I spend my days in ESPN PR promoting our radio shows – including Mike & Mike, The Herd and SVP & Russillo – our remote operations, emerging technology and espnW teams. To me, there is nothing better than a college football Saturday. Whether I’m tailgating and cheering from the stands – or at home in my sweats watching on TV – there’s just something about the excitement and passion that goes into college ball. I should note, I grew up in Columbus, Ohio, where college football is a way of life. Prior to joining ESPN, I spent a few years on the other side of TV in cable operations at Time Warner Cable and before that I served a variety of clients at one of the Midwest’s largest PR agencies. I’m thrilled to now call the Worldwide Leader in Sports and Connecticut, my new home.
