CNN Philippines Sports Desk (formerly Solar SportsDesk, or simply Sports Desk) is a 30-minute Philippine sports news television program broadcast by CNN Philippines. It is CNN Philippines' go-to program for all-sports news, specials, and interviews with sports personalities here and around the world, hosted by sports journalist Mico Halili on primetime and Andrei Felix on weekday mornings (also a sports anchor on CNN Philippines New Day and the morning edition of Newsroom). In its latest format, Sports Desk airs thrice every weekdays and weeknights, a morning edition at 11am (with a replay at 2:30pm), a primetime edition at 6:30pm and another at the usual 10pm timeslot.
Sports Desk was first broadcast on cable TV channel Solar Sports from 2004-2007 and returned on Solar News Channel by December 3, 2012, with a simulcast on Solar Sports until August 2014 following SNC's rebrand as 9TV.
As part of the expansion, Sports Desk also serves as a sports segment on some CNN Philippines newscasts. However, when major rolling news stories break across their timeslots, the Sports Desk program would either interrupt or pre-empt its normal broadcast. For instance, should the morning edition be pre-empted by a rolling coverage, a replacement live broadcast will take place at the 2:30 pm rerun timeslot.
On September 3, 2017, as an experiment, the primetime edition of Sports Desk was moved to an earlier timeslot at 6:30pm, after News Night divides its full hour single newscast into two 30-minute editions at 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
