NABJ14 Mentor Breakfast Brought To you By ESPN

The Sports Task Force is all about bringing in the next young journalists that will help our industry survive and thrive. The Mentor Breakfast brings seasoned professionals together with budding journalists.

At the start of the program attendees signed up to be paired with a likeminded professional who they can call on for career advice. Honoree Stuart Scott of ESPN accepted his achievement via a recorded response with his signature wit.

ESPN’s Jay Harris blessed the crowd with tales of his journey from a county kid to news man to sports anchor. Harris stressed that attendees should “Do You, but don’t forget the people who support you.”


Harris closed his speech with a touching dedication to Stuart Scott by recording the audience doing a rousing “Boo YAH”!
