I have teased this news most of the week, but it’s finally official: I’ve hired another writer to join Team TBL. Please put your hands together and welcome Sam Eifling to the site. He’s written for many media outlets, and you may have seen his thoughts on Grantland. He also writes a mean book review. He’ll be writing about the media, among other things. Sam has an internship at the New York Times in August, but will still be contributing to the The Big Lead. His first post will go up this weekend. If you’d like to email him: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last month, Barry Janoff joined the site. He’ll be primarily writing about sports business and marketing. If you’d like to email him: email@example.com.
