Chris Broussard: Being True To Yourself
Fox Sports analyst, commentator, and radio host, Chris Broussard, took time out to chat with host Michael Redd about his path to becoming an influential voice in sports journalism, how betting on himself has allowed him to remain objective, and his involvement with the K.I.N.G. Movement.
"When I talk to young people I say, ‘There’s a fine line between confidence and arrogance … and you have to learn how to walk it.’" – Chris Broussard
Chris is a longtime sports journalist, best known for his coverage of the NBA, and has contributed to The New York Times, ESPN The Magazine, ESPN.com, and has appeared as an analyst on ESPN's SportsCenter, NBA Countdown, First Take (alongside FS1 colleague Skip Bayless – whom he joins regularly as a contributor on Undisputed), and NBA Fastbreak.
