Subject: Bowling writer needed
My name is Dan Benton, and I'm president of Secondary Sports relations
for a company called "The Most Valuable Network." We're a company that
started nearly two years ago, with just a few guys writing on a free
hosted web site about a handful of baseball teams. Since then we've
expanded to any and all sports we can gather writers for. We've also
moved our domain to a different server, and have grown a great deal
since day one.
Recently we've expanded into other sports. less "popular" sports.
Bowling is a game we've all played, a game we all love. And we at MVN
feel it deserves more attention. So if you're interested, please read
Now, one of the very first questions I'm normally asked is, "Will I be
paid?" Bluntly, no. You will not be paid, yet. Eventually, when the
company gets bigger, of course we'll begin to pay our writers. This
company doesn't expect to stay at a stand still. For example, recently
on Sport Talk Cleveland, the host referred to us and proclaimed "By the
time it's all said and done, The Most Valuable Network will be the
Sports Illustrated of the 21st century."
To anyone who has worked for us, or followed us, knows that is not to
outlandish, as we've grown a great deal in a matter of two years.
We've actually been accepted for media in 3 of the 4 major sports.
Hockey being the only one we lack, due to few writers. Over the
winter, one of our baseball writers, Jeff Howe of the Angels, actually
attended and reported to us for the MLB winter meetings.
I personally also write for the New York Giants and have been accepted
for national NFL media, as well as local New York Giants media. So
writing for us does have it's perks.
