John Rawlings - 2017

John Rawlings had many years of writing and editing experience under his belt when he arrived in St. Louis to take a position with The Sporting News. He spent 18 years as Editorial Director of the weekly that had become the nation’s premier sports publication, and during that time, he guided TSN and Major League Baseball to their initial forays toward a presence on the Internet. Both efforts were huge successes. The Sporting News website became one of the most popular sports-oriented sites in the world and regularly registered four million viewers per day.
