LeBron James, Cleveland Browns and local media with @FSOhioZJackson

WFNY Podcast Logo

WFNY Podcast LogoI talked to Zac Jackson at Browns training camp today about coming on the podcast and eight hours later he was on it. I’m a fan of Zac’s work and was glad he was willing to come on.

We discussed the following…

  • LeBron James coming home and that impact on media
  • Fantasy football
  • Twitter block parties
  • Whether Zac ever reads the comments
  • Zac’s hybrid role of reporter and columnist for FSO
  • Local media strategies for covering LeBron James
  • The vast disparities between athlete culture and fan culture
  • Twitter death threats
  • much much more

I’m sure I’m forgetting a lot of things, but it was a great conversation and Zac was on for over 30 minutes.

    I hope you are planning on writing an article about your (pending) departure from fantasy.

    I quit for 5 years or so, but got sucked back in because of a live draft with friends.

    it’s shows growth to move beyond fantasy sports and it’s nothing but healthy to embrace the self-actualization level of sport fandom — reality football.
