What’s up with Sports Media?
National sports media shares a general viewpoint that professional sports teams in Portland, Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego and Las Vegas don’t hold the same rivalries or fanhood as those on in Boston, New York or Chicago.
Why? Most media is based in the North East and the teams are older than their counter parts along the West Coast.
It’s great if live in EST or you’re a fan of a team based in the North East. It’s good if you only care about your team or one sport.
However, what about those of us who want to know what division rivals are up to or those of us who want to know when our secondary MLS, MLB, NBA or NFL team does something noteworthy?
What about those who would like to know what’s going on in L.A., Vegas, Bay Area or Seattle Professional sports before caring about anything from Boston, Chicago or New York?
How about those of us who work in sports or media here and do not want to move to the East Coast for our next big break?
Finally, We Are West Coast Sports is the newsletter for you.
Are you tired of New York, Boston, Chicago and Philadelphia sports teams crowding your favorite sports media website and job boards?
We are building a new sports media company focused exclusively on professional sports in CA, WA, OR, and NV because we are also tired of sports media framing everything for the East Coast media consumers. We’re tired of being told we need to move away when there are many great sports stories and teams in the time zone we grew up in.
Sports information is plenty. We aren’t here to be another voice but we are here to be the voice for those who care about sports on the West Coast and those making their own waves here.
Our beginning starts with the We Are West Coast Sports Newsletter which will curate the best stories from the West Coast as well as West Coast angles from national stories. We’ll also share jobs for sports marketing, communications and writing across CA, WA, OR and Nevada. We’ll promote and share the insights that you can only get from the West Coast. It’s a great resource for tracking the teams in your region or sport you casually follow so you can have better sports conversations with friends and family.

We Are West Coast Sports
We are the only sports media brand dedicated to building and connecting the West Coast Sports Community. We believe fans in the Pacific Northwest, Bay Area, Vegas and Southern California are just as passionate as a Bostonian, Chicagoan, New Yorker or any other fan. We believe sports talent and creators who know the difference should be pushed to the forefront.
Our mission is to build a community of sports fans and professionals who care about sports culture in Pacific Standard Time. Regions aren’t just united by time zones. They’re common in music, culture, weather, activities, workdays, weather and lifestyles.

We’ll connect the dots and share the references that we know in the West Coast. Your conversations at the water cooler and the bar will improve without sending you down a sports wormhole or making you dig thru New York, Chicago and Boston content.
