The theme song used by ESPN's SportsCenter was written by Annie Roboff, who is best known as a composer of country music.

"If you haven't heard of Annie Roboff, you have undoubtedly have heard her music...Even if you haven't gotten near country music, chances are that you've heard her music and didn't know it. In fact, probably the most recognizable song to most sports fans was written by Annie. She wrote the original theme to ESPN's 'SportsCenter'."

"MB: How does it feel to know that one of your songs is listened to by so many men every single day - The ESPN Sports Center Theme?

AR: Well, the thing about the ESPN sports center theme, was that it was originally music to the defunct Satellite News Channel. They went out of biz really fast and sold that music to ESPN. I love that so many guys know that theme...I never saw a penny from the everyday play, because it had been sold to the Satellite News Service as a buy out (it was the very early days of cable when no 'rules' had been established)."
