Who: Ramona Shelburne, Senior Writer at ESPN

The Story: As one of the most respected reporters and long form narrative writers in the country, equipped with a platform like ESPN provides, Shelburne shapes perspectives like very few can.

In addition to producing high-quality content, Shelburne is an inspiration for female writers as she scoops stories normally reserved for her male counterparts.  

How does she do it? Shelburne has a knack for getting people to open up.

“Ramona has this incredible ability to disarm people. NBA teams literally spend millions of dollars building walls to keep their personnel away from the media — and she’s able to break those down.” – ESPN colleague Brian Windhorst
