Behind The Scenes

Green Room Kate: Alex Morgan

Front Row recently debuted a new series as editorial assistant Kate Rosen transforms into “Green Room Kate” (@GreenRoomKate). While using her alter ego, Kate roams the studios, hallways, green rooms and other ESPN campus hot spots as celebrities, athletes and newsmakers visit the Bristol, Conn. campus.

The series continues today as Green Room Kate spends the day with U.S. Women’s National Team World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan during her Tuesday visit to ESPN.

Morgan came to ESPN for the release of her EA SPORTS FIFA 16 cover, but the standout forward also discussed Instagram, how it feels to be an international sweetheart and everything else in between. She even made time to sign some autographs and meet her adoring young fans.
