Amy Phillips

I oversee strategic communications for ESPN’s Ad Sales, Affiliate Sales, Marketing and Research groups and I am a voracious media consumer – be it books, magazines, TV, music, theater and, of course, sports. A Midwesterner at heart and a St. Louis Cardinals fan, I am grateful every day to call New York City home. I’ve spent the majority of my career in sports, with the exception of a few years at Cartoon Network. An alumnus of the College of the Holy Cross, I hold out irrational hope that one day the school will recoup some of its former mid-century sports prowess.
