Fearless Writing – Kevin Cowherd

Mike Barlow

Admired sports columnist and author Kevin Cowherd offers his perspectives on journalism, fearless writing and the importance of including the voices of real people in non-fiction narratives.

Kevin is the author of When the Crowd Didn’t Roar, a wonderful book that chronicles a 2015 match-up between the Baltimore Orioles and the Chicago White Sox played in a stadium with no fans. Many of the events described in Kevin’s book eerily foreshadow the major league games played in empty stadiums and arenas during the pandemic.

 I caught up with Kevin recently and spoke with him about his long career as a newspaper journalist. It's a great interview, and Kevin clearly demonstrates why he's one of the best sport writers in the business.
