ESPN Anchor Sage Steele Selling Her $1.6M Connecticut Home

ESPN SportsCenter’s co-host Sage Steele is selling her stately Avon, CT, home for $1,595,000. The sports journalist purchased the property in the Hartford suburb in 2017 for $1.24 million.

Steele also has a new role at SportsCenter, moving to the show’s 12 noon slot, from the 6 p.m. slot she had had since 2018. Along with the new gig, she’ll apparently also be moving to a new home.

The Indiana University grad has posted photos from her stylish abode, showing off her unabashed school pride on Instagram.

ESPN’s latest SportsCenter shakeup sees Sage Steele move to noon ET show, Elle Duncan head to 6 p.m. ET

There are some further changes ahead for ESPN’s SportsCenter lineup. As per a release from ESPN’s Andy Hall Tuesday, Sage Steele (who had been co-hosting the 6 p.m. ET SportsCenter alongside Kevin Neghandi since mid-2018, filling the slot previously held by Jemele Hill and Michael Smith’s SC6) will now shift to the noon Eastern SportsCenter alongside Matt Barrie after the College Football Playoff. The regular spot alongside Barrie had been held by Elle Duncan (seen at left above), who went out on maternity leave earlier this month; when she returns in February, she’s now set to join Neghandi on the 6 p.m. SC. Here’s more from that release, which also mentions that Steele (seen at right above) is set to launch a new “periodic interview program” on ESPN+:

ESPN Promotes Elle Duncan to 6 p.m. SportsCenter; Sage Steele Moves to Noon Time Slot, Gets ESPN+ Show

ESPN is tinkering with the anchor lineup for its signature studio show SportsCenter.

Elle Duncan is being promoted to the 6 p.m. ET SportsCenter (the flagship hour) on weekdays with Kevin Negandhi, while Sage Steele will move from 6 p.m. to the noon hour alongside Matt Barrie on Mondays-Thursdays, the network announced Tuesday.

Why the move?

“We have a very talented and diverse set of voices on SportsCenter and a deep lineup of quality individuals who make up the team,” ESPN evp Norby Williamson said in a statement. “As we turn the page to 2021, we’re doing what we have always done – providing new opportunities for some anchors to experience different shows and pairings while offering continuity and familiarity to our viewers with other editions.”

Duncan is currently on maternity leave, and will join Negandhi upon her planned return in February. During her time at ESPN, Duncan has

ESPN announced another talent shakeup on Tuesday.

Anchor Elle Duncan, who has been on maternity leave, will take over for Sage Steele on the 6 p.m. ET “SportsCenter” alongside Kevin Negandhi. Steele will move to the noon “SportsCenter” slot in Duncan’s former role alongside Matt Barrie. The move will take place after the College Football Playoff in mid-January.

The swap is another maneuver spearheaded by ESPN executive vice president Norby Williamson, who oversaw a recent network radio shakeup that pushed the network toward more of a strict sports focus and away from pop culture and politics. The altered radio lineup cut an hour off of Dan LeBatard’s show and played a role in his recent decision to leave the network amid creative differences with the network.

Williamson addressed the “SportsCenter” swap in the network’s announcement Tuesday.
