ESPN anchor Jay Harris conducted an email interview with ProSportsExtra.com earlier this week, and today the interview goes viral! Jay Harris began his career with ESPN in 2003 primarily working with ESPNEWS in the onset of his ESPN tenure. In 2006 Harris was promoted to co-anchor on the 6 PM SportCenter show with Brian Kenny. Brian Kenny will be interviewing with us later in the week. Jay Harris continued as the co-host for the 6 PM SportsCenter until late December where he now covers the 11 PM segment of SportsCenter. The dynamic duo that once was Brian Kenny and Jay Harris interview’s begins today with Jay Harris who is one of ESPN’s best. It was a privilege and honor that he did this with us. On behalf of all of PSE we thank you so much, Jay!

What was the most memorable moment for you at ESPN? (Zach Libby Staff Writer)

How is it on the set and when did you know you wanted to work for ESPN? (Jorge Munoz Facebook Fan Winner)

Do you have any tips for aspiring sports journalists? (Ted Carbone Staff Writer)

“Write, write, write….and write some more. And ask good, open ended interview questions.”

What is your favorite sport to cover? (Brian Kenny Gallagher Staff Writer)

“I love them all.  NBA, Golf, NFL are near the top.”

What was your favorite sports team growing up? (Conor Frederick Staff Writer)
