premiere Wednesday, June 10th @ 8PM ET/PT on ABC.
