One of the harder interviews to get in sports is with public relations and media relations people. One of the reasons is that they feel it is their job to be behind the story in the background and not be the story itself. That being said, Heather Whaling, owner of Geben Communication, recently had the chance to talk with Lauren Moran, media relations coordinator for the New York Yankees (and last year made her debut as the press-box announcer and official scorer for Yankees spring training games in Tampa)
The interview is not laid out in the traditional way many people print Q&A's. It is more of a narrative. In Heather's article, you get some great tidbits that you may or may not have heard before. The main point to take from the article is that working in sports communications is NOT a glamourous job. It is demanding and requires a lot of sacrifice. If you read between these lines, it is a job you need to get into when you are young, before you are juggling marriage, family, and children (Lauren graduated from Marist College in 2007).
Take a look at the full article. It is worth the read.
