Our team has set the tone for covering teams in the Los Angeles area and would like to continue working with the next generation of sports producers.

  • ESPN Los Angeles
  • Spectrum Sportsnet – Official Broadcast Partner of the Lakers
  • SportsnetLA – Official Broadcast Partner of the Dodgers

The main reason for our alumni’s success is the 360 degrees of digital experience they have here on our team. The owner, Gary Lee, has been working in the media industry for well over a decade at the top sports companies in the world, so he can best position the team with leading-edge strategy and best practices to date.

There are few opportunities to write about Los Angeles, National and Global Sports with such a sizable platform such as Dodgers Nation and Sports Illustrated while getting the training to be ready for the next evolution in sports coverage.
