Dan Wetzel, Yahoo! Sports columnist, co-writer of ‘Life of a King’


If we’re talking about the best sports writers in the business today, Yahoo Sports’ Dan Wetzel is probably among the top-3. But did you know that he’s also a movie script-writer and that one of those movies actually got made and that the movie stars an Academy Award winner and, more importantly, Pedro Cerrano? No? Well, then, listen to this week’s podcast. During our chat, we talk about the movie he co-wrote, Life of a King; his coverage of the Jerry Sandusky and the Steubenville, Ohio rape cases; and why he thought making the move to the Internet in the early 2000s was such a good idea.

Plus, Wetzel details his time at Greektown Casino College and chats about why it’s so important for a national columnist to travel so frequently.
