Jim Brady, CEO of Spirited Media

Being Adept at Adapting

"You want to put a newsroom full of people who are willing to adapt. And who are willing to move on a dime. It's not finding all these people who know exactly where things are right now, and feel strongly that it needs to stay that way. You need to fill a newsroom with people who don't have any idea where it's going to be in five years, but are willing to move quickly to get there when the hints start to appear."

Chad Capellman had a chance to re-connect with Jim Brady, who is currently CEO of the consulting firm Spirited Media. Jim has previously held roles that included Sports Editor and Executive Editor of washingtonpost.com, Editor in Chief of Digital First Media, General Manager of TBD, Head of News and Sports for America Online and public editor of ESPN from 2015 to 2018. Jim looked back on some of the more free-wheeling days at WashingtonPost.com ahead of a 25th anniversary reunion. They also talked about how local publications should think about measuring success, the generational divide from both a journalistic and a digital perspective, his favorite management lesson, the value of extended road trips, when being cursed at can be a good thing and how, as a NY Jets fan, he has dealt with the infamous Butt Fumble game.

Amateur Hour for NCAA, Years in the Making

After the Supreme Court unanimously rejected the NCAA in the NCAA v. Alston student-athlete compensation case this week, Yahoo! Sports columnist Dan Wetzel writes that the college athletics governing body only has itself to blame as "[t]he lack of leadership, the lack of compromise, the lack of foresight to do anything but keep kicking the can down the road has now left college athletics in a precarious spot where it no longer controls its future."
