Kevin Negandhi

ESPN Sportscaster

                      

   

What were your favorite sports teams growing up?

-The Eagles, Phillies, Sixers, and the Flyers.  I’m from Philadelphia.

 

Who or what inspired you to be an ESPN sportscaster?

-I’ve always wanted to do it since I was 14 years old.  I looked up to a variety of people.  I really admired Harry Kalas, Hall of Fame Phillies broadcaster.  I loved Al Michaels and Bob Costas.  The guys at ESPN – Chris Berman, Bob Lee and others.

 

If you weren’t an ESPN sportscaster, what would you be?

-I would probably be a sportscaster somewhere else.  If I was in another field, I would probably have gone into business and owned my own business.

 

What was your favorite subject in school?

-I loved math.  I was very good at math.  My second favorite was history.

 

What does your typical day look like?

-An example.  I am doing the 1:00 a.m. Sportcenter tonight.  I come in at 6 p.m., we have a meeting with the producer/director, there are about ten of us.  We talk about ideas for the show.  About 7 p.m. I start writing.  I start to get highlights, things called shot sheets, I look at those.  I then start watching games.  I start to get ready at midnight and I’m on the air at 1 a.m.

 

If you could interview anyone in the world, who would it be?

-I would love to interview the President.  I would also love to interview the Dalai Lama.  I would love to find out what goes on in his mind.

 

What was the last thing you googled and why?

-I think it was last night for a story I was writing.  I believe it was about Roy Oswalt, the new Phillies pitcher.  I wanted to find out some information about him before we went on last night.

 

What was the strangest interview you have had so far?

-I’m not going to say his name, but I interviewed a college basketball coach.  It was for Sportscenter and it sounding like he was not interested in being interviewed.  It sounded like we just woke him up.  He was cranky on TV, live on Sportscenter.  That was probably the strangest thing because it was live TV.  It only lasted two minutes.

 

What kind of books do you like to read?

-I love reading biographies and non-fiction.  I also like inspirational books as well.  I get the most out of these.  My last book that I read was Open by Andre Agassi.  I thought this was fantastic.  He revealed a lot about himself in this book.

 

What advice do you have for an aspiring ESPN sportscaster?

-Learn to never take no for an answer, and to believe in their dreams.  Do as many things as you can.  Learn how to do interviews, be on camera, and be active in college with the TV and radio stations.  The only way to move in this business is to be involved, get to know people, and have experience.  You need to work every day in getting better.  You need to write, shoot video, and all the behind the scenes aspects.  It worked for me, so I hope it will work for other people.
