Holly Rowe juggles many assignments for ESPN, working as a play-by-play announcer during the women’s collegiate basketball season and a sideline reporter for various sports ranging from college football and basketball to the NBA and WNBA. She’s also developed a video feature series for espnW entitled “Front Rowe.”
Each week, Rowe produces an in-depth feature that’s related to the college football game she’s covering or has covered as a sideline reporter. For instance, the Week 11 “Front Rowe” installment focused on an interesting aspect of the Nov. 2 Michigan-Michigan State game: Each school has a neurologist on the sidelines.
Rowe also is a one-person remote production unit for the “Front Rowe” series, with an assist from a Bristol, Conn. teammate for finishing touches.
“I shoot it on my iPad and edit it in iMovie. [Associate Producer, Original Content] Ashly Robinson puts in some of the graphics, b-roll and some music,” said Rowe, who learned some editing skills by attending Apple workshop classes. “I’m my own mobile studio, me, my iPad, tripod and microphone. It’s hilarious.”
Rowe tells Front Row more about “The Front Rowe” on espnW.
