At the time of his retirement Ley was ESPN’s longest-serving commentator, having become a SportsCenter anchor on the network’s third day of operation. Ley spearheaded ESPN’s aggressive coverage of breaking news and issues, primarily as host of Outside the Lines since its inception in May 1990 and also as a host of the weekly E:60 on Sunday mornings. Throughout his ESPN career, he has been equally comfortable leaving the studio to cover a variety of events onsite as host or play-by-play announcer.
