ESPN's Anderson anchors 'Wipeout'
New obstacle course show to debut Tuesday

After co-hosting the late night "SportsCenter,” Monday through Thursday from Bristol, Conn., he flies to Los Angeles to handle his "Wipeout” duties, which includes providing a lot of voiceovers.

When ESPN switches to a live "SportsCenter” in mornings this August, Anderson said he expects to shift to the 10 p.m. "SportsCenter.” Eventually, he said, the late night "SportsCenter” will shift to a Los Angeles studio, and he won't be leaving Bristol.

"My Oklahoma wife's not going to Los Angeles,” Anderson said. "It's amazing how someone who can hear a tornado siren and doesn't even blink is afraid the next earthquake's coming the second she moves to California.”
