One recent Saturday, my ESPN Images colleague Rich Arden and I had a chance to shoot several hours of SportsCenter in ways few fans have seen.
The result is the photo slideshow above that SportsCenter anchor Sara Walsh graciously agreed to narrate.
The 41 photos — culled from roughly 700 snapped — show our access to control rooms, screening rooms, production meetings — and, of course, the set — through SCAM (SportsCenter A.M.) and the 11 p.m. show.
In the slideshow, Sara discusses multi-colored scripts and how anchor teams transition from show to show. She also offers a tour of the screening room where the highlights for SportsCenter are cut.
We thank the entire SportsCenter production team and especially Sara and fellow anchors Linda Cohn, Scott Van Pelt, and Steve Levy for letting us into their sometimes chaotic world to capture some neat moments behind-the-scenes.
