Elias Makos, who used to work in the Expos’ marketing department before the franchise moved in 2004, moderated a panel at the recent sports journalism workshop at Concordia University looking at Montreal’s major-league baseball team.
And, fortunately for us, his work teaching Concordia students to handle video has come in handy here, and the entire hour-long discussion is available on YouTube:
It has more to do with the Expos and sports business than journalism, but it’s still a fascinating look at what went wrong with this franchise from people who know.
The panel includes:
- Elliott Price, Team 990 host and former Expos broadcaster
- Michael Barrett, Former Expos catcher
- Dave Van Horne, former Expos radio broadcaster
- Serge Touchette, journalist with RueFrontenac.com
