Samantha Steele Thought a Job at ESPN Zone in Times Square Would Help Her Get a Job at ESPN ... and it Actually Worked

Samantha Steele, the new Erin Andrews, who also happens to be dating an NFL QB, was profiled by the Sun-Sentinel, and told of the story how she got to ESPN. At 18, she moved to New York:

“So I went to the ESPN Zone in Times Square and applied to be a hostess,” she said. “This was my thought process, this is how naïve I was. I thought there would be ESPN people coming in there because it’s the ESPN Zone.”

… Just two months into seating customers in midtown Manhattan, she met someone with ABC Sports Radio. Her admittedly half-baked idea actually worked and soon Steele was an intern at the network. That led to a researcher-assistant job with ABC-TV on the college football studio show.
