ESPN signed Rutledge to a multi-year extension last July. She hosts Saturday mornings on the SEC Network for the pregame show “SEC Nation,” as well as appear on other shows within ESPN.
“Laura is the ultimate utility player,” SEC Network senior coordinating producer Tom McCollum said in a press release upon signing Rutledge to an extension. “Turn on your television on Saturday mornings during the fall, Friday nights during the winter or throughout spring weekends in May and June, and, more often than not, you will see Laura. She gives everything she has to her colleagues and her craft, and we’re better for it. She truly connects with the subjects whose stories she shares, and it’s something we’ll benefit from for years to come.”
