If you’re struggling to maintain your composure in light of the looming Monday Night football doubleheader, ESPN just announced that Molly Qerim is now the full-time host of "First Take" and a contributor to "Mike & Mike."

“Molly is smart, resourceful and engaging,” said Marcia Keegan, ESPN vice president, production, who oversees First Take. “From day one, she has worked hard, been very prepared and is always asking for more information. She’s a team player who collaborates very well with Skip and Stephen A.”

Qerim stated, “I’m ecstatic to continue working with Skip and Stephen A. and look forward to contributing to Mike & Mike. These gentlemen are some of the best in the business. It’s an honor be on their team and back home with ESPN.”

Molly rejoined ESPN in July 2015 as interim host of "First Take."

Congratulations to Molly, and here are some photos for your viewing pleasure:
