I have had the privilege on the Digital and Social Media Sports podcast of speaking with several pros working in and around the sports business field. Some got into sports straight out of school while others had more circuitous paths. All of their stories are informative, so check out how a handful of sports pros got their foot in the door in this incredible industry. This is part one of three!
Bryan Srabian, Director of Social Media for the San Francisco Giants Major League Baseball club
Chris Yandle, Assistant Athletic Director for Communications with Georgia Tech Athletics
James Royer, Director of Digital and Social Media for the Tampa Bay Lightning
Brian Gainor, Global Sports and Entertainment Consultant with GMR Marketing
Tim Cary, Sports writer for Wall St. Cheat Sheet, formerly CBSSports.com Social Media Editor
Chris Kosmala, Manager of CRM & Technology with Comcast-Spectacor/Fan One Marketing
Bryan Bedford, Senior Business Development Manager-Global Domain & Partner Lead, Sports & Entertainment at Cisco Systems
Jake Duhaime, Marketing Manager at Thuzio, formerly worked in social & digital media with the Detroit Red Wings
