Fantasy Judgment in the media.
It has been an exciting couple weeks for Fantasy Judgment. First, I was granted membership into the Fantasy Sports Writers Association (www.fswa.org). Thanks to FSWA President Mike Beacon for considering my body of work and giving me an opportunity to join the association. Then, months after I was interviewed in the Metro US newspaper by Adam Levitan about the launch of Fantasy Judgment (www.fantasyjudgment.com), I contacted Adam again to see if he had heard about the story regarding the Fidelity employees fired for playing fantasy football. On January 5, 2010, Adam interviewed me again about this particular case. I had sent him a copy of my Fantasy Judgment opinion on this issue, and he quoted me several times in the article. The article was then published in the January 29, 2010 edition of the Metro.
Later on during the day on January 29, 2010, I was contacted by a producer at CBS Radio in Philadelphia, WPHT 1210 AM. He worked for the Dom Giordano Talk Show, which is on from 6:00 – 10:00 PM, and asked if I was available to be interviewed about the contents of the Metro article and fantasy sports in general. I replied that I would be more than happy to oblige, so on Monday, February 1, 2010, I was on the Dom Giordano Show for 15 minutes talking about fantasy sports and promoting Fantasy Judgment.
Dom was a terrific host and did a great job promoting me, the website, and fantasy sports in general. I truly got the sense he was in awe about how popular and prosperous the industry really is. He was also intrigued that there is a fantasy version of just about everything, including Congress. I doubt Dom would be drafting Nancy Pelosi. I enjoyed my time on the air with Dom, and I hope to get the opportunity to do it again.
So Fantasy Judgment has been in the newspaper and on the radio. I don’t know how this will translate into potential business or visibility, but it certainly ain’t a bad start especially since I have been relying solely on social networking sites and word of mouth so far. Hopefully, this is just the tip of the iceberg!
