Athens, GA (Nov 27, 2007) - I keep getting Google referrals to this site from people looking for information on Holly Rowe. Lest I disappoint them any more, here is her profile as posted by the ESPN networks.

Holly Rowe joined ESPN on a regular basis in August 1998 as a college football sideline reporter. She previously had served a sideline reporter for select ESPN telecasts in 1997 and for ABC Sports from 1995-96.

Rowe has also provided play-by-play of women’s college basketball and women’s college volleyball for ESPN since 1998 and for Fox Sports since 1993. She also called play-by-play on ESPN’s coverage of the 1998 Women’s World Cup. In addition, Rowe has hosted ESPN’s coverage of the Running of the Bulls, swimming and track and field. She also serves as the analyst for the WNBA’s Utah Starzz. Rowe continues to work for the Blue & White Sports Network in Provo, Utah, which syndicates WAC sporting events, where she has served as the play-by-play voice on BYU women sports since 1993.

As a University of Utah undergraduate – from where she earned a broadcast journalism degree in 1991 – Rowe was a sportswriter for the Daily Utah Chronicle and the Davis County Clipper, and anchored the campus TV station news. Following college, she interned at CBS Sports under then-VP of Programming Len DeLuca (now ESPN’s Senior VP, Programming Development) in 1991-92. She’s been on the CBS production team for every men’s Final Four since 1991.

Rowe was a Utah state delegate to the National Republican Convention in 1988. Currently, she’s also writing a mystery novel and screenplay.
