Alumnus hired to be ESPN anchor

Lizzy Thomas

ESPN hired a former Chronicle Sports Editor this past summer to be an anchor for the network.

Doug Kezirian ’95 played water polo at Harvard-Westlake and Brown University before moving to Las Vegas to be a TV sports anchor and director for the local Channel 13 news. Shortly after Kezirian’s June 28 final appearance, the network announced it would end its sports coverage.

Prior to his work at KTNV-TV, Kezirian covered St. Louis and Kansas City professional sports in Missouri. From there, he went on to cover the MLB’s Chicago Cubs and the NFL’s Chicago Bears in the Quad Cities.

His new job required that Kezirian relocate from Las Vegas to Bristol, Conn.
