Today's alum of the day is Rachel Nichols (BSJ95), who debuts her new show "Unguarded" tonight on CNN. Nichols is perhaps best known for her work at ESPN, but she's now at CNN and taking a different approach to sports TV shows. As Nichols explains in this Q&A, "We want it to be a show for a more general fan that's looking at sports from the sort of bigger picture perspective." Find out more at the link below.

Sports Illustrated is showcasing its long-form narrative strength with a new online home for long-form journalism. This piece is long, but totally worth the read. "Lost Soul" tells the incredible story of Bison Dele (once known as Brian Williams). Many of you may be too young to remember his time in the NBA, but his story is definitely one to know. Check it out and leave some comments about what you think.

Hey everyone, in case you missed today's Hangout with +Coley Harvey (BSJ07), here's the complete video. Coley touched on a wide variety of topics that I think you all will find useful, including:

- How to earn respect (and trust) from your sources
- "The Dance" of gaining/using information
- The need to patient as a young reporter
- And much, much more

Take a little bit of time to watch the video, then let me know if you have any questions or if there are key aspects that you want to emphasize. Enjoy!
