Selena Roberts leaving NY Times for Sports Illustrated
- "Columnist Selena Roberts is leaving The New York Times and is headed for Sports Illustrated, which recently lost its star columnist, Rick Reilly, to ESPN.
The Bristol Stompers also were interested in landing Roberts, but she evidently resisted their charm$, something few newspaper sports journalists have been able to do in recent months and years."
- From Neil Best's Watchdog blog, "NY Times Columnist to Leave for SI Gig," 11/16/07
- UPDATE, 2/8/09: Selena Roberts in the news via illegally transferred government information regarding the name Alex Rodriguez which she chose to make public.
