Like many of the writers at The Sweet Science, Joe Rein has a style all his own. And that style helped him win the May 2005 CJ Award for superlative boxing journalism. In this installment of Boxing Channel Radio, Charles Jay chats with the Los Angeles-based Rein, a well-rounded communicator who teaches television production in the entertainment studies program at UCLA.
Rein’s award-winning story, entitled “What a Tangled Web We Weave,” described the goings-on at a Hopkins-Taylor press conference from an angle that was highly unique, to say the least. In this interview, he talks about his story, his general approach to writing feature pieces, and the Hopkins-Taylor fight. Click the podcast icon below for access.
