Drake has been tapped to produce/host the first annual year-end NBA award show on TNT which will air on June 26th. This is great news, because the Oscars suck. More from CBS.
“In light of the ESPYs. I don’t even know I’m allowed to say this yet, we’ll find out but I’ll say it anyway,” Drake tells John Calipari around the 29 minute mark of the podcast. “I’m actually producing and hosting the first annual NBA awards this year. I get to take the reigns on it, which again the ESPYs let me do great things and I thank them a lot for that. Usually award shows sometimes are a bit restrictive but they let me do a lot at the ESPYs, so we’ll expand on that concept. I love hosting, I love being in a room with iconic, legendary people that I look up to and having that pressure to make them laugh and enjoy their evening. Hopefully that will go well.”
