Michael Schottey, Bleacher Report


The impetus for this podcast was the recent decision by my former CBSSports.com colleague Mike Freeman to take a job with Bleacher Report, and Michael Schottey was the guy who could explain that move and where the website is going. In our chat, we talk about whether the perception of B/R simply being a free content mill will ever change, whether website aggregators and content-providers can have a symbiotic relationship, and why his site doesn’t want its writers breaking news. Plus, we discuss his original goal of becoming a Lutheran pastor and why Schottey feels like God is OK with his ultimate decision to write about sports.

Here’s some of what we talked about (and some we didn’t).
