Good Sports: MOVING UP IN SPORTS BROADCASTING

On Sept. 2, Kevin Negandhi makes his debut as the anchor on ESPN College Football on ABC. It’s a big promotion for Negandhi, who’s a familiar face to ESPN viewers, having anchored morning editions of SportsCenter for years. The Philadelphia native will continue to anchor SportsCenter on Friday and Sunday mornings during the football season, allowing him to share his enthusiasm for college and pro football.

“I’m beyond excited,” Negandhi told Philly.com. “Man, I am so lucky to do, what I do because I’m so passionate about these sports.”

As ABC’s college football anchor, the 40-year-old Negandhi is taking on a role once filled by broadcast legend John Saunders, who died last year. Negandhi first met Saunders when he was an aspiring journalist at Temple University in Philadelphia and later got to know Saunders’ wife Wanda and daughters Aleah and Jenna.

“I want to make Wanda and the girls proud,” Negandhi said.
