Moving on - I've resigned from FOXSports

Earlier today I resigned from my position as senior staff writer for I have so much respect for my colleagues and editors and am proud to have worked with and for them since 2014.

I’ve enjoyed getting to work alongside my friend and the talented workhouse known as @DamonMartin. I’ve always felt supported by my all of my editors - Jonathan Bradley (@Jon_Bradley), Zack Pierce, Barry Werner, Evan Rodner (@EvanTheBeard )and, previously, @DJShrope - and I have benefited greatly from their direction for the near two years I’ve worked there.

My reasons for leaving have nothing to do with my staff writer colleagues or my editors. I’ve resigned because, speaking broadly, it has become clear to me that there are philosophical differences between myself and the executive leadership there on important issues of journalism ethics.

We can’t ever know for certain if we’re in the right when we take stands on issues, but we can be ourselves and do our best to do our work in the way we believe it should be done.

As far as I am concerned, the split with FOXSports is amicable. Even though I have disagreements with executives on issues that matter a great deal to me, I am grateful that they listened to my concerns and spoke with me openly.

It is entirely possible to respect people with whom we disagree, and I have respect for the executive leadership there and wish them all the best.

For now, all I can say is that I’ll continue to try to tell the stories of the most interesting people in the world as best as I can. The writing won’t stop, and I won’t change who I am or what I’m about.
