    Peyton Manning will take the stage to host the ESPY Awards.

    The retired, two-time Super Bowl champion quarterback will preside over the July 12 show honoring the past year's best athletes and sports moments. The show will air live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

    Manning says the show's 25th anniversary will include moments from the past.

    He retired from the NFL two years ago, ending a career in which he became the league's winningest quarterback. He won nine ESPYs during his career.
