-- From an inauspicious debut as a television network reaching 1.4 million homes, ESPN is a true business success story. Today, it is the leading multinational, multimedia sports entertainment company featuring the broadest portfolio of multimedia sports assets with over 50 business entities.
With a passionate fan base and the powerful nature of live and unscripted action, ESPN continues to grow. The company and its platforms – starting with flagship program SportsCenter which defines the TV sports news genre – have grown to be synonymous with sports. Offerings include an unmatched lineup of live professional, college and amateur team and individual sports; sport-specific and enterprise journalism studio shows and critically acclaimed and award-winning documentaries. An increasing focus on digital platforms – ESPN3, the WatchESPN app, ESPN Mobile, podcasts and more – while growing its core television business, helps fulfill the company’s mission to serve sports fans around the world anytime and anywhere.
