How To Break Into Sports Media with Larry Brown

By November 23, 2015June 18th, 2018No Comments


In my second interview on How To Make It In Sports Media I talk with Larry Brown, Founder and Editor of LarryBrownSports.com, on how he broke into sports media and started his own site. Larry has been in the sports media industry for 14+ years and has gone from blindly knocking on the door of Fox Sports hoping to get an internship to running a successful sports site that’s updated multiple times a day. 

In the interview I ask Larry:

  • How he got started in the sports media industry and challenges he had to overcome?
  • What’s a typical day like for him as a creator/business owner?
  • What advice would he give to someone looking to break into the sports media industry or start their own sports website?
  • What are some behind the scenes challenges of running a sports website that people might not realize?
  • What was going to the Man Cave and interviewing Dan Patrick like?

Here’s an audio only/podcast version:
