Amy Kunkel

I joined ESPN in March 2012, which makes me a rookie at the Worldwide Leader. I grew up watching ESPN but never imagined I would ever have the chance to work here and feel incredibly lucky to have this opportunity. I have been a sports fan for as long as I can remember. Born in East Lansing, MI, I grew up in a house of Spartans where one of my first memories is of my parents taking me to see Magic Johnson play at MSU. As a kid I moved to Buffalo, NY (insert snow joke here) where I quickly learned two things: where to get the best chicken wings and if you aren’t a fan of football and hockey you should find a new place to live. Since then I have lived or worked in almost every major NY sports market and today reside firmly in New England territory. Still, I am (and always will be) loyal to my hometown teams: Go Bills! Go Sabres!
