Neil Everett, who joined ESPN in July 2000 as an anchor for ESPNEWS and SportsCenter, moved to the company’s new Los Angeles Production Facility in March 2009 to co-host the 1 a.m. ET edition of SportsCenter with Stan Verrett.
Everett came to ESPN after working for 15 years for various affiliates in Honolulu, most recently KGMB-TV, the CBS affiliate where he was the sports director and weekday anchor. During those 15 years, he progressed from editorial and production roles behind the scenes to being in front of the camera. He held the roles of assignment editor and associate producer before getting a shot as a sports anchor one weekend when the two regular sports anchors were unavailable.
Prior to his TV news career, Everett served as an assistant athletic director and sports information director at Hawaii Pacific University. He also was the communications director for the Jeep Aloha and Jeep Oahu bowls.
A native of Spokane, Wa., Everett is a graduate of the University of Oregon where he earned a bachelor of science degree in journalism.
