Sage Steele will appear on ESPN's "NBA Countdown" shows on Fridays and Sundays this season.

Steele will join Doug Collins, Jalen Rose and Bill Simmons on the show, which debuts on Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. ET. Steele signed a multiyear extension to her contract, and will also continue to be a host on "SportsCenter" and be part of on-site coverage at the NBA Finals.

"I'm thrilled to continue my career at ESPN and to embark on this exciting, new challenge," Steele said in a news release. "I love the NBA, and like millions of other fans, I'm looking forward to the season tipoff and to guiding some great discussion from our expert analysts."

Magic Johnson, one of the four hosts of NBA Countdown last season, left the network earlier this month. Michael Wilbon will be a part of ESPN's NBA coverage but won't host the show this season.

For Wednesday broadcasts, the NBA Countdown team will include Rose, Doris Burke and Avery Johnson.

Steele joined ESPN in 2007.
