Chris Raymond Visit

img_1501Chris Raymond, the deputy editor of Details magazine, came to visit my Features class in the Fall 08 semester. He discussed issues in journalism and talked about his career: he was a founding editor of ESPN The Magazine and the founding editor of ESPN Books. A 1987 graduate of Penn State, he started his career at Esquire where he edited Mike Lupica¹s Sporting Life column. In 1998, he helped launch ESPN The Magazine, later serving as college sports editor, then as a deputy editor. In 2001, he joined GQ as a senior editor.He has assigned and edited five stories that were included in Houghton Mifflin¹s Best American Sports Writing series and edited ³It Never Rains in Tiger Stadium² by John Ed Bradley, which was named ³best sports book² of 2007 by Sports Illustrated. He was an inspiring guest. Said one student: “He’s so young.” You rock, Chris.
