It’s been a bittersweet week for the ESPN Front Row staff.
There’s been levity, business news, inspiration and unexpected tragedy.
Earlier in the week, we learned ESPN Radio’s Mike Greenberg kept his word and dressed as teen singer Justin Bieber.
He did this to settle losing “The Sheets Of Integrity” wager with Mike & Mike In the Morning co-host Mike Golic. Joe Faraoni’s photo gallery provided the on-set details; the video above gives you more behind the scenes access.
We got some insight into ESPN’s new Pac-12 deal with Burke Magnus, Senior Vice President, College Sports Programming.
And we learned that College Football Live analyst Brock Huard has the knack for pinpoint passing even several years after his NFL retirement.
This weekend, learn how NFL Live analyst Tedy Bruschi is helping injured soldiers and challenging himself with a tremendous feat on a planned visit to Africa.
Next week, visit Front Row as Team USA for the FIFA 2011 Women’s World Cup is announced on campus; learn what it’s like for ESPN The Magazine’s staff as it produces its first-ever “live” issue, performed on a New York City stage; peek behind the scenes as three ESPN personalities talk about three pending sitcom pilots.
In closing, we are saddened to report that Kim Jessup, a senior publicist in ESPN Communications, passed away this week while on vacation in Hawaii. She was just weeks shy of her 30th birthday.
She was a great colleague and friend to many and will be missed.
