2023 Sports Media Summit: Max Mcgee

The Claire Smith Center for Sports Media at Klein College of Media and Communication hosts its Sports Media Summit every year. During the event, attendees can connect with top editors, videographers, and leaders in sports media working in Philadelphia and around the country. This year’s event featured two keynote speakers: Max McGee, KLN ‘15, ESPN SportsCenter anchor, and award-winning journalist Jemele Hill.

In this first of two parts, Professor Matt Fine moderates as Max McGee, KLN ‘15 (he/him), talks about the importance of confidence and hard work. Max McGee is a SportsCenter anchor at ESPN, and the journey to getting to this point in his career was not easy. McGee recounts his time working as a busboy at Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Que in New Jersey and filling out applications while he was working. Finally, after applying to over 255 jobs, he started his career at KPLC-TV in Lake Charles, Louisiana, in 2016.
