Shout-out to Denny Wolfe marking his 22nd anniversary with ESPN.
He's the senior managing producer of the ESPN Features group, earned a bachelor’s degree in broadcast communications in 1997.
Hired on Nov. 24, 1997, Wolfe took a job as a temporary production assistant (PA) and worked on various jobs for ESPN’s flagship show, “SportsCenter,” including nightly highlights of games.
After being promoted from temporary to full-time PA in June 1998, he earned staff positions on “Sunday NFL Countdown,” “NFL Primetime,” “Baseball Tonight,” and “NHL2Night.”
While covering hockey, Wolfe discovered his passion for telling feature stories on athletes, just as he did in the newspaper business. These opportunities led to promotions to associate producer and feature producer at the network.
In 2011, Wolfe became senior managing producer in the ESPN Features group, a position he still holds today. Since joining the network, Wolfe has won four National Sports Emmy Awards and received more than two dozen nominations. He's also been honored with the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award.
He resides in Bristol, Conn., with his wife, Janet, and their three children, Avery, Brayden, and Carter.
