Boston Sports Media Contact Information

I’ve decided to compile a list of “Official” email addresses for Boston sports media members. These are all their “corporate” email addresses, unless otherwise noted. Many of these are acquired as a result of the person emailing me. I will not be posting “private” email addresses unless specifically requested by the media person. This list will grow and evolve in time, and will get a permanent link under the “BSMW Material” link to the left. If some are missing, it’s because I don’t have an “official” address for them.

If you’re a media member and would like your address added to the list, please let me know.
