Jessica Mendoza Takes On Groundbreaking New Role With ESPN
Sports Illustrated’s Richard Deitsch has detailed Jessica Mendoza’s expanded role as a hybrid reporter/analyst for ESPN’s Baseball Tonight.
Mendoza will appear on the show every Monday night either as a studio analyst or as an on-site reporter.
As Deitsch reports, “it’s a pioneering role in the sense that Mendoza, who will continue working college baseball, college football and college softball, is serving as a sport-specific analyst as opposed to a host. There are not many women in sports media with a regular analyst role on men’s sports.”
