I just got back from a week off. Now we begin our big rush toward football season and the Bridgestone Invitational.
We have a lot of interesting stories planned.
Marla Ridenour and Jason Lloyd will be doing a bulk of the heavy lifting in getting our readers set for the golf tournament. Marla has been to two tournaments recently getting material together for four or five preview stories. Our main golf preview will run July 31. And then we will have multiple stories each day until the first round begins August 4. We will bring back the Bridgestone blog and are planning on multiple videos for Ohio.com.
George Thomas, Jim Isabella, Mike Beaven, Jonas Fortune and Marla all have feature stories leading into the high school football season. Our preview football section will run August 25 with six feature stories, five league previews and 47 football scouting reports on our main schools. As always, the Varsity Letters blog will have multiple items, and we are planning on several preview videos.
Here is what the rest of the staff will be working on.
If we have an NFL season, Nate Ulrich, newly married and refreshed from some vacation time, will be back with the Browns, leading you through free agency and then training camp. As always, he will keep pumping the best daily blog on the Browns up with great material.
Sheldon Ocker will have the Indians through the stretch drive. And Stephanie Storm with Kent State, Tom Gaffney on the University of Akron and Jason on Ohio State, will get you ready for the college football season.
It is my favorite time of year. It is busy, but I know we are producing quality material for the Beacon Journal and Ohio.com.
