Jen Lada was the latest ESPNer to make her Around the Horn debut.

Lada, a host and reporter for ESPN’s college football coverage, whether it be College GameDay or College Football Live, lended her expertise to the Worldwide Leader’s daily roundtable discussion show on Wednesday. And Lada came away victorious after her first appearance on ATH.

That’s some winning percentage.

In addition to reporting for ESPN’s college football coverage, Lada also hosts the Jen, Gabe, and Chewy show for ESPN Radio in Milwaukee. The show has become a fixture on Milwaukee Sports Radio and airs Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. ET.

Beyond college football and the radio, Lada is also a recognized contributor to ESPN’s in-depth storytelling shows, such as SC Featured, Outside the Lines, and E:60.

Since joining the network in 2015, Lada has donned many hats. She’s filled in as a guest host on various radio and television shows like Baseball Tonight, First Take and SportsCenter. She’s also created content for ESPN’s digital platforms and contributed to the SportsCenter team, as well as Mike and Mike.

While she’s spent nearly a decade at the Worldwide Leader, Lada had a successful career in The Windy City prior to that. She spent two and a half years honing her skills as an anchor and reporter in the Chicago area for Comcast SportsNet. At CSN Chicago, she covered the Chicago Bears and White Sox while displaying her versatility by anchoring SportsNet Central, hosting High School Lights, White Sox pre- and postgame shows, and even a trivia show called Beer Money.

With Wednesday’s win on Around the Horn, there seem to be plenty more opportunities to come.
