Observer loses another beat reporter

Since I have seen a fair number of beat reporters leave. Is it safe to assume that beat reporters aren’t necessarily fans of the team they are covering.

Jonathan has been a Panthers fan for several years. This was all a business decision.

The observer is trash. At this point they should stop their panthers coverage and just run AP articles on the panthers. It’s a revolving door over there since person left for the athletic, and if you can’t replace person than idk what the hell you’re doing. 

there hasn’t been anything worthwhile from the observer on the panthers in years. It’s truly pathetic and a disgrace that a market the size of Charlotte has as bad of sports section as they do.

Says a lot about the Observer if you lose a beat reporter to go cover a team he isn’t a fan of. This keeps happening. 

The Observer is trash but business is business. Yeah, all things being equal I'd rather cover a team I'm a fan of, but offer me significantly more money and a better professional opportunity to cover another team and I'm gonna be gone. Just the way it is. If you're an engineer who grew up a Ford fan and go to work for them but GM offers you 50% more to work for them you'd be crazy to turn it down.

Again, I doubt people were lining up to be the beat reporter of the Texans.

I'd bet the line was quite long...

...paid jobs of this nature are shrinking in number rapidly.

You realize the difference between beat reporters and fan bloggers, right?

Nothing at all personal but I was never impressed. His press conference questions were always flat and he wanted to push this Mayfield thing too hard.

I wish him luck in his new endeavor.

I don't think being a fan has anything to do with the job you have as a beat reporter.
