Mission Possible ESPN’s Next Gen group is a voluntary group of young-minded employees, focused on bringing relevant, new media ideas to the company. Our goal is to help production leaders enhance their broadcasts to include digital, interactive, and customizable sports experiences. We will work to explore, develop, and acquire new technologies that engage younger fans, thus improving visibility of the ESPN brand and products in the global marketplace. This will make us more relevant to affiliates and advertisers and ultimately increase ESPN’s growth and profitability.
The Objective At Large Collaboration between internal production teams and youth markets Explore new technology and how 20somethings are interacting with it Continue to elevate brand recognition through distribution in new platforms Remain on the cutting edge: curbing costs while engaging and informing a new generation of sports fans
