Diversity at SI

Discussion in 'Journalism topics only' started by broadway joe, Apr 30, 2007.

  1. Congrats to Jeff. One of the truly good guys around and completely under utilized (IMO) by SI. Hopefully he gets a chance to spread his wings some. I have a feeling he will. Wonder if he gets to stay in KC or has to relocate? I'd imagine he can stay there since it's centrally located.

    Anyone know his role at .com? Is he strictly football? If so, he and Michael Smith make a nice young combination.

    How many hispanics are senior writers? It is, after all, the largest non-caucasian population group in the United States.

    Nunyo business.

    (Sorry, couldn't resist - I'm sure Nunyo is sick of that joke.)
  4. damn, i didn't even think about the relocation factor. 15 weeks of cold pizza.

    Outstanding hire for ESPN perhaps, but is it a good move for Chadiha, at least journalistically? I'm sure the money is fine and dandy, but like you say, Jason, will he be used properly?

    How does ESPN not use black journalists properly?

    I noticed this as well. A very talented but very homogenized group.

    It's good to have lower-level spies at places like S.I., especially a couple of 'em who read this site. :D
    Forwarded me the old announcements...
    The word is that Carl Greenfield is also leaving, but it hasn't been announced. Don't know where. Another rumor to take to the bank is that Demasio's headed for Time magazine in a few weeks. Pretty nice way to land on your feet, but I don't get that one. What's his background with a magazine like that?
    It'll be interesting to see what Jeff's role will be at ESPN. That's a gamble I wouldn't take unless he got a stupendous deal.
    S.I. already a super white magazine is suddenly Alaska-white.

    Re: Jeff Chadiha

    As many of you now know, Jeff Chadiha is leaving Sports Illustrated. Jeff joined SI as an NFL staff writer in April 2000 and quickly established himself as a valuable addition to that talented team of writers and reporters. His sharp work on player profiles, news, game coverage and previews earned him a promotion to senior writer last year. Jeff’s versatility has been showcased across various sections of the magazine and SI.com. Equally important, he has been a good friend.

    Please join me in thanking Jeff for his seven years of great work and in wishing him all the best in the future.

    Re: Nunyo Demasio

    Please be be aware that today is Nunyo Demasio's last day at SI.

    Nunyo has been with the magazine and SI.com since October 2005. In that short time he has contributed strong reporting and sharp profiles on the NFL beat including an insightful portrait of Marvin Harrison and cover stories on Troy Polamalu and Shaun Alexander.

    Please join me in thanking Nunyo for his great work and wishing him well in the future.

    Hmmm.... Are we sure Nunyo didn't leave on his own to go to Time?

    Again, Demagio's background is sports. How would he write his own ticket to Time magazine?
    My spy says Demagio was a victim of the purge. Last hired.
    Where is Carl Greenfeld headed? I felt that the guy got way too much space and play for a decent feature writer.
    Do any ESPN posters know Jeff's role? It would be foolish to leave just for Cold Pizza, a show that my last one year. Is Jeff anchored at ESPN the magazine? Will he do radio? I would be surprised if he didn't leave for a sweet deal.
