Jenni Carlson – Listening to the audience; defending the city

I posted a couple weeks ago about Oklahoma City Thunder reporter Darnell Mayberry’s impact on his audience — Thunder fans and Thunder players.

Today, I’ll post about another star sports reporter that continues to supply our audience with opinions, features and reports on all mediums.

I heard yesterday about how Sports Illustrated was featuring the Thunder’s Kevin Durant in this week’s issue. I heard that the reporter said the same tired tales about our awesome city. I bet we have a take on this tomorrow, I thought to myself.

Then I saw this:

That’s what’s great about Jenni Carlson. She has great instincts about what our community is talking about.


Simple. Because she listens.

She listens on Twitter – @jennicarlson. She listens on her blog. She listens on her radio show.

And then, just like Darnell, she appears with reports and opinions and features in any way she can reach you – video, blogging, columns, articles, live chats, Twitter, etc.
