For the past three decades, George Smith Jr., Class of 1983, has specialized in covering the intersection of sports and society. While at ESPN in the 2000's Smith was the go-to reporter on breaking stories like Kobe Bryant's sexual assault case, Michael Vick's dogfighting ring and the Duke Lacrosse investigation. In this episode of Every Quarter, Smith looks back on his broadcast journalism career and the evolution of the business with Director of Communication Tracy Sweet. He recounts how he started off in the field, why social media has changed the game, and theorizes an approach to a potential on-camera interview with elusive fellow alum and New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick '71.
