Over the past three years, I've been fortunate enough to be a 'call in case of emergency' writer for ESPN and the The Vault.
The assignments usually (but not always) start off something along the lines of: “Skip! We have 15 seconds of mandatories for a 10 second non-union broadcast spot that has no budget and has to pass client and legal for two companies. We need options by 8:00 EST tomorrow. Go.”
I love getting those calls.
Challenges are what this gig is all about.
