Ian Thomas of Front Office Sports

"There’s excitement around things that are being done to reach fans differently. A lot of trends are now being fast-forwarded…also concern and trepidation around the traditional sports business model.”

On this episode of Fired Up, Ian, editor of Front Office Sports, a digital publication, provides a view into the many facets of the business of sports with an eye to the future and how leagues and teams are responding – now more rapidly because of such a disruption – to our shifting cultural tide.

During his career, Ian has covered a variety of topics, but currently focuses on the business of the sports industry ranging from leagues and teams to media and technology companies.

His stories have appeared across several outlets and mediums including Bloomberg Businessweek and Bloomberg.com, The Financial Times and FT.com, The Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, the SportsBusiness Journal and SportsBusiness Daily, The Washington Post, The New York Observer, Crain's New York Business, Yahoo! Finance and other outlets. His reporting has been cited on/by ESPN's The Athletic, Sports Illustrated, Yahoo! Sports, and numerous other outlets.
