When the NBA season was interrupted on the night of March 11, it essentially signified the end of live sports domestically and sent ESPN into adjustment and innovation mode.
Now, with the season re-started, Front Row takes a look back at the way ESPN helped bridge the gap between early spring and mid-summer when the sports we love cautiously began returning.

The timeline below is a fraction of ESPN’s successes and solutions since March 11. As Vice President, Production, Mike McQuade, wrote in a recent email to his Boxing team, that among a long list of accomplishments created 350 edit elements for Top Rank’s return: “It has always been the people that make ESPN great, perhaps no greater example in my 33 years than this group, during this time. Just incredible.”
