October 2016 - Wining Wife®

Fenn does a majestic job of showing these two phenomenal athletes and telling their stories.
Lisa Fenn produced human-interest features for ESPN for over a decade, but one particular story came into her life and never left. After seeing a newspaper image of two young wrestlers from one of Cleveland's tougher public high schools, Lisa followed a hunch and flew back to her hometown to meet the boys that very day. What she found caused her spirit both to sink and to soar. The three formed a surprising and meaningful connection-and once the television story ended, Lisa realized she couldn't just walk away. Though Leroy's and Dartanyon's futures were limited by abject poverty, Lisa resolved to give them the chance she knew they deserved. She worked tirelessly to see them through school and athletic pursuits, broken hearts, phantom limbs, and the bewildering obstacles that, at every turn, tested their individual strengths even while strengthening the bonds between them. About Lisa Fenn A three-time winner of the Edward R. Murrow Award and a six-time Emmy Award-winning feature producer with ESPN for thirteen years, LISA FENN interviewed every big name in sports. Today she is a sought-after public presenter, speaking on leadership, poverty, and trans-racial adoption, in addition to her Christian faith and its relevance in both her media career and her daily life. Lisa received her BA in communications from Cornell University. Her work has been featured on ESPN,Good Morning America, and World News Tonight. She continues to produce sports stories and write about the redemptive power of love. Lisa resides in Boston with her husband and two young children. Connect with Lisa on Facebook.

ESPN aired a remarkable story of two young men forever changed by the care and continued interest of former ESPN producer, Lisa Fenn.
Screen Shot 2013-07-08 at 12.06.25 AM (watch video here courtesy of ESPN and ESPN.com) This is just another example of how organizations like U.S. Paralympics provide opportunities that change lives. And how the care of people like Lisa Fenn can change a destiny. "I did it, Lisa."

The Good News Today - Go Conference 2017

But Lisa had no idea she was about to step from the comfortable shadows of obscurity in her work as a producer and onto the stage of the teens' lives and into the spotlight as their - as Dartanyon would later write on more than one application requiring an emergency contact - "Guardian Angel."
GoConf2 Award-winning ESPN sports producer and "Guardian Angel" Lisa Fenn Fast forward to Feb. 18, 2017, almost eight years to the day Lisa first got her father's early-morning call. Lisa was again in the spotlight, this time telling those attending Vision New England's two-day Go! Conference at the DCU Center how a "severely introverted anonymous television producer" had come to a position such as this. She shared how God interwove Dartanyon's and Leroy's story with hers beyond her role as journalist to minister of His love, grace and mercy to them and help them overcome. "I laid awake many a night wondering if we were in over our heads," said Lisa, who herself had prayed for God to show her where He was working and how He could use her there. The crowd rose in a standing ovation to Lisa before Ruth Graham, another speaker, came to the stage to pray.
