When we left Sarina at the end of the last episode she had just wrapped up her year as a Nike Field Reporter. But she didn't just land at ESPN when her time with Nike was over. In this episode she takes us from her time as an executive assistant for an investment banking company to TruTV, National Geographic, and finally ESPN. While she was at Nat Geo, Sarina helped grow the social media presence from 300,000 followers to more than 3-million.
Sarina Morales of ESPN takes us from her time playing sports against the guys in the Bronx to the halls at Bristol. After lying to her friends and family about having a job when she left for London, Sarina eventually got a job at the company she said she was working for. After her visa expired across the pond, she came back to NYC for a short time before landing a job as a Nike Field Reporter. She'd go on to work at TruTV and National Geographic, before ESPN. But it wasn't always easy for Sarina. In Part 1 we talk about the struggle to break into the broadcasting industry. Part 2 will be out next week.
