“Find out where you might be of help, and educate others…Shine The Light” ~ Claire Smith
In this pilot episode of Claire Smith: Shine The Light, host Marc Zumoff sits down with the Co-Director of The Claire Smith Center of Sports Media, Claire Smith. Smith has spent four decades covering baseball and has become a pioneer in the sports journalism world. Together, they discuss how she discovered her love for sports journalism, her trailblazing induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame, and how she cultivated a different kind of storytelling in broadcast media that focuses on what The People NEEDED to hear, not just what they wanted to hear. Later, they talk about the Center for Sports Media and why Honesty, Integrity, and Morality are the touchstones of the center.
