Originally Hosted by Charissa Thompson and infrequent Around The Horn
panelist Michael Smith. After Thompson left to replace Michelle Beadle on SportsNation
NNL has since been hosted by Michael Smith, Jalen Rose, Hugh Douglas, and Rob Parker. Later Jemele Hill would take over co-hosting duties with Smith, eventually leading to a show re-branding (See below).
Segments in this show include some variation of "X or Y" - including Michael's favorite "Over/Under", plus the show-ending "Numbers You Need To Know," which runs down the good and bad numbers of the day.
On November 3, 2014, Numbers Never*
Lie was re-branded as His & Hers
