Stefano Fusaro, an Emmy-award winning journalist who has previously covered the FIFA World Cup, multiple Super Bowls and NBA Finals has joined ESPN as a reporter who will contribute to SportsCenter and other ESPN platforms.
“We are thrilled to have Stefano join ESPN as a multiplatform reporter,” said Michael Shiffman, ESPN vice president, Content Strategy, SportsCenter and News. “Being bilingual in Spanish and English, Stefano will help strengthen the ways in which we serve our diverse fanbase.”
Shiffman said although Fusaro will be based in Dallas, his reporting will extend beyond the city, and will be valuable to further developing content for all of ESPN’s fans.
Fusaro has spent the last two years at NBC 6 in Fort-Lauderdale as a sports anchor where he covered the Miami Dolphins, Marlins and Heat. This week he will be covering games three and four of the San Antonio Spurs vs. the Houston Rockets on Friday and Sunday night for ESPN.
“It is very exciting to now be part of a network of which I have been a loyal viewer since the age of six,” Fusaro said. “I look forward to working alongside some of the best in the business, to help create riveting sports content for all ESPN platforms.”
Prior to working at NBC 6, Fusaro worked as a sports anchor for Univision covering some of the nation’s biggest sporting events including multiple Super Bowls, World Baseball Classics, the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2012 Miami Heat NBA championship, for which he was awarded an Emmy. He is a first generation American (his parents are from Cuba and Argentina).
Fusaro is a graduate of Florida International University and was born and raised in Miami.
