Western New England University to Host Boston-Based National Sports Journalist Mike Reiss

WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2017 - 1:01 AM Business , All News

The Western New England University Center for International Sport Business in the College of Business, will host Mike Reiss, a Boston-based national sports journalist who covers the New England Patriots football team. His work has frequently appeared on ESPN’s Sports Center, NFL Insiders, NFL Live, and ESPN Radio. Reiss will speak on Thursday, November 2, at 7:00 p.m. in the Lyman and Leslie Wood Auditorium, Sleith Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

Reiss began his career covering the Patriots for the team’s official newspaper, Patriots Football Weekly, after which he worked for the MetroWest Daily News and subsequently, the Boston Globe. Reiss joined ESPN in 2009, where he has remained since, as the NFL national reporter covering the New England Patriots.

Reiss is an innovator in providing around-the-clock and interactive sports coverage, creating his “Reiss’ Pieces” blog in 2002 at Boston.com, which he continues today at mikereiss.net. In 2015, Reiss teamed up with former Patriots wide receiver Troy Brown to write Patriot Pride: My Life in the New England Dynasty, which chronicles Brown’s 15-year career with the Patriots.

This event is presented by the Center for International Sport Business (CISB) and is sponsored by the Western New England University Alumni Association.
