About 2 1/2 years ago, she moved over to the Sports Marketing team, managing all the marketing efforts around driving tune-in of the NBA on ESPN/ABC. While on this business, she led one of the early grass roots initiatives at ESPN, the NBA on ESPN RV Tour, an RV travelling cross country interacting with fans and driving excitement of the NBA. She also managed one of the first joint marketing efforts between the NBA, TNT and ESPN to promote the Postseason. About 7 months ago, Allison moved over to work on ESPN’s digital business, which includes all Fantasy Sports, ESPN Insider and the overall brand health of ESPN.com.
