Meet the Media on the Racing Writer’s Podcast
The final podcast of 2019 called for more than one guest, so here’s four! Jeff Gluck (5:26) of The Athletic, Jim Utter (34:11) of Motorsport.com, Dustin Long (1:29:49) of NBC Sports, and Jenna Fryer (2:20:51) of the Associated Press are here to help me share how we, the media, cover championship weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. It’s a jam-packed weekend with three series crowning three champions and various media opportunities throughout. We discuss if Homestead feels different from other race weeks, covering Homestead versus the other 35 races, how we approach a busy weekend, splitting coverage with co-workers, staying in the media center versus chasing stories outside, if we know what we’re going to write, quickly getting content out, separating ourselves from the others, and opining on the three NASCAR champions for this year, as well as leaving Homestead for ISM Raceway in 2020. Music created by Tony Monge.
