Media access to athletes is an age-old discussion but one that is timely yet again…join us for another emergency pod! John, Matt, and Jen discuss how today’s media landscape is evolving and affecting athletes, journalists, and even PR professionals. Though this is not a new conversation, many athletes and most recently, Tennis Pro Naomi Osaka, are questioning traditional media availability that athletes are accustomed to providing. The Maroon PR team discusses this layered issue that goes beyond sitting at the podium. What are the expectations for athletes today and how does social media play a role? Are athletes being advised personally when it comes to media? It’s a topic we feel passionately about, so join us for the discussion!
