BASG Cast

BASGcast (Ep. 124): Ann Killion on journalism and the 49ers

San Francisco Chronicle columnist (and California Sportswriter of the Year) Ann Killion talks with Bay Area Duck Guy and Bay Area Sports Guy about her background and how she got into the business. After the break, Ann and the guys discuss the state of the 49ers.

Topics include:

  • Why she became a sportswriter
  • The glorious world of social media (and trolls!)
  • How journalism has changed over the years
  • The 49ers’ search for coaches
  • How much control Jed York really has
  • Levi’s Stadium’s *interesting* debut season
  • Karma in sports

BrianDavisSFG Too bad, you’ll miss our segment about internet commenters and people on Twitter who feel the need to say rude things either to or about Ann because she’s a woman.

Bay Area Sports Guy BrianDavisSFG Nothing to do with being a woman for me, I just feel she’s always wanting to bait and wind up and be anti 49ers, anti Giants at any given opportunity.

Far from professional.

What is Bay Area Sports Guy?

It is the top independent sports site covering the teams that play in the best sports region in the United States. BASG is not an ordinary fan blog. It is a place where sports news is broken and analyzed by writers with access who are not afraid to question the status quo, writers who also produce original content in the form of videos, photographs and podcasts.
