Video Interview With Bill Rasmussen: Founder of ESPN!

The Princeton Sports Symposium is one of those sports industry events that you just don’t want to miss out on. For those of you who did, its my goal to give you the best highlights from the event.

Although I was not able to cover everything, I did get a number of video interviews with some of the most prominent names in sports, along with some up and coming sports executives and companies.

Check out this video interview with Bill Rasmussen, a man who needs no introduction for the global beast of a brand he created with ESPN!  He breaks down how he got involved with ESPN and where his big break came from getting into the sports industry.

Bill Rasmussen is truly the George Washington of ESPN.  His accomplishments, however, transcend the boundaries of the sports arena into areas beyond our wildest dreams.”  Chris Berman, 1993

Even though Bill is arguably considered the “President” of the sports, you would not think twice about this due to his genuine soul and humble heart.  It was a pleasure speaking with him, and I urge you to take a look at his latest company, College Fanz, and become involved with what may be the next best thing since ESPN.

I will be featuring other great video interviews from the Princeton Sports Symposium, plus interviews with pro bloggers from NYC who offer amazing advice on how to take your company or personal brand online, and make it famous.

Watch out!

What are your thoughts on the comments Bill made in this interview?  Do you agree or disagree with him on the future of the sports industry?  Do you have a story that tops his?  If so, I’d love to hear it.

    Bill Rasmussen is the ultimate game-changer. No one was doing 24 hr. anything, much less sports. He's responsible for creating more jobs than you can imagine. You can't say enough about the man. Great job, Lewis! (Love the new intro and close music, too.)
