MEET SPORTS/MEDIA BRAND STRATEGIST: RENAY MARIE

Renay, tell us a little more about how you got into sports/media branding?

I first got my start when I first moved to Los Angeles, California working as a GSR at Staples Center sports arena.


I loved the atmosphere and energy of the game, and felt as though I was in my element.

From there by the grace of God, one thing lead to the next and I started to do some stuff with Fox Sports West followed by Slam Magazine.  

You truly are a jack of all trades! Tell us some more about when you started writing/blogging?

I first started writing/blogging my junior year of college at California State University of Los Angeles.

My professors really pushed the importance of versatility in whatever field or career you go into. 

I begin in a sense interning for Takeover TV entertainment and sports podcast/blog where I learned a lot and got the chance to really learn from hands on experience.


From there, I started covering sports primary as a sports writer for slums magazine which I currently still do part-time. 

What would you say to aspiring sports writers/bloggers who look up to your work?

I would say creativity, and finding your niche is key.


It’s not the most talented who succeed and get opportunities, it’s the one who works hard and loves what they do.
