Kaepernick says ''I'm looking forward to sharing the stage with Cam'' for Cartoon Network's fourth annual ''Hall of Game Awards,'' which air Feb. 17. Newton says ''we're both high-energy guys, ready to get down to business.''

Viewers vote for their favorite sports stars and moments of the year. Previous hosts include Tony Hawk and Shaquille O'Neal.
