ESPN executive Kyle Brown died while covering a college baseball super regional game. Early on, Brown was sure he wanted to work for ESPN and in the sports industry.
In a 2003 article on the Ohio State website, he claimed that after accompanying a neighbor who worked as an ESPN executive, he fell in love with sports television production.
Since he was a freshman in high school, he worked for ESPN productions at many Ohio State games aired by the network.
Twenty years ago, Brown told the Ohio State website, “When Dick Vitale came to town, I was his driver for the day.”
When you watch him on TV you might think, “That guy must be drinking Red Bull by the litre”, but when he’s off the air he’s one of the nicest people and the most relaxed you can meet.
