“SPORTSbyBROOKS will revolutionize your life”

Much of my 16-year main media career was spent in sports radio as a talk show host, play-by-play announcer and program director. When I created the internet’s first sports blog in May, 2001, it wasn’t called a “blog” back then and I was still working full-time in radio.

For the first few years I was writing […]

Chilling Media Admission To Signal SbB’s Demise?

Eight years in, and I never once thought about the demise of this site. Or that SbB had somehow lost its scab-ripping reputation in the sports media.
