The Evolution of SportsCenter

Session Info

Tuesday 6/27.10:30AM.Times Center

The signature news and information program on ESPN since 1979, SportsCenter invented a genre and set the standard for serving sports fans…something it continues to do today. But SportsCenter hasn’t been standing still—it has consistently evolved for more than 37 years, changing along with fans, across decades and devices, screens and experiences. Today, SportsCenter is truly a multi-platform brand that goes beyond television. Millions of sports fans connect with SportsCenter on digital and social media platforms, and the evolution of SportsCenter leans toward a true mix of linear and digital—it has been underway and will continue to accelerate. Two executives involved in the evolution on a daily basis as well as one of ESPN’s best-known and most social media active anchors will discuss the process.
