She’ll be an important asset to all that we are doing in the space and like the rest of our sports betting team, she will be busy.”
  • Kelly Stewart: “I’m very excited about my opportunity to work for ESPN. As a kid from small town Kansas, I grew up watching Kansas State teams during the Bill Snyder era and was immediately hooked on sports. Gambling has always been a part of my life, starting with wagering against friends on the outcome of events to playing cards and rolling dice. I guess you could say the move to Las Vegas after college was just a natural progression for me, and I quickly gravitated to legal sports betting. I was privileged to be mentored by some of the best in the business. I’m looking forward to sharing my expertise with ESPN viewers and sports fans everywhere.”
