“My first ESPYS was 2005, and I have been a fan, coming back every year since. It is the biggest night of the year for sports. Every year I leave feeling so inspired! I am excited to be able to help celebrate, laugh and cry about the past year in sports with everyone. It’s going to be a great night and one full of more than a few surprises,” Danica said of the opportunity.
