About ESPN: ESPN (originally an initialism for Entertainment and Sports Programming Network) is an American multinational basic cable sports channel owned by ESPN Inc., owned jointly by The Walt Disney Company (80%) and Hearst Communications (20%). The company was founded in 1979 by Bill Rasmussen along with his son Scott Rasmussen and Ed Egan. ESPN broadcasts primarily from studio facilities located in Bristol, Connecticut.
How did ESPN start?: Bill Rasmussen conceived the concept of ESPN in late May 1978, after he was fired from his job with the World Hockey Association's New England Whalers. One of the first steps in Bill and his son Scott's (who had also been let go by the Whalers) process was finding land to build the channel's broadcasting facilities.
How many countries is ESPN in?: 61, ESPN International is a division of ESPN, Inc., which has grown to include ownership — in whole or in part — of 27 television networks outside of the United States, as well as a variety of additional businesses that allow ESPN to reach sports fans in over 61 countries and territories across all seven continents.
