LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s a way different kind of year, and so The ESPYs will be, too.
For the first time, the show will feature three hosts in remote settings and a changed focus. Instead of honoring the past year’s top athletes and moments in sports, the show is celebrating heroism and humanitarian aid.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, soccer star Megan Rapinoe and three-time WNBA champion Sue Bird will preside over the two-hour broadcast airing June 21 on ESPN.
All three will be live in the Seattle area.
Wilson’s singer wife, Ciara, is likely to make an appearance, too.
