ESPN's Bristol Campus Through The Years
When ESPN went on the air in September 1979, there was no running water for the couple of dozen employees at the Bristol headquarters, and they used port-a-johns and worked long hours fueled only by vendor carts at the construction site. That first 20,000-square-foot building still stands, but it has been expanded several times. The structure is now just one of 18 on a campus that has grown to 123 acres and nearly a million square feet.
