“In each special we look to bring something new to viewers, whether that’s insight into a sports figure they think they already know or introducing a new face that is about to break through,” said Storm. “This special is no different as we talk to a diverse lineup of intriguing newsmakers across the sports landscape who have made a meaningful impact on their sport or society and those who are still making their imprint. These people will continue to be big stories in sports in the years ahead.”

  • University of Southern California athletic director Pat Haden speaks candidly and emotionally of the things that matter to him the most, including his family.
  • Mo’ne Davis, the 2014 Little League World Series sensation, on what her life in the past year has been like and her interest in history and civil rights as she prepares to enter high school.
  • Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones discusses the civil unrest that took over Baltimore earlier this year and speaks about what he’s doing to give younger generations an opportunity towards success
  • NBA rookie Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, welcomes viewers into his family’s New Jersey home and discusses going from perennial college hoops powerhouse Kentucky to the NBA.

The program is hosted from the National Academy in New York City, a museum and school that for nearly two centuries has been one of the most vibrant centers of fine art in the country. Also featured will be the work of award-winning and honored portrait artist Yuka Imata, an instructor at the academy, whose paintings and artwork have been exhibited across the United States as well as internationally.

Storm created the Face to Face series in January, 2012, with the debut show featuring Tim Tebow. Past editions have focused on the NFL, NBA and NASCAR, and have included high-profile personalities such as Clay Matthews, J.J. Watt, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Arian Foster, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Aaron Rodgers, Carmelo Anthony, Jimmie Johnson, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Russell Wilson, among many others.

  • ABC & ESPN Combine to Televise NBA Regular-Season Games Four Days Per Week

Beginning in January, ESPN on ABC will launch a new, weekly prime-time NBA series with the debut of Saturday Night NBA on ABC. The exclusive, eight-game schedule – featuring the sport’s biggest stars and most compelling matchups – will begin January 23, 2016 with weekly game telecasts at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Game selections will be announced in the coming weeks. (The ABC schedule is below).

As a result of this new prime-time series, ABC and ESPN will now combine to televise NBA games four days per week (Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday), January-April, including three in prime-time.

ESPN will continue to televise weekly, prime-time doubleheaders on Wednesdays and Fridays, generally at 8 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. throughout the regular-season.

John Skipper, ESPN President:

“The creation of Saturday Night NBA on ABC is an important moment in the long, successful relationship between ESPN and the NBA. The NBA’s massive popularity continues to open doors for new, collaborative opportunities, and this new series demonstrates ESPN’s commitment to showcase the NBA as often – and across as many platforms – as possible. Saturday night games will be highlighted by the NBA’s biggest stars, top rivalries and most compelling storylines. We expect to establish this series as a big-game destination for NBA fans, along the lines of what we’ve accomplished in college football with Saturday Night Football on ABC.”

Ben Sherwood, Disney/ABC TV President:

“Through our great partnership with ESPN, we’re thrilled to be able to bring the best in basketball to our prime-time viewers on Saturdays beginning this January while building on our great Sunday afternoon NBA lineup.”

Tamika Catchings, Chicago Bulls Capture First-Ever Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards

To Tweet:  es.pn/1I2f7ld 

Highlights from the Event to be Televised on ESPN July 23 

At a ceremony held Tuesday at the Conga Room at L.A. Live, the Chicago Bulls and Tamika Catchings, (WNBA’s Indiana Fever) were honored for the positive impact they have on their community, taking home the team and individual honors at the first-ever Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards, presented by ESPN and PlayStation®.  The inaugural event brought together various sports leagues and governing bodies to pay tribute to the collective good of sports and to raise more than $500,000 in net proceeds for The V Foundation’s Stuart Scott Memorial Cancer Fund, as well as funding various grants.

Catchings, honored with the Sports Humanitarian of the Year, received a $75,000 grant to advance the impact of her charity, Catch the Stars Foundation. Catchings teaches young girls and boys about embracing their differences, building their self-esteem and overcoming obstacles. The Foundation also promotes fitness, literacy and mentoring to youth in Indianapolis. Catchings has served on the U.S. Department of State’s Council to Empower Women and Girls through Sports and has supported countless programs in the community through her unwavering volunteer efforts and financial support.

“I am humbled and very appreciative of the ESPN family, along with all of the people who voted for my Catch the Stars Foundation and me,” Catchings said. “Winning this award is way more valuable than the monetary donation that comes along with it – it’s about being able to continue to impact the lives of so many youth that aspire to dream and reach their goals. We will continue pouring our efforts into the lives of our youth through our fitness, literacy and mentoring programs. What an honor and a blessing to be able to bless others!”

She was selected from a category that featured other finalists Anquan Boldin, San Francisco 49ers (NFL), John Cena (WWE) and Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers (NHL). Each of the finalists received a $25,000 grant to the charity related to their humanitarian efforts.

The Chicago Bulls, which won in the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year category, received a $75,000 grant to the qualified charity related to its award-winning humanitarian efforts. The Chicago Bulls’ work in the community is a collaborative effort among the team’s players, fans, corporate partners, community partners and front office staff. Last year alone, the Bulls organized more than 100 community events focused on youth education, the military, violence prevention and health and wellness. More than 30,000 people were impacted as a result of their continuous demonstration of how teamwork between athletes and the team’s community relations can create a significant impact on surrounding communities and causes. Additionally, the Bulls distributed $2.5 million in cash and in-kind donations in support of local organizations.

Accepting for the Bulls was President of Chicago Bulls Charities Nancy Reinsdorf who said, “It’s overwhelming to see the response of everyone in this room tonight and the outpouring of emotions. To me, it’s so invigorating and reenergizing that we are going to leave here and not just change the lives of the three community partners we have chosen through this grant, but to be able to go back and show that we are recognized for our work and then go out there and do more good work.”

The other finalists for the Sports Humanitarian Team of the Year were the Portland Timbers (MLS), San Francisco 49ers (NFL) and WWE Community Relations. Each received a $25,000 grant.

Also recognized during the evening were the four (previously announced) Stuart Scott ENSPIRE (ESPN + inspire) Award winners — individuals and causes that utilized a risk-taking and innovative approach to help others in need. The honorees were Pete Carroll, “Like A Girl” Campaign, Bud and Sue Selig and the You Can Play Project and they each received a $25,000 grant.

ESPN will televise a 30-minute special featuring highlights from the Sports Humanitarian of the Year Awards next Thursday, July 23 at 8:30 p.m. ET.
