Dodgers hire Weisman as Director, Digital and Print Content

|

The Los Angeles Dodgers today announced the hiring of veteran Los Angeles writer and editor Jon Weisman as Director, Digital and Print Content.
 
In the newly created role, Weisman will be responsible for creating and producing original digital content for the club's website, as well as overseeing all of the Dodgers' publications, including Dodgers Magazine, and integrating them online.
 
In 2002, Weisman founded the independent website "Dodger Thoughts," which emerged as a leading voice covering the Dodgers. For his efforts on the site, Los Angeles Magazine named him one of the five most influential people in sports in 2006. "Dodger Thoughts" was subsequently hosted by both the Los Angeles Times and ESPNLA.com in the past decade.
 
Weisman is also an accomplished author and, in 2009, he published the book "100 Things Dodgers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die," a comprehensive take on the franchise's history and culture.
 
Weisman began his sportswriting career in 1986 and has written news, features, opinion and analysis for such media outlets as the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles Daily News, Pasadena Star-News, ESPN.com, SI.com, NBC Sports, Baseball Prospectus, The Hardball Times and Sports on Earth.
 
Most recently, Weisman spent seven years at Variety, where he was senior editor focused on film and television, including the intersection of sports and entertainment. He has also had more than a dozen live-action and animation television scripts produced.
 
Weisman is a native of Los Angeles, where he lives with his wife and three children.
