ESPN’s production operations team once again supported an industry-leading number of live events across our platforms over the last year in collaboration with groups all across the company.

As the team finalizes preparations for the College Football Playoff National Championship (Monday, Jan. 8, 8 p.m. ET, ESPN) and the year ahead, let’s look at its impressive stats from 2023.

“2023 marked another year of extraordinary innovation, quality, and teamwork across the production operations team. The year once again included an industry-leading schedule of live events, in addition to thousands of daily studio shows, managing hundreds of home studios, the launch of a new Bristol studio, and so much more.

“I am extraordinarily grateful for this team and their continued dedication day in and day out. 2024’s strong start continues Monday as a year of planning and countless hours of preparation culminate with the CFP National Championship!”
