ESPN Front Row kicks off its existence with “A Day In The Life” project, an ambitious plan to cover ESPN’s world in real-time still photography beginning at 12 a.m. Wednesday, March 30 and unfolding over the ensuing 24 hours.
There wasn’t a better way to start a blog that will offer a window into ESPN. Watch this space for the photos to start appearing around midnight.
We hope you enjoy these visions of ESPN’s employees at work all around the world.
