Carrie Stevens ’12 will intern at ESPN Radio in New York City this summer. A sports enthusiast and budding journalist, Stevens will be a sales/promotions intern working in both the office and at ESPN Radio events throughout the summer.
ESPN Radio was launched in 1992 and airs weekly programming and live coverage of Major League Baseball, the National Basketball Association, the Bowl Championship Series, and National Invitation Tournament games. ESPN Radio is broadcast to hundreds of radio stations in the U.S. and Canada, and popular shows include “Mike and Mike in the Morning” and “The Herd with Colin Cowherd.”
Stevens’ work will center on the weekly prize promotions, as well as the weekend events, including prize winners’ lunches with famous athletes such as Alexi Lalas. “I’ll even get to spend some time at Yankee Stadium, Madison Square Garden, and Citi Field,” she adds.
After working last summer as a marketing and editorial intern at the Syracuse University Press, an academic publishing house, Stevens began working with the Salisbury Center for Career Services in the fall to secure her internship at ESPN Radio. “After college, my dream job is to work for ESPN or Sports Illustrated as a sports journalist, so working for ESPN Radio this summer allows me to get my foot in the door.”
Stevens is a writing and rhetoric major and minors in women’s studies and the Writing Colleagues Program. She is editor-in-chief of The Herald, a writing colleague, and a member of the William Smith basketball team. Stevens will study abroad next spring in Wales.
