Mike Bambach

After convincing Brad Pitt to become a movie star while they were students at the University of Missouri, Mike Bambach set out on the more glamorous career of print journalism.

Mike was an award-winning ink-stained wretch in newspapers from Colorado and Illinois to New York, North Carolina, Texas and Florida (twice).

He joined USA Today in 2004. A few years later he became an ethernet-stained wretch while leading the second generation of USA Today's digital sports coverage.

He joined American Sports Network in 2015 to help launch the website for the next big sports network. Take that Brad Pitt!
