When Rob Galm toured ESPN’s headquarters as an eighth-grader in 2009, he made a bold promise.
“I told everyone on the tour that I was going to work there some day,” remembers Rob, who was 14 when he first visited the sports network’s main campus in Bristol, Conn.
He even took a photo behind SportsCenter’s anchor desk as proof.
True to his word, Rob didn’t waste any time working towards his big-picture career goal. A month after completing his degree as a communication studies major at SUNY Cortland, he landed a full-time job with the undisputed worldwide leader in sports.
“It was on the top of my list of places I wanted to get to,” says Rob, who grew up in Pine Plains, N.Y., roughly 90 minutes from his new employer. “So being able to have it work out, especially after graduating early, that was really cool.”
