Bleacher Report’s first “Office Hours” a success
About 25 Bleacher Report writers and writing interns fought through unseasonable rain and brutal traffic last night to make their way to our luxurious new digs in San Francisco for the first-ever Writer HQ “Office Hours.”
It was great to meet some of the people who make B/R go, to have them meet each other and to talk about what it is we’re all doing.
We woke up to some great emails this morning from some of the writers who were there, several of whom reported that they came away feeling better about Bleacher Report than when they arrived.
VP of content David Finocchio, who is one of the site’s founders, answered some questions and offered some thoughts about what Bleacher Report is trying to accomplish and where we see ourselves in the media landscape. One writer said in an email, “It was refreshing to hear B/R is really built for the passionate, knowledgeable and driven fan—that being a unique perspective to present.”
There’s talk in the office this morning about having Office Hours in other cities so we can meet with more of Bleacher Report’s writing team. I’ve suggested Rio de Janeiro for the next one, but New York is a lot more likely.
