Chronology
Preceded by ABC's Wide World of Sports

ESPN Sports Saturday is an American sports anthology series produced by the ESPN sports network. Hosted by Hannah Storm, it premiered at 4 p.m. ET April 3, 2010 on the American Broadcasting Company.[1] ESPN, which like ABC is controlled by The Walt Disney Company, has handled ABC's sports coverage since 2006 under the ESPN on ABC umbrella, and ESPN Sports Saturday could be considered a descendent of ABC's Wide World of Sports.

Content on the series initially included Winners Bracket,[2] a segment consisting of highlights, plus other ESPN documentary programs, including Homecoming with Rick Reilly, 30 for 30 and E:60. Episodes will air on Saturdays through August, then resume at the conclusion of the NCAA Division I FBS football season.[3] Upon the show's return after the college football season, the Winners Bracket hour of the block was replaced by a new weekly discussion series showcasing the best of the ESPN sports discussion shows which provide all new exclusive content on the upcoming week's big events and match-ups.
