ESPN Network FAQ


"It doesn't stand for anything, but the story is this...When ESPN
started in 1979 we were the Entertainment and Sports Programming
Network (thus, ESPN). However, the full name was dropped in February
1985 when the company adopted a new corporate name --ESPN, Inc.--and a
new logo. We are a subsidiary of ABC, Inc., which is a wholly owned
subsidiary of The Walt Disney Co. The Hearst Corporation has a 20
percent interest in ESPN."
