This week we welcome Coley Harvey to The Driving Change Podcast. Coley is an on-air personality for FOX Sports and the Big Ten Network, working as a sideline reporter on college football and Major League Baseball broadcasts. Based in Chicago, he also hosts studio shows for both networks.
Prior to joining FOX Sports and BTN, he lived in New York, where he was a general assignment reporter for ESPN. In that role, he appeared regularly on SportsCenter and other ESPN platforms. During his six-year tenure at ESPN, he also spent parts of two seasons covering the New York Yankees as a beat reporter, and three others based in Cincinnati, covering the Cincinnati Bengals.
Harvey has also had assignments outside of the NFL, MLB and college football. In October 2017, he was ESPN’s lead reporter in Las Vegas covering the various sports connections to the shooting that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds of others.
