Turner Sports and Bleacher Report sports host, anchor and reporter Taylor Rooks is featured in our Saturday speaker lineup for the Association for Women in Sports Media’s annual convention — June 13-16 at the Tampa Marriott Water Street, formerly the Tampa Marriott Waterside Hotel & Marina.
Rooks' new weekly, one-on-one interview series, "Take It There with Taylor Rooks" debuted on Bleacher Report in April. Rooks previously worked at SNY, CBS Sports Network, the Big Ten Network and hosted the podcast, “Timeout with Taylor Rooks.”
“We are ecstatic to welcome Taylor Rooks and the Bleacher Report team to the Tampa convention”, AWSM President Kelly Burke said. “Taylor’s disarming interview style and engaging personality make her a coveted addition to our lineup. I’ve followed her rapid ascent in sports media since her days as a student at the University of Illinois. She exemplifies an AWSM value of women supporting women. This opportunity for our members to hear about her varied experiences and ability to transcend barriers will be inspiring."
Rooks is scheduled to speak at #AWSM2019 luncheon on Saturday, June 15. Registration for #AWSM2019 is ongoing but expected to sell out. To sign up, click here: https://www.123signup.com/register?id=rqkrk
