Behind The Scenes
Just for Fun
Hey sports fans! I’m Shannon, the Communications Intern for summer 2016 at ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Connecticut. Having grown up in the greatest city in the world, New York, it was hard not to become a sports fan. Having a love (or hate) for the Yankees was unavoidable and picking whether you wanted to be an Islander or Ranger fan was just customary. What wasn’t inevitable was deciding to go to school at the University of South Carolina, where college football would become an immense part of my life. Through my passion for studying and playing sports I had the opportunity to work for Major League Baseball, The Masters Golf Tournament, and South Carolina Athletics. My latest feat was scoring an internship at ESPN where I continue to grow my writing abilities and sports knowledge.
