SB Nation has continued their trend of impressive hires, bringing aboard David J. Roth. Roth's well-known for his work with The Wall Street Journal, The Classical, The Awl, VICE, Sports On Earth and more, so he'll add another big name to the cast of those SB Nation already has.

An SB Nation source told Awful Announcing Friday morning Roth will be working for them as a full-time staff writer as of this coming Monday.

"As a staff writer Roth will be writing a variety of pieces both long and short, and will also be appearing in studio from time to time," the source said.

Thus, this move could bolster SB Nation's burgeoning video content and their longform section as well as the main site. It's an ambitious hire from SBN, and it will be interesting to see how Roth fits in with the outlet.
