Reporter / ESPN & ABC Correspondent
Jamie Little is a regular reporter for ESPN and ABC, covering the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series as well as the NASCAR Nationwide Series. Little can also be seen covering the Winter X Games and the IZOD Indy Car series (including the largest race in the world, the Indy 500).
Little began her career with ESPN after graduating from San Diego State University with a degree in Journalism, and used her electric motivation to bring personal stories to sports fans everywhere. While growing up in Las Vegas, motorsports had always factored into Little’s life, and in fact her passion for (and knowledge of) motocross and supercross landed her on television.
In 2000 at the age of 22, Little was named the live announcer for the Supercross Series. From there, the sky was the limit and her TV career took off with ESPN.
