"The key to happiness is knowing who you are." - Doug Gottlieb
Doug Gottlieb, sports media personality and host of “The Doug Gottlieb Show” on Fox Sports, joins The Brink of Midnight Podcast with John Brenkus.
In the world of sports media and being a personality on radio and TV, it’s a challenge to find an authentic voice. A lot of people have a shtick or act they put on that’s designed to get people to listen. Doug is unique - his shtick is being himself.
Doug was a great basketball player in the day, but, as you’re about to hear, it didn’t work out exactly how he thought it would. His rise to the top in sports media, working with ESPN, CBS Sports, and now Fox Sports, has been the result of sticking to his authenticity.
But where did that come from? How did he nurture his voice and stay true in a business when everyone is trying to stand out? Doug graciously goes deep on one of the biggest mistakes he made in college, and how he overcame it to build a life and career he loves. He shares how to think about finding your voice, and how to shift from being results-oriented to process oriented.
Sometimes our most important building blocks in life stem from the moments when we fall down. We are all imperfectly human and meant to grow and learn. Doug helps remind us that life is truly what we make of it!
