Spotlight newsroom: ESPN
It's ESPN's turn at bat for our spotlight newsroom. Originally an abbreviation for Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, this U.S.-based global cable and satellite TV channel is owned as a joint venture between The Walt Disney Company and the Hearst Corporation. The most highly followed journalists at the network are as follows: Adam Schefter, Analyst; Bill Simmons, Editor in Chief and Columnist, Grantland; Michael Wilbon, NBA Analyst and Columnist with ESPN.com; John Clayton, Senior NFL Writer, ESPN.com; Buster Olney, Senior Baseball Writer, ESPN The Magazine; and of course, Chris Broussard, Senior Writer, ESPN The Magazine.
At this moment, their most active journo on Twitter this morning is David Hopps, their UK Editor for ESPNCricinfo.com. Their highest trending story, however, is baseball analyst and former major league pitcher Curt Schilling's cancer diagnosis. Our thoughts are with him and his colleagues.
