Behind the scenes at The View with
NBA Countdown’s Sage Steele

Today marks the third time that NBA Countdown’s Sage Steele has co-hosted The View (11 a.m. ET, ABC) – a task quite different from her work at ESPN.

When hosting Countdown on Fridays and Sundays (ESPN, ABC), Steele moderates discussion about key NBA storylines with an expert panel of analysts – Doug Collins, Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons.

In three co-hosting appearances on The View, Steele effortlessly has transitioned to discussing health care, parenting, celebrity news, politics and more with hosts Barbara Walters, Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy. She’s also interviewed special guests including Anita Hill and Nancy Grace.

“I learn something every time I come here – listening to other people’s opinions, being comfortable in giving your own, even if it is different – it’s a wonderful experience,” Steele said.

In the video above, Front Row went backstage with Steele, McCarthy and Shepherd at The View’s New York studios to learn more about Steele’s experience.

Catch Steele next on NBA Countdown Sunday, April 6, at 12:30 p.m. ET on ABC.
