Good news continues to spread this week at ESPN. The network has locked up agreements with two more broadcasters, continuing a trend of retaining key versatile performers.
Adam Amin, who began his career with ESPN at the age of 24, has continued to impress and rise up the ranks as a play by play broadcaster. He’ll have the opportunity to increase his profile and tackle new challenges now that he’s signed a new multiyear deal with the company. Amin will continue calling marquee college and professional games year-round on both television and radio.
“Six years ago, I was humbled and grateful ESPN took a chance on a kid who was still finding a voice in the minor leagues,” said Amin. “The company gave me the opportunity to grow with and learn from passionate people in a multitude of sports. As I now continue my career at ESPN, I will try to live up to the standard set by so many quality commentators – past and present – at the network.”
The second person to gain future stability with ESPN is Matt Barrie. During his four years with the worldwide leader in sports, Barrie has anchored and covered numerous events and shows. He’ll have the chance to add to those experiences after signing a new multiyear contract extension.
Under the terms of his agreement, Barrie will remain involved as an anchor of weekend morning editions of ESPN’s signature news and information program, SportsCenter. That’s likely to include contributing to the network’s SportsCenter on the Road telecasts, a program he’s been actively involved in, especially on Saturday mornings during college football season, and from other big events.
