Introducing Snapchat Discover & ESPN

Yesterday, Snapchat launched their new short-form, fun media product Discover: "Snapchat Discover is a new way to explore Stories from different editorial teams. It’s the result of collaboration with world-class leaders in media to build a storytelling format that puts the narrative first. This is not social media." I am excited to say that ESPN is part of that launch - among ten other great launch partners. We of course represent your sports news and content. You'll find unique, daily sports clips, articles, photos and takes. It is fun and compelling - and most importantly, it fits really nicely within Snapchat's environment and interface. I think you'll have fun playing with it.

Also: our team is growing. So whether you are interested in creating the great social content or helping to build experiences like these - please contact me. There are many great positions.
