ICYMI: The week on Front Row
E:60 wrapped up its Fall 2012 slate of shows with another example of award-winning storytelling at its finest.
That storytelling takes a deep, talented team of professionals to tell it in a way that E:60’s growing legion of fans has come to expect over six seasons of the news magazine.
In the video above, meet those people in their “We are. . .” reel.
ICYMI: Highlights from the past week on Front Row
• Jim Durham, lead play-by-play commentator for the NBA on ESPN Radio since the package began airing on the network in January 1996, passed away last weekend at his home in Tomball, Texas (outside of Houston). Front Row reported and then gathered reactions to the sad news.
• Call Me Maybe? ESPN’s Mark Schlereth was inspired by the news that young NFL stars Robert Griffin III and Cam Newton were exchanging phone numbers after a recent game. Schlereth and his ESPN Radio cohorts went to work on their version of Carly Rae Jepsen’s song.
• As part of ESPN’s “Salute to Veterans Week,” Team ESPN volunteers have expressed support for troops, veterans and military families in a variety of ways. Earlier this week, ESPN employees in Bristol, Conn. and in New York City assembled more than 1,200 USO deployment kits for troops.
• Hannah Storm’s SportsCenter special NASCAR Face to Face aired this week. Front Row had a podcast with Storm discussing her access to the athletes, her strategy for doing these type of interviews and more. An all-access photo slide show from Storm’s show’s open and close tapings is included.
