2007: Time INC Launches Their First Podcast
Through PERSEVERANCE and vision…
In late 2007, the same time the iPhone was launched, I was able to collaborate with business development at Time Inc. to convince them that this new form of communications called “podcasts” were going to be a big hit with the younger demographics. And thus GOLF.com Radio was born.
My co-host Jessica Marksbury and I would interview our own talent like Damon Hack (now of The Morning Drive), Rob Sauerhaft (ClubTest), Michael Breed and even tour players like Bo Weekley, who called in from the driving range of the 2008 Ryder Cup at Valhalla!
Jessica has gone on to great things with GOLF Magazine and this was a project that I will look back with great fondness as Sports Illustrated has since launched an entire network of podcasts.
