Mike Skarka

I joined ESPN as a member of the communications department in October of 2014 after graduating from Endicott College with a bachelor of science in sport management. Today, I execute communications and publicity strategies for ESPN’s pro sports properties. When I first came to ESPN I was immersed in its history and was responsible for the development and publicity efforts surrounding the archive. My passion and involvement in sports started at a very young age. I grew to appreciate everything from golf and ski racing, to baseball and basketball, and everything in between. Outside of sports I enjoy trying new foods and restaurants, as well as being outdoors as much as possible. Growing up in central Maine allowed for great access to a variety of sports and other recreational activities. Although the city of Boston may not have been right in my backyard, I’ve always been a New England sports fan. The high level of success and the passion the region has for its teams have played a large role in the sports fan, and professional I am today.
