Serena Williams will be the host of the 2024 ESPY Awards.

ESPN announced the pick of the tennis legend as this year’s ESPYS host during Disney’s upfront presentation to advertisers Tuesday, with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest breaking the news on stage. The event will be held July 11.

The ESPY Awards are ESPN’s annual awards show celebrating the best of sports. Last year Patrick Mahomes and LeBron James were among the big winners, and for the first time the program went without a host (due in part to the ongoing Writers Guild strike).

Williams, of course, retired from professional tennis nearly two years ago.

That being said, she has kept busy, with media being one of her top priorities. Williams inked a two-book deal with Random House Publishing last year, beginning with an “intimate” memoir.

And she also launched a new production company, Nine Two Six Productions, last year, coinciding with a first-look TV deal at Amazon Studios and the appointment of Caroline Currier as president. Williams was also the focus of an ESPN docuseries, announced at last year’s Disney upfront.
