Beth Chappell, producer
Chappell has worked at ESPN 22 years. The UEFA EURO 2016 is Chappell’s 12th international top-tier soccer tournament at ESPN after her debut as a feature producer during the 1999 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
What is your role in ESPN’s UEFA EURO 2016 production?
A member of the senior management team responsible for planning and managing all aspects of content and technical infrastructure. The majority of my responsibilities include helping to manage and supervise all ESPN English-language studio programming and match production.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of the ESPN EURO 2016 team?
What I enjoy most about working with the soccer team is that they are equally as passionate about their roles and the broadcasts as they are about the sport of soccer. The majority of the team has worked on the last four major soccer tournaments, so we have become a team in every sense of the word.
These tournaments are somewhat challenging in that the events last over a month. Everyone on our team has such a positive attitude and enjoyment about what we are doing that it shows in every aspect of our production.
