Bill Hofheimer

I joined ESPN in 2005 after the company acquired rights to Monday Night Football. The experience of working on this property and our NFL studio coverage has been an absolute thrill. We have such a talented, hard-working team and there’s nothing quite like being inside a production truck on a Monday night programs. Other programs I work on include ESPN’s soccer coverage, Around the Horn, and PTI. Prior to ESPN, I worked in PR for the Wide World of Sports Complex at Disney World, and I started my career in the athletic department at the University of Florida. Born and raised in Richmond, Va., I don’t know that I will ever get used to Connecticut winters but it’s a great place to live. My favorite teams are the University of Virginia (my alma mater) and the Atlanta Braves. I like television, film and music – broadening my interests every day with three young kids. I also love to travel and to run (albeit, short distances). You can follow me on Twitter at @bhofheimer_espn.
