At the first Varsity Letters of 2013, three pre-eminent sports media reporters—Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, Richard Sandomir of the New York Times, and Deadspin's John Koblin—tackled the biggest issues in sports media today, including ESPN's delicate balance as a broadcast partner and journalistic enterprise, the prospects for print and online sports media, and how to pick your Twitter battles.
