One of the regular Friday highlights now ingrained in the noon ET SportsCenter is a segment called “Feel Good Friday.” It’s self-explanatory.
Today, the co-anchors are Nicole Briscoe and Randy Scott. SportsCenter’s Feel Good Friday feature focuses on Detroit Piston Jordan Bone and his mother.
Today on Front Row, Senior NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski and College GameDay/ABC Saturday Night Football reporter and NBA Countdown host Maria Taylor explain why they each felt compelled to deliver virtual commencement celebration addresses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
In addition, several other ESPN commentators ranging from Laura Rutledge to Michael Wilbon also have addressed graduating classes – in some cases, voluntarily – this unprecedented spring (see slideshow below the Taylor sidebar).
