Pitch Letter to Channel 4

Dead Programming Editor,

I think your viewers would love the new live show we are producing on sandiegosportsdomination.com called Friar Domination Live!

The show is a rebranding of our previous podcasting venture, the Friar Domination Podcast (FDP).

We considered the podcast a success in its limited run. Despite only producing episodes for approximately half of the 2016 San Diego Padres season, the show gained a small but loyal following, gaining about 1,000 total plays/downloads, despite only being available in podcast form and being in its first year of existence.

Hosted by myself, Jake Harman, and David Droegemeier, the FDP attracted many big-name guests, including Mark Grant (Padres TV color commentator and former major league player), Lee Jenkins (Sports Illustrated), Bernie Wilson (The Associated Press), Bob Scanlan (Padres radio/tv personality and former major league player), and several other members of the San Diego media. David and I prided themselves on producing a show that was fluid, easy to listen to, and provided great content and information sports fans NEED.

Currently in the first year of exclusive live shows via Facebook and Periscope, Friar Domination Live! has enjoyed a massive season debut, with over 400 people watching the first episode of the season. Although it is a small sample size, we believe these numbers will sustain and grow based on similar trends following this format with our San Diego Chargers and San Diego State Aztecs themed shows.

I would be happy to send you links to our shows and other content for your team to consider as a possible addition to your programming at Cox Channel 4 San Diego.

I thank you for your time and consideration. If you would like to know more, please email jake.sandiegosportsdomination@gmail.com or call (619) 249-8924.

I am the producer for SDSD's Friar Domination Podcast as well as co-host of the show. I cover the San Diego Padres, San Diego Chargers, SDSU Football, and the 2016 Olympic games. I've been involved in the San Diego sports scene since 2011 when I began hosting a sports talk show on Grossmont College's Griffin Radio. I became the stations sports director in fall of 2011 as well as picking up play by play duties for the Griffin baseball team. While at Grossmont, I covered baseball and football, while also doing the occasional high school game of the week for CIF football. I've handled play by play for the Golden State Athletic Conference baseball tournament.
