WILL LEITCH SUPERSTAR

Posted by HG on April 17, 2007

I’ve been a fan of independent sports writing longwillleitch.jpg before I decided to become a fledgling blogger. Some of my favorite reads over the years have been www.benmaller.com , www.sportsbybrooks.com , and www.deadspin.com. Will Leitch, editor of DeadSpin, is going to be a member of Media Bistro’s “Breaking Into Sports Journalism” panel on April 24th. Just make sure you don’t call Leitch a journalist:

I proudly proclaim that I don’t work in sports journalism, because sports journalism is no fun. I prefer to just write about sports and apply journalistic practices to my work. But being a sports journalist is a very depressing label. So anyway, I started Deadspin.com, wrote every day for about two years, and then people were calling me a sports journalist. I seriously hope it’s not that easy.”

All humbleness aside, Leitch and crew at DeadSpin have changed the sports journalism landscape, not to mention the comments policy over at ESPN.com. And speaking of ESPN, there’s a number of ESPN employees on the panel with Will. Is WL keeping his enemies the WWL close or chatting with future co-workers?
