One of the opportunities the Communications staff at ESPN afforded reporters during last week’s media workshop was the ability to shadow a production assistant.
There are dozens of production assistants working on various segments for either SportsCenter or other studio programs.
I had the opportunity to shadow David Dreyfuss. David has worked at ESPN as a P.A. for over six years. This night he was working on a segment for Baseball Tonight. Our conversation took place at approximately 9:35pm and he was working on deadline for the 10:00pm edition of the show.
