Ivan Maisel Wikipedia
Ivan Maisel is a senior writer for ESPN, covering college football. He has been at ESPN since 2002, but had occasional appearances on the network before then.
Maisel was born to a Jewish family in Mobile, Alabama, the son of Freida Gutlow Maisel and real estate developer, Herman Maisel. He has one brother, Elliot Maisel, and one sister, Kathy Bronstein.
An alumnus of Stanford University, Maisel was a college football columnist for the Dallas Morning News from 1987 to 1994, then moved to Newsday from 1994 to 1997. He then joined Sports Illustrated from 1997 to 2002. He has been on the national college football beat for 23 years—the longest unbroken run of any writer in the country.
Ivan Maisel has often joked about his odd background, being a Jewish Alabaman. He hosts a regular podcast (daily during the football season and less frequently during the off-season). His regular guests include Gene Wojciechowski and a series of conference-specific bloggers. Maisel also regularly podcasted with ESPN analyst Beano Cook until Cook's death in October 2012.
Maisel's son, Max, went missing and was last seen on Sunday, February 22, 2015 leaving his apartment complex in Rochester, NY. On Friday, April 18, 2015 a body matching Max Maisel's description was found in Lake Ontario. On April 21, 2015 Max's body was positively identified. Max was a junior professional photographic illustration student at RIT.
