Those who tune in to ESPN's morning show "Cold Pizza" on a regular basis may notice a few changes Monday morning. Most noticeably, the show is no longer "Cold Pizza". Tossed out, well, like yesterday's leftovers, in addition to an upgrade to High Definition, and a move from New York to ESPN's HQ in Bristol, Connecticut, the show is getting a new name, and some new panelists according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"Cold Pizza" will become "ESPN First Take," though it will continue to be hosted by Jay Crawford and Dana Jacobson. It also will have "1st and 10" segments with two commentators daily from a pool that includes "Cold Pizza" regular Skip Bayless plus Stephen A. Smith, Patrick McEnroe and ESPN.com's Jemele Hill.
I don't watch Cold Pizza that often, but I think Dana Jacobson is a really good reporter and host. And the show has gotten better since Woody Paige left on a regular basis. If only he could take Skip Bayless with him. The addition, though, of Patrick McEnroe, could actually be pretty entertaining.
