Elle Duncan began her career at ESPN on Monday at 11 a.m. co-hosting “SportsCenter” and her first show went off without a hitch.
The former Atlantan was best known for her time on V-103 before moving to Boston in late 2013 to cover sports full time.

In a bizarre snafu last Thursday evening, 11 Alive aired the first half of a new episode of “Jeopardy.’ But after a commercial break, the station replayed the second half of Wednesday’s episode.
John Deushane, the general manager, said there was some sort of technical snafu involving a back-up server that has never happened before. He said unfortunately, the network is not allowed to re-air the episode properly. So if you want to know who won and what questions/answers were posed, you’ll have to go here.
Deushane, by the way, was named “Broadcaster of the Year” by the Georgia Association of Broadcasters (GAB) this past Friday. Since he joined WXIA-TV six years ago, the station has won GAB’s Station of the Year four times and multiple Emmys for “Station Excellence.” The station pulled in 25 Emmys this past Saturday.
