Bryan Fischer joins Pac-12 Digital as Senior Correspondent
Fischer brings a variety of media experience to Pac-12 Digital and will contribute immediately to Pac-12.com beginning at Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Media Day Thursday.
Fischer will contribute regularly to The Pac-12 Post blog, provide up-to-the minute insight on all things Pac-12 to 26,000 followers via his Twitter handle @BryanDFischer, and be a force behind our own @pac12 Twitter account and Facebook page. If you're reading this you're probably among them, thanks to a tweet you saw from him. Times are a-changing, and we're excited to have a "digital native" of Bryan's experience, and intelligence, to help lead the way.
A graduate of USC’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism, Fischer most recently served as the national college football and recruiting writer for CBSSports.com, where he contributed stories from a national perspective on college football. For us he'll expand his beat to all sports.
Prior to CBSSports.com, Fischer was a writer and producer for Yahoo! Sports’ Rivals.com, covering the USC athletics beat. There he produced feature stories, video highlights and analysis on the Trojans’ football and men’s basketball programs. Additionally, Fischer helped research and co-author several pieces for Yahoo! Sports’ award-winning investigative team.
Fischer began his career as General Manager of Trojan Vision, USC’s cable television station from 2007-2008. Following USC, he spent a year as the sports director for KSCR 1560 AM in Los Angeles, hosting a weekly sports talk radio show as well as providing play-by-play and color analysis for KSCR’s broadcasts. We see him as a five-tool player who'll anchor the heart of the order in our converged world of text, video and social media. Pac-12 Digital encompasses our digital network, mobile, university websites, social media and innovative digital initiatives across the company.
Bryan, anything you'd like to say by way of introduction?
