I am a guest on this week's "Press Row With Jordan Breen". Breen, the Administrative Editor of Sherdog.com, brought me on to talk about the state of MMA coverage and where it's headed. Here's the breakdown of the show:
Breen and Thomas discuss the current media climate in mixed martial arts, how major online entities are covering the sport, and the costs and benefits of big-money coverage of MMA. The two get in-depth on the changing and consolidating landsape of MMA journalism and what kinds of specialized coverage the still-developing sport is sorely lacking compared to its stick-and-ball brethren.
Also on tap: how technology is changing traditional media roles, the ideal goals of MMA coverage and the proliferation of video, and what it means to the sport.
Also, I realize it's a complete hack move to put your own name in the headline of a post you write, but I'm riding solo over here. Forgive me.
