Erik Horne is a breaking news editor for The Athletic. He joined the Press Pass podcast to discuss the path he took to get to this point. Horne touches upon the line he has to walk as a breaking news editor to entice readers to subscribe to The Athletic without giving up too much of his writers' work, the subscription-based model in sports media at large, and the importance of the connections he made with the National Association of Black Journalists as a young reporter. He also explained why Little Caesar's Arena in Detroit has the best setup for media members, what restaurants in OKC he's excited to back to once the world is normal again, and more.
