SportsCenter AM is a radio show on ESPN Radio hosted by ESPN Radio SportsCenter anchor Jay Reynolds. The show has been replaced by First and Last.[1] SportsCenter AM features scores from all the major sporting events including the NFL, NBA, NHL, and MLB. The show usually plays audio highlights for last minute shots, game winning homers, and other exciting events from the previous day's sporting events. All the major games are discussed at least twice during the show in a score fashion outside of the SportsCenter breaks, and exciting matches are usually mentioned at least three times.

SportsCenter AM lasts one hour from 4:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. ET, re-airing at 5:00 am ET. The show leads into Mike and Mike in the Morning. It runs much like the SportsCenter program on ESPN television. Reynolds recaps scores and plays audio highlights from a variety of sports. Interviews from ESPN Radio shows earlier in the day discussing what might happen in the game and postgame interviews shown on SportsCenter are also played. No live interviews or call-ins take place during the hour. Differences exist within the SportsCenter updates during the show. Instead of having an update every 20 minutes, Bob Picozzi only does one SportsCenter update at 4:30 a.m. A SportsCenter Express, hosted by Doug Brown, takes place where the normal SportsCenter breaks would be, at 4:20 and 4:40 a.m.
