Flores hosted the live afternoon edition of SportsCenter from noon - 3 p.m. with Chris McKendry until early September 2009, when he was replaced with John Buccigross. He is also a substitute host for Baseball Tonight.

Flores is a native of Houston, Texas. He graduated from the University of Houston with a B.A. in Radio/Television in 1992.[1][2]

Notable incidents[edit]

In 2006, Flores was co-anchoring ESPNEWS with Danyelle Sargent when she made her now infamous statement "What the fuck was that," due to technical difficulties. Flores was once fired for muttering the same curse word on-air in 2004 when he worked for KEYE in Austin, Texas on a taped segment that was not intended for air.[4]
