NEW YORK , NY (July 27, 2023) – Yahoo Sports, the internet’s No. 2 ranked sports property, today announced the appointment of Kendall Baker as Senior Writer. In his new role, Baker will help oversee newsletter and cross-platform strategy, including launching a new daily newsletter.

“As one of the internet’s most relied upon resources for daily sports content, Yahoo Sports is committed to investing in the best and brightest talent,” said Ryan Spoon, President of Yahoo Sports. “Kendall has earned a reputation as a bonafide industry thought leader and unmatched curator of sports content, and we’re delighted to welcome him to the team as we continue to grow the property and explore new editorial strategies.”

“Yahoo Sports has cemented itself as one of the most trusted, enduring sports communities in the industry,” said Baker. “I’m grateful to join the company at such an exciting time and to work with a team that values insightful editorial content when many media companies are pulling back.
