UNC alum John Skipper, the Captain of ESPN

The simplest — and perhaps the sanest — way for John Skipper to handle being given the keys to ESPN Inc. was to shift the world's largest sports media company into cruise control. After all, Skipper held the steering wheel that drives eight U.S. television networks, five high-definition services, a 3D TV network, 48 international networks, 13 international editions of SportsCenter, 18 websites, 750 radio affiliates and the largest mobile sports operation in the world.
