On this month’s episode of the Chicago/Midwest Emmy Award-winning Class is in Session presented by UI Health, Doug Glanville explores the insider culture of sports media, exploring the relationship between journalists and beat writers with the players, teams and sports leagues they cover on a day-to-day basis.
