During the 2009 and 2010 baseball seasons, I worked on the YurView (formerly Cox Sports New England) program, “Talkin’ PawSox,” as a co-host and producer. The news magazine show featured the ins and outs of the Red Sox farm system. I reported and produced packages on the Pawtucket Red Sox, Portland Seadogs and the Lowell Spinners. Relevant interviews included members of the PawSox front office, PawSox clubhouse manager, grounds crew, McCoy stadium staff, players Josh Reddick, Lars Anderson, Robert Manual and Ryan Kalish, managers Torey Lovullo, Arnie Beyeler and Bruce Crabbe, and pitching coach Rich Sauveur.
Some of my favorite segments that I produced for the program were the PawSox Superlatives, Fight for Air McCoy Stadium Stair Climb and the PawSox Youth Clinic.
I also hosted and coordinated an interview with documentary filmmaker, Ken Burns. I worked with Ken Burns’ publicist to plan the interview outside of Fenway Park, and interviewed Ken Burns regarding his ties to baseball, the Red Sox, and his latest addition to the PBS documentary series, “Baseball.” The half-hour special aired on Cox Sports New England as original programming.
In addition to covering the Red Sox farm system, I beat out over 22,000 national applicants to become a Top-50, then Top-30 Finalist in the 2012 MLB Fan Cave contest.
Beyond baseball, I had the opportunity to produce football content as a writer and host of the humorous web series, Football Nation’s Four Downs.
