Is Hannah Storm leaving ESPN? I heard something about Magic Johnson taking over her job on the NBA Countdown show.

Storm, 49, no longer serves as the show’s host since ESPN initiated a new format, eliminating her position. The new Kia NBA Countdown pregame show relocated to Los Angeles from Bristol, Conn., and now features Johnson, 52, in an expanded role, though not as an official replacement for Storm. According to a spokesperson for the network, “Hannah will continue to have a prominent on-air role with the network.”
