While Morse is a 23-year vet of ESPN, she has an idea of what the company’s partners need as well. In her previous role as an associate at Dow, Lohnes & Albertson, she represented media clients such as Cox, Comcast and Gannett. All good experience for the hundreds of negotiations, litigations and literally billions of dollars of deals she manages day in and day out. When it comes to inspiration, she turns to her mother, “who got her journalism degree when she had four children and was a reporter in a male-dominated newspaper industry.”
