Storm, most recently on CBS' "The Early Show," will co-anchor the middle three hours of ESPN's new daytime news block.
ESPN currently airs a live "SportsCenter" at 2 a.m. Eastern each day. That one-hour show is repeated six times between 6 a.m. and noon with only occasional updates for breaking news.
"You look at Fox News and CNN, it's inconceivable that they would be on tape for that amount of time," said Norby Williamson, the network's executive vice president of production. "The sports world is evolving in that direction. Things are happening all the time."
