    Appreciated, Not Tolerated (featuring India G. Timpton)

    Appreciated, Not Tolerated (featuring India G. Timpton)

    On this week's episode Marley had the pleasure of interviewing India G. Timpton who is a former collegiate athlete that now works as a Productions Assistant at ESPN. She shares her journey of transition from being the star on the court to being a star behind the scenes at ESPN.  You can also watch her interview on YouTube (air date 11/17/20 @6pm EST):

    https://youtu.be/64KAAVWOe7o

    Check out her bio below: 

    Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, India G. Timpton fell in love with sports at an early age. Looking back, she found success in many sports, but Timpton found herself lacing up her basketball shoes from age eight through college.   Timpton continued her athletic career on a full ride at The University North Carolina at Greensboro.   Graduating with a Communication Studies degree in 2017, Timpton knew, although done on the court, her love for sports wasn't ready to hear the final buzzer. 

    So off to Syracuse University, on a partial academic scholarship, she went!   While there, Timpton spent just over a year interning with Cuse's Athletic Program and her winter break with ESPN Radio in California. She also had the opportunity to work on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, for six weeks, where she covered politics. All of those experiences helped her to earn a master's degree in Broadcast and Digital Journalism with a Sports Emphasis Certification in 2018.  

    Following a six-month position with the Women's Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) in Georgia, which concluded with her attending and working the Women's Final Four in Florida, Timpton took a job that brought her home! Now back in the 704, she recently celebrated one year with ESPN as a Production Assistant. So far, Timpton has created television content for collegiate Field Hockey, Soccer, and Basketball airing on the ACC Network, SEC Network, and other ESPN platforms.   Timpton's career aspiration is to be a television Sport's Analyst, and as she continues to make that dream a reality, she loves to share how sports have contributed significantly to her successes while helping to shape her future.
