Jodi Markley

At the start of the year Markley stepped into this role, adding oversight of the creative and studio direction group, the ESPN stats and information group and the L.A. Production Center to her purview. During the last year she and her team oversaw Euro 2016 coverage, success- fully executed the College Football Playoff National Championship “megacast,” and equipped new studios for several series. Her crew also helped create the remote facility EN-1, which supports Monday Night Football. The biggest story in cable this year has been live streaming, she says, noting, “Sports fans now have the opportunity to take their cable anywhere—to watch what they want, when they want and where they want.”
