“We are thrilled Jen will continue her contributions to College GameDay and College Football Live,” said GameDay producer Drew Gallagher. “Her versatility and storytelling make her a valuable member of our team and we look forward to working with her for years to come.”

In addition to her role as a rotating host on College Football Live and a reporter on College GameDay, Lada will be a rotating host on Get Up and contributing host on SportsCenter.

Her college football expertise will be on full display entering Week 1 of the season. Lada will continue telling stories as a reporter for ESPN’s features unit and her work will appear across multiple platforms including SportsCenter and College GameDay.

“I’m thrilled and proud to be continuing my career at ESPN – a place where my versatility is truly appreciated and rewarded,” said Lada. “I’m still learning and growing as a broadcaster and I’m fortunate to be surrounded by the very best in this business who motivate and encourage me to continue evolving and bettering myself.”
