Penn Staters Craft Big, Productive Presence at ESPN

Penn Staters at ESPN


Dozens of Penn State alumni work at ESPN in a variety of positions, with some joining the company recently and others there nearly two decades. Their work shapes how millions of sports fans get their information every day, and they all appreciate that challenge -- as well as how the University prepared them to succeed in their respective roles.

“ESPN is a lot like Penn State, actually. You have a lot of driven, talented people,” said Alyssa Manware, a 2012 graduate who fits the stereotype after earning two degrees (journalism and English) at Penn State. She works in commercial operations, part of a team that shapes how and when commercials appear during broadcasts.
