When he was a senior living in St. Bonaventure’s Francis Hall, Adrian Wojnarowski could not have possibly envisioned the path his career in sports journalism has taken.
Back then, “Woj” was receiving rejection letters from every newspaper he applied to. Instead of lining his dorm room wall with posters like many college students, he decorated by posting each letter.
“By the spring of my senior year, it was covered,” Wojnarowski said. “Some were nicer than others, some were just form letters, but I don’t feel that far away from that.”
He may not feel that far removed from the disappointment that came with rejection, but the NBA’s go-to reporter for breaking news and inside scoops isn’t receiving any of those letters anymore. Last Friday, he launched a site of his own, “The Vertical with Woj,” on Yahoo! Sports.
