Jason Whitlock is a longtime sports writer, TV personality, radio host, podcaster and the newest member of the Outkick family. A graduate of and football letterman at Ball State University, Whitlock established himself as one of the country’s best and most fearless sports journalists while working at the Kansas City Star (1994-2010). His columns that dissected the intersection of sports and race won him the prestigious Scripps Howard National Journalism Award for Commentary in 2007. He’s the lone sports writer to ever win the award. In the past decade, Whitlock used his influence to establish two black media projects. He founded ESPN’s The Undefeated website and steered FOX Sports 1’s studio show “Speak For Yourself.” Whitlock’s point of view is driven by four things: 1) his Christian upbringing; 2) his football upbringing; 3) his father’s Booker T. Washington approach to life; 4) American patriotism. Among other things, Whitlock will write daily columns, podcasts and look for the next generation of fearless journalists.
