An ESPN employee since 1999, Durant worked her way up through affiliate sales and marketing and over to the programming side. That eventually positioned her to take the lead on all of ESPN’s college properties: SEC Network, the soon-to-launch ACC Network, Longhorn Network and ESPNU. Dawson also has a heavy role in college sports, taking the lead on college football and basketball programming, as well as NCAA championships. Overby has been instrumental in building ESPN Events into a dominant force as an owner/operator of college events, mostly holiday basketball tournaments and bowl games. Hanrahan has taken on an increasingly vital leadership role in integrated sales and marketing, working with ESPN’s biggest sponsorship and advertising partners. He’s viewed by many in the college space as filling the role of Rob Temple, who recently moved over to programming.
