ESPN has picked its new lead man.
Its ombudsman, at least.
A panel from the Poynter Institute will serve as the next ombudsman for the sports side of ABC’s media conglomerate.
Seems to make as much sense as basketball upsets in March.
Who better to employ as a review and public commentary on the practices and strategies employed at the world’s largest sports journalism outlet than an institute that specializes in journalistic excellence?
Poynter’s mission statement outlines that the school is “dedicated to teaching and inspiring journalists and media leaders.”
ESPN, welcome to a better you.
