Omar Raja

Digital and Social Content Commentator, ESPN

Omar Raja rose to fame after having founded House of Highlights, an Instagram account that he turned into a go-to platform for sports highlights and commentary with more than 15 million predominantly Gen Z and millennial followers. House of Highlights was purchased by Bleacher Report in 2015, approximately one year after it was started by Raja in his dorm room. Earlier this year Raja joined ESPN to further strengthen its digital and social presence. He will discuss the power of Instagram and other social platforms, and the need to pivot on content during a period where there are no live sports.
