NFL NETWORK reporter/analyst and former DENVER POST sportswriter ADAM SCHEFTER is joining ESPN as NFL Correspondent. Among SCHEFTER's duties, besides extensive television work and a column for ESPN.COM, will be contribution of commentary to ESPN RADIO.
"ADAM has covered the NFL for 20 years and he is widely respected for his professional approach and ability to uncover stories," said EVP, Production NORBY WILLIAMSON. "He is a tremendous addition to our roster of NFL insiders who provide year-round coverage across ESPN’s platforms."
SCHEFTER said, "The name ESPN speaks for itself. Its reputation stands alone. I watched ESPN growing up, so to be a part of the programming that every football fan watches, and really has always watched, and to be a part of such a talented group of people, it’s surreal to me. It feels like I’m a late addition to the Pro Bowl. I’m flattered, honored, humbled - and I can’t wait to get to work."
