Kevin Negandhi: The First Indian-American to Anchor ESPN's Sportscenter

Kevin Neghandi was watching a basketball game on TV when he was 15 years old. The announcers mentioned that one of the players was studying broadcasting, and that would one day be the player's career. Kevin's mind was blown. "You can do that? You can get paid for that?"

That night, as he went to bed in his home of Pheonixville PA, he made a vow: He would became the first ever Indian-American to anchor the legendary ESPN sports newscast, Sportscenter.

One day years later, in the summer of 2006, after years of grind and burnout, he got a call.

"We need an anchor for the 1am Sportscenter tonight."
