"The Sportswriter’s Life" is a series of interviews with writers and editors from around the world. They talk through their past, their present and their possible future in the business, and share their insights into the writing process and the world of sports journalism and media in general.
Episode 2 is a conversation with Karen Crouse of The New York Times.
Karen Crouse has been a sportswriter and reporter with NYT since 2005, covering a range of sports, most recently specialising in all things golf.
Her Twitter bio says she “covers sports from outside the box”, and that is exactly the type of thing that that Magnificent Irrelevance is keen to explore. At the beginning of 2020 Karen took up a new posting as the New York Times’s International Sports Correspondent, an assignment that has turned out to be quite a bit different than expected given the events of this year.
Karen Crouse's first book, Norwich: One Tiny Vermont Town's Secret to Happiness and Excellence, was published in 2018.
