Serena Williams Will Host The 2024 ESPYs In July

Serena Williams will serve as host of The ESPYS, which is an annual sports awards programme on ESPN, scheduled for July. The 23-time major winner, who is now retired, will take the lead for the fourth time as the event honours the achievements, athletes, and noteworthy moments of the previous year.

On July 11, a live broadcast of the ceremony from Hollywood’s Dolby Theatre will take place.

Expressing her excitement, Williams stated, “This is a long-held aspiration for me, and I am thrilled for the opportunity.” She emphasised an exceptional year in sports as well as the outstanding accomplishments of female athletes. Having won 12 ESPYs in her tennis career, Williams is looking forward to honouring the athletic community in July.

On July 10, an eight-part series titled “In the Arena: Serena Williams” will debut on ESPN+, chronicling her remarkable career. The ESPYS will take place at the same time as this. Williams has broadened her interests since retiring following the 2022 US Open.

She introduced a beauty line in April and founded a venture capital firm that helps women and people of colour develop early-stage businesses. Additionally, she welcomed her second daughter in August last year.
