Mike Florio, Darren Rovell To Host Their Own Shows On Versus

According to Variety, Mike Florio, Lead Writer for NBC's Pro Football Talk and Darren Rovell, CNBC's Sports Business Reporter will both be getting their own shows.

Florio will anchor an hour-long football special, as yet unnamed, on Friday nights from 6-7 PM EST, with Rovell to follow him in a half-hour block. Florio's special is scheduled to run throughout football season, but there's no word on whether or not Rovell's show has such a timeline.

According to the post, Versus - to become the NBC Sports Network on January 2nd, 2012 - is also planning a daily sports recap show to air at six each weeknight as well, but plans for that show are still on the drawing board.

Florio's expertise, especially as it pertains to NFL transactions, will presumably be a big part of the show, but it's anyone guess what Rovell will talk about - after all, his field covers an awful lot of topics, and his tendency to tweet pictures of fried anything from state fairs makes the show that much more..uh, appetizing.
