Episode 50: The Golden Age with Adrian Wojnarowski
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski is the best reporter in sports journalism. You already know this. Everyone knows this. He’s also been a friend and mentor of Brian’s for nearly two decades.
Woj joins Brian this week and describes why he feels this is a golden age of sports journalism. Woj describes how the mobile phone did more to revolutionize reporting than almost anything else. He describes his reporting process, why it’s important to connect with sources when you’re not quoting them. Sometimes, it’s the 53rd time you talk to a source that yields the important piece of information. Woj also talks about how he works with his ESPN colleagues, how he stays in front of stories, and how he had to make a choice between waiting for Bill Parcels and taking out his garbage.
And, since Woj is a Bona guy, there’s the requisite 10 minutes about St. Bonaventure.
