Dieter Kurtenbach

Journalist in Oakland, California

Here's what I can deliver: massive pageview numbers and engagement with "capital-J" journalism-quality content.

It's what I did at Fox Sports (82 million page views between January to May 2017, top of the class), KNBR-San Francisco, and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, and it's what I'm going to do for you.

How? Because even in these chaotic times, I stand strong in the belief that our top priority as journalists is to serve the audience.

That means asking questions, of course, but also providing answers. It means using access and ingenuity to provide unique and pointed insight.

It's not enough to tell the audience what happened anymore — it's our job to say what it all meant.

And that means working in the best mediums for the story. Sometimes that means making video; othertimes, a podcast is the best means; and I still believe in the power and viability of the written word and I have the data to back up that belief.

This is the best time to be a sports journalist because this is the best time to be a consumer. Let's bridge the gap between the two parties.
