Kevin Ota

Simply put, I am a sports junky and a tech nerd. I readily admit those facts. But lucky for me, it’s the perfect combination for my job overseeing strategic communications for ESPN’s digital and mobile platforms, which include ESPN.com, ESPN Local sites, ESPN3, ESPN mobile web and apps, digital audio, interactive and social games, fantasy sports, and more. I’m a San Francisco Bay Area native who roots for the A's and 49ers. But above all else, I’m a USC alum rooting for all Trojans throughout the NFL, MLB and even the few hanging on in the NBA. Fight On!
