Vanessa Miranda, associate producer, ESPN Deportes
Miranda has worked at ESPN for seven years. This is her fifth marquee international event for ESPN, including the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, 2014 Copa del Rey Final in Valencia, Spain, and the home and away 2011 El Clasico – Barcelona vs. Real Madrid – in Barcelona.
What is your role in ESPN’s UEFA EURO 2016 production?
I am responsible for all Spanish-language studio content originating from France for ESPN Deportes, as well as studio programming for ESPN International networks.
What do you enjoy most about being a part of the ESPN EURO 2016 team?
The first few days of the tournament were challenging since we did not have our studio set location on the banks of River Seine ready because of flooding from the river. We worked around it by putting together electronic news-gathering (ENG) and TVU (single operator field production unit) crews for our remote studio segments. This solution enhanced our shows because our hosts and commentators (Andres Agulla, Fernando Palomo and Tato Noriega) were able to file their reports from multiple match locations at the same time. I enjoy the process of being able to do something new such as operating the TVU and working through challenges in my job.
