Skylar Diggins is branching out beyond basketball again.

The only question is the launch date.

But the South Bend native, former Notre Dame women’s basketball All-American and current WNBA standout for the Tulsa Shock is about to become a talk show host.

Diggins will host a digital video program called “40/40 Live.” A client of rapper/record producer Jay Z’s Roc Nation Sports agency, Diggins, per a release, “will interview a variety of celebrity guests, where they’ll provide fresh and unfiltered conversations involving sports, fame and music.”

Jay Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan will serve as the show’s backdrop.

Said one reviewer: “They had me at Skylar Diggins. I’d watch her talk about starting forest fires, planting tomatoes or whatever is she has on her mind.”
