Featured journalist: Sam McPherson
Today's featured journalist is Sam McPherson, a San Francisco-based freelance writer who focuses on sports. McPherson writes The Daily McPlay for Bay Area Sports on AXS, but he's also covered MLB baseball, NFL football, NCAA basketball, NCAA football, PGA golf and fantasy baseball for CBS News in the last four years, too. Despite moonlighting as a copy editor, a college English professor and an Ironman triathlete/coach, McPherson plans on becoming a sports historian soon. In fact, when asked why he became a journalist, he answers, "I like to write, and I cannot write fiction. Plus, I am a natural historian, so it's easy to glide right into journalism."
