Week in review

This week, Front Row visited the Londres Al Dia set built at Studio G in Bristol. The Spanish-language daily show is part of the comprehensive variety of London 2012 Olympics-themed specials and original news and information content that has been produced from London and across our studios around the globe.

Hosted by versatile sports expert Carolina Guillen and SportsCenter anchor Mauricio Pedroza, Londres Al Dia airs daily and recaps the best events of the day and the most memorable Olympic moments. The show is part of the Olympic programming lineup for ESPN in Mexico, Central America and ESPN Deportes in the U.S.

In the video above, the co-hosts are joined by Jo Allevato and Luis Baraldi, producers of the show, for a peek at the making of Londres Al Dia.

    ICYMI: Highlights from the past week at Front Row

•During the Television Critics Association (TCA) Summer Press Tour, ESPN Films announced its fall slate of 30 for 30 projects as well as the first four 30 for 30 Shorts, which will premiere on Grantland.com. Check out a preview of what’s to come in this season’s 30 for 30.

New photos of the the 2012 Monday Night Football team including; Mike Tirico, analyst Jon Gruden and sideline reporter Lisa Salters. The team made its debut Thursday in ESPN’s telecast of the Packers at Chargers preseason game, which also had some historic significance, as you’ll see below.

•Astute viewers may have noticed ESPN anchor Sara Walsh wearing some rather un-fashionable footwear on-air this week. Front Row chased down Walsh — it wasn’t too hard — to get an injury update.

Mike & Mike producer Liam Chapman handled the overnight Dwight Howard trade announcement with great composure. Also, take a look at ESPN analysts’ thoughts on the major NBA trade.

•For the first time, a woman was part of an NFL officiating team, and ESPN telecast this milestone when the Packers-Chargers game aired. Check out the photo below of Shannon Eastin, who served as a line judge during the game.

It was another in a long line of sports milestones for women that have aired across ESPN outlets.
