Maria Taylor is the co-host of ESPN's College Gameday and sideline reporter for ABC's Saturday Night Football. She's just signed a new deal that will keep her on ESPN’s networks for years to come. 
We discuss: 
  • Why her first experience as a college football sideline reporter felt like "trial by fire" 
  • Social media trolls and criticisms as a female reporter 
  • Fitting in as a person of color in the industry
  • Mentoring and how men can support women at work as a colleague, mentor or manager
  • Self-care routines  for someone with a busy schedule
The host, analyst and reporter, who has become a prominent voice in the network’s college sports coverage, will continue her roles on a number of franchise programming including ABC Saturday Night Football, Saturday Primetime (men’s college basketball) and studio host for Big Monday, Thursday Showcase (women’s college basketball) and the NCAA Women’s Final Four. 
Maria is also the co-founder of The Winning Edge Leadership Academy, a non-profit organization devoted to developing the professional potential of young women and minorities in sports business.
