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.

  • 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
