Hannah Storm Interviews Sports Newsmakers in "Face to Face" Special Thursday

Guests Include DeMarco Murray, Adam Jones, Missy Franklin, Pat Haden, Michele Roberts, Karl-Anthony Towns, Mo'ne Davis

Award-winning ESPN host and SportsCenter anchor Hannah Storm sits down with a diverse list of seven sports newsmakers whose stories and legacies are still evolving for Face to Face with Hannah Storm, a SportsCenter special debuting Thursday, Aug. 6, at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.

The guests represent all levels of athletic achievement, from amateur to collegiate sports and the Olympic Games to the professional spotlight of the NFL, NBA and MLB.

The program is the latest in the series of Face to Face specials and the first to feature newsmakers from multiple sports. The series blends access and in-depth, one-on-one conversations to create compelling and insightful features that show viewers a new side of each guest.

"In each special we look to bring something new to viewers, whether that's insight into a sports figure they think they already know or introducing a new face that is about to break through," said Storm. "This special is no different as we talk to a diverse lineup of intriguing newsmakers across the sports landscape who have made a meaningful impact on their sport or society and those who are still making their imprint. These people will continue to be big stories in sports in the years ahead."

Guests include:

· Running back DeMarco Murray, heading to his first season with the Philadelphia Eagles, who discusses events that led him away from the Dallas Cowboys.

· Olympic medalist and world-record-holder swimmer Missy Franklin, who recently turned pro after passing up millions of dollars to attend college, touches on her place in the endorsement world with the Summer Olympics on the horizon.

· Trailblazing National Basketball Players Association executive director Michele Roberts, the first woman to head a sports union in the United States, gives insights into who she is.

· University of Southern California athletic director Pat Haden speaks candidly and emotionally of the things that matter to him the most, including his family.

· Mo'ne Davis, the 2014 Little League World Series sensation, on what her life in the past year has been like and her interest in history and civil rights as she prepares to enter high school.

· Baltimore Orioles centerfielder Adam Jones discusses the civil unrest that took over Baltimore earlier this year and speaks about what he's doing to give younger generations an opportunity towards success

· NBA rookie Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves, welcomes viewers into his family's New Jersey home and discusses going from perennial college hoops powerhouse Kentucky to the NBA.

The program is hosted from the National Academy in New York City, a museum and school that for nearly two centuries has been one of the most vibrant centers of fine art in the country. Also featured will be the work of award-winning and honored portrait artist Yuka Imata, an instructor at the academy, whose paintings and artwork have been exhibited across the United States as well as internationally.

Storm created the Face to Face series in January, 2012, with the debut show featuring Tim Tebow. Past editions have focused on the NFL, NBA and NASCAR, and have included high-profile personalities such as Clay Matthews, J.J. Watt, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Arian Foster, Dwyane Wade, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Aaron Rodgers, Carmelo Anthony, Jimmie Johnson, NBA commissioner Adam Silver and Russell Wilson, among many others.
