SS PODCAST: ESPN's Ashley Brewer on a difficult 2020, trusting in God & working her dream job

THIS IS THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
WITH JASON ROMANO, FEATURING ASHLEY BREWER

Ashley Brewer is a host for ESPN’s newly reimagined “SportsNation,” as well as anchoring “SportsCenter” and contributing to other studio shows and programming.

Prior to joining ESPN in March 2020, Brewer served as a weekend anchor and host for ABC7 in Los Angeles, covering the Dodgers in the World Series, Rams in the Super Bowl, and other major sporting events, in addition to co-hosting “The Bachelor Winter Games” on ABC. She began her career as a college football sideline reporter for Cox 7 Arizona and weekend sports anchor at KGUN-9, the ABC affiliate in Tucson, Arizona.

Brewer attended the University of Southern California, where she was a member of the varsity women’s swimming team. She was a standout swimmer at Chaparral High School in her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona, and her brothers and sisters were college athletes as well.

Today on the podcast, we talk to Brewer about her new role at ESPN, how God worked through her during a personal dark time in life in 2020, covering Kobe Bryant in Los Angeles, and why she devotes time to mentoring young women in the broadcasting business.
