Episode 2 – Connor Rogers, Bleacher Report

Episode 2 of Slight Work, a new podcast on sports media and working in the industry, featuring an interview with Connor Rogers, Producer at Bleacher Report

Happy to announce I am launching a new podcast tentatively called “Sight Work,” focused on working in sports media. Each episode will feature an interview with a professional currently working in the industry and we will discuss how they got to where they are, new trends in media and then wrap with the following questions each episode: 

  • Best career advice you received?
  • Most valuable skill set you have? 
  • One prediction about sports media industry in 2017 
  • Most annoying or frustrating thing about industry/your job?
  • What is one carer orientated goal you have for the next 12 months or a skill set you want to learn? 

Our second episode features Connor Rogers, Producer at Bleacher Report. We are currently in the process of submitting the podcast to I-Tunes, at which point we will share the link to subscribe. All of these episodes will not be published on TOJ going forward, just the initial ones until we get up and running on I-Tunes.

In this episode we talk about breaking into the sports media industry, terrible commutes, how to balance the pitfalls of Twitter with your job and how we see sports content changing in 2017.

Without fans we wouldn’t have this kind of work but I think sometimes people are very close minded and won’t hear out your opinion or just times they are really harsh behind a keyboard…people can hate or trash other people without even realizing what they are doing. 

We have stack the releases of our first two episodes, so make sure to check out our first episode featuring James Corbett, of Whistle Sports, right here.

Connor’s archive of work is located at this link. The podcast audio is located below to listen right here or to download.
