Editorial changes add depth to our coverage
Published September 13, 2010
We have made some changes in our editorial department and wanted to share details with you.
First, SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily welcome Fred Dreier as a reporter in our New York City office. Dreier is a graduate of the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism and worked at VeloNews from 2005 to 2009, covering stories in 13 countries on six continents. He has worked for Inside Triathlon magazine and Triathlete magazine. Dreier will cover hockey, soccer and endurance sports.
Meanwhile, several other writers are adding or switching beats. Tripp Mickle has relocated to the Charlotte office and will take over the motorsports beat from Michael Smith as well as maintain his Olympic and action sports responsibilities. Smith keeps college sports and adds golf and lacrosse, three beats we see as significant growth areas. Bill King will handle boxing and mixed martial arts and maintain his role as senior writer. He also will be our point person on sports business education programs.
We believe these changes will provide more quality and depth in our coverage. Below is a list of staff writers, their contact information and their beats:
Endurance sports, hockey, soccer
Action sports, motorsports, Olympics
Baseball, digital media
Horse racing, labor/agents
Finance, football (NFL), tennis
Boxing, mixed martial arts,
sports business education
Colleges, golf, lacrosse
Basketball, football (AFL)
