UPDATE 2: And here is the entirety of the CBS press release on Feldman’s hire…
CBS today announced that veteran journalist and New York Times best-selling author Bruce Feldman has joined CBS to cover the sport of college football.
With over two decades experience covering college athletics, Feldman joins CBS after 17 years working for ESPN. In addition to writing for CBSSports.com, Feldman will report on college football across multiple CBS platforms.
Feldman’s hire comes on the heels of the recent addition of three award-winning writers to the CBSSports.com staff: Tony Barnhart, Brett McMurphy, and Jeff Goodman. Feldman joins Barnhart, McMurphy, and Senior Writer Dennis Dodd in covering college football for CBSSports.com. Feldman, Barnhart, Dodd, and McMurphy will combine with RapidReports, the innovative network of reporters covering 40 of the largest college football programs and the Eye on College Football blog to bring CBSSports.com users the most comprehensive coverage of college football available to fans.
“There aren’t too many writers covering college football with the experience and talent of Bruce Feldman and we’re thrilled to have him join the team at CBSSports.com,” said Jason Kint, Senior Vice President and General Manager, CBSSports.com. “In combination with the recent hires we have made, Bruce’s addition puts CBSSports.com in a leadership position in terms of our coverage of college sports.”
“CBS presented me a great opportunity. I’ve been very impressed with so many of the moves they’ve made and with the people I’ve met there,” said Feldman. “I’m excited to join the company and can’t wait to get started.”
Feldman co-wrote Swing Your Sword, which was published in July 2011 and reached number five on the New York Times Bestseller list. He also is the author of Meat Market: Inside the Smash-Mouth World of College Football Recruiting and Cane Mutiny: How the Miami Hurricanes Overturned the Football Establishment. His articles have been cited in several editions of The Best American Sports Writing, nominated for numerous national magazine awards and he has won first place awards in contests sponsored by the Football Writers Association of America.
Feldman lives in Los Angeles.
This is certainly huge news and we’ll have a more detailed analysis on what it all means coming later today.
