Writers I Follow 2014

Yesterday I mentioned appreciating the local sports reporters for what they do. Today I’ve decided to create a listing of the Twins beat reporters and others I follow for Twins news and discussion. I’m doing this mostly for my own benefit – long term. I think it will be interesting to be able to look back a few years from now and see a snapshot of the media I followed in 2014.

The two most prominent media in the Twin Cities area are the Minneapolis Star-Tribune and the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Both have dedicated beat writers as well as others who regularly comment on local sports, including the Twins, especially in season.

Here is a listing of those I read regularly online:


  • LaVelle E. Neal, III
  • Phil Miller
  • Twins Centric
  • Howard Sinker

Pioneer Press

  • Mike Berardino


  • Rhett Bollinger

1500 ESPN Radio

  • Brandon Warne (beat writer in 2013, calls himself a “media free agent” now)

Fox Sports North

  • Tyler Mason

Local Bloggers

  • Twins Daily (Website that hosts Twins bloggers, led by four who merged their own sites to create it)
    • John Bonnes
    • Parker Hageman
    • Nick Nelson
    • Seth Stohs
  • Aaron Gleeman

Others I follow on Twitter who occasionally write about the Twins:

  • Jim Souhan Star-Tribune
  • Jon Krawczynski AP writer
