LAS VEGAS – ESPN has announced the signing of sports betting analyst and host of the network show Daily Wager Doug Kezirian to a new multiyear contract on Tuesday.
Kezirian will now be hosting the Daily Wager program from Las Vegas in ESPN’s brand new state-of-the-art studio at the LINQ Hotel and Experience.
Kezirian has been with ESPN since 2012 and has hosted the Daily Wager since its launch in March 2019. He has covered sports betting for over 15 years along with being the co-founder of a sports wagering radio show which landed in an ESPN radio affiliate station.
“On a personal level, I’m thrilled that I’m able to stay with ESPN and continue what we started in the betting space,” said Kezirian. “I’ve been along for the ride for many years including hosting Daily Wager and I think this move to Las Vegas is just the latest step in the overall vision that ESPN has for sports betting. I’m incredibly fortunate and grateful that the team believes in me to help launch this in Las Vegas.”
The sports network has also brought in Joe Fortenbaugh and Tyler Fulghum to be full time analyst/host working from Las Vegas and will add to the ESPN roster focused on legal sports betting.
Fortenbaugh, who is the co-founder of NationalFootballPost.com and host of a sports betting podcast called “The Sharp 600,” will continue his role as an analyst to Daily Wager but will also be co-hosting a new digital ESPN sports betting program that will launch for football season.
Fulgham previously sports wagering and fantasy analyst and co-host of Sauce & Shram show, will also be an analyst for Daily Wager and a co-host for ESPN’s new digital show.
The Daily Wager program was created to educate the millions that are involved with sports betting and inform sports fans about placing wagers on sports with deep analysis. The show moved to ESPN2 last year after starting on ESPNEWS.
The show has been off the air due to the pandemic but will return in time for football season on Sept 8. Throughout the season you can catch Daily Wager Tuesday-Friday at 6 p.m. EST along with a Sunday-Monday show at 9 a.m. EST.
