Athletes and the media: An uneasy relationship
The Big Deal podcast episode 21
There is always tension between athletes and journalists, along with their respective employers. How do they make the relationship work?
In many ways, sports stars and the media rely on each other. But still, both have their own interests and goals, and when these don't align, simmering frustrations boil over.
In our previous episode, Kyle Chalmers openly reflected on his own battles with the media last year. His criticisms, reaction and calls for more support for athletes made national headlines.
In this episode, we unpack the key issues through our unique perspectives - Tredders the star athlete turned media personality, Dion the sports media veteran of 30+ years and Monty the former reporter turned sports marketer.
