One good turn deserves another.

The Moynihan tour group visits with Michael Smith in the ESPN newsroom.

On Veterans’ Day, the USS Carl Vinson played host to ESPN for the Carrier Classic basketball game featuring North Carolina and Michigan State.

The U.S. Navy’s aircraft carrier was home not only to the game but also provided an amazing on-ship location for SportsCenter that week.

Wednesday, ESPN’s Bristol campus and SportsCenter anchor Kevin Negandhi played host to Rear Admiral Dennis Moynihan and his family for a tour.

Moynihan is the U.S. Navy’s Chief Of Information and serves as the Department of the Navy’s principal spokesman. He was an incredible host to our entire team in November, so after the great tour of the USS Carl Vinson Moynihan and the Navy provided, ESPN was more than happy to return the favor on the ESPN campus.
