To commemorate Juneteenth, ESPN radio will have a special debut edition of The Intersection, a weekly show exploring the intersections of sports, race and culture, beginning on Friday at 6 p.m. following SportsTalk.

After this week, The Intersection will air weekly two-hour shows every Thursday at 6 p.m.

In collaboration with The Undefeated, ESPN's branch focusing on sports' impact on social justice and culture, The Intersection will be hosted by SportsCenter anchor Elle Duncan and The Undefeated columnist Clinton Yates and will feature other ESPN commentators throughout the series. During the weekly discussion, the show will focus on in-depth discussions surrounding social justice and sports. Starting in July, the program will also highlight a podcast version of the two-hour show.

You can catch the new show on the 600 ESPN El Paso Mobile App, powered by United Bank.
