ESPN NBA Reporter Malika Andrews On Life Inside The Walt Disney World Resort

Reporting challenges, social distance devices, meal prep: Andrews shares those insights and more

From Get Up to SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt, and seemingly every ESPN platform in-between, NBA reporter Malika Andrews has been the definitive voice on life inside the NBA’s Florida Campus at the Walt Disney World Resort – home of the NBA restart.

Andrews, along with her producer Malinda Adams, were among the first media members to arrive in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., on June 29. She has kept fans informed on everything from social distancing guidelines to meal prep to – of course – breaking news of the day.

Andrews is currently scheduled to remain at the Walt Disney World Resort through the conclusion of the NBA Finals.

In the video above, Andrews provides insight into what a day in her life has been like and what the challenges are from a reporting standpoint. In the video in the sidebar below, Andrews discusses the social distancing device given to people working in the NBA’s Florida Campus.

Malinda Adams produced the videos.


ESPN Vice President, Production, Mike Shiffman, regarding Malika Andrews: “Malika is an extremely talented and versatile reporter who has the ability to make impactful contributions to a variety of platforms. Whether it’s live SportsCenter updates, radio and podcast appearances, or digital content, Malika can go from one platform to the next effectively and seamlessly, and that’s really what this assignment requires.”
