It’ll be 29 years at ESPN for me come the fall of 2015 (the only job I’ve ever had) after joining merely to help with the America’s Cup for three months. I like to say I simply kept showing up. I’ve worked on almost every sport, plus answered viewer calls and letters (people used to write!), given tours, written the company newsletter and once drove NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon to the local airport. My travels have been varied…I’ve been to Martinsville and Super Bowls; the America’s Cup (all 3) in San Diego and College GameDay in the sport’s meccas such as Eugene, Auburn, Lubbock, Stillwater and more; the NBA Finals and Indy 500; Wimbledon (11 times and counting) and the “other Bristol,” the one with a race track in Tennessee. These days, in addition to overseeing the Listings Area and www.ESPNMediaZone.com, my main areas are tennis, ratings, and corporate communications documents, including ESPN’s history and growth.
