In November 2016, Tom Coughlin, who had retired from the NFL after 16 seasons, decided to turn his back on the sport and instead become an outdoors sports reporter.
After an interview with ESPN’s Outside the Lines and the opening of his own podcast, The Coughlins Sports Report, Coughler, who now runs a sports marketing company, became one of the most sought-after and coveted voices in the sport.
He’s still one of sports media’s most popular figures, having appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, The Colbert Report, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and more.
But this year, Caughlin and his wife, Michelle, decided that it was time for him to start his own radio show.
In 2017, Cufflin launched the Tom Cufflers Sports Report podcast and a website called The Tom Caughlins Sports Podcast.
This fall, the podcast became available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Stitcher, as well as its own streaming platform.
It has also expanded to other platforms, including Apple’s Beats 1 radio station.
The Tom Cuffs Sports Report is a podcast that focuses on sports, technology and the intersection of sports and technology.
This week, I spoke with Cufflins about the podcast, his new book, his sports business and what the future holds for sports journalism.
Q: I know a lot of people are disappointed with your podcast’s lack of coverage of the NFL, and that it’s not a regular topic of conversation.
How do you respond to that criticism?
A: I think it’s very unfortunate that I’m going to have to respond to it, and I think I’m being unfairly critical.
I think there are some people who have a very specific, narrow view of the sports world and they don’t realize the extent to which they’re misinformed, and when they do understand, they’re completely wrong.
And that’s a mistake that I think a lot people make.
The only thing I would say is that when you start out in sports journalism, you’re not going to understand everything that’s going on.
You’re going to start out at the beginning and you’re going do your best.
You start out learning, and you learn as you go, but then you’re never going to fully understand it until you’re in a position where you can make an informed decision about it.
And I think that’s why you’re always in that position, because you never know what you’re gonna find.
What inspired you to do this podcast?
I’m a lifelong fan of the sport of football.
And in the last eight years, I’ve been a huge sports fan for the most part.
And so when I started this podcast, I really just wanted to hear from my peers in the industry.
And there’s a lot that I could learn from them.
And then I also think that I would be able to contribute to the discussion on topics like this.
And at the same time, I think the podcast is really a reflection of the current state of sports journalism and the current trajectory of the industry, which I think is quite different than when I was there.
And it’s going to be a really interesting podcast, to see what’s coming.
Q.: You started your podcast after being on The Colbert Show and Inside Edition.
How did that process work for you?
A, I started the podcast because it was something that I wanted to do for a long time, and also because I thought it was really important to talk to people who had an appreciation for the sport, because the fans and the players don’t get enough attention.
And to see that these guys are doing what they do and that they’re doing it at the highest level, it’s something that’s really important.
Q., Why did you choose ESPN to produce your podcast?
A: It was an idea that I had for a while.
I was just thinking that the sports industry was in really bad shape, and ESPN was just really good at covering sports.
I didn’t know if they would be interested in it or not.
So I thought, well, let’s do it.
Q.: What is your favorite part of the job?
A, I love being able to sit down and talk with my friends, and have the conversation that we all need to have.
I love having a chance to speak to people about sports.
Q., What advice would you give to people wanting to become a sports reporter?
A. The first thing I tell people is to be respectful.
You want to treat people the way you would like to be treated.
And you have to do it the right way.
I’d just say to people, if you’re really doing this for a living, don’t be afraid to get your feet wet.
Just go do it for a little while.
What’s your advice for people interested in becoming a
