Sports Illustrated Senior Writer and Boston College alumnus Chris Mannix will be coming to speak on his experiences in sports business and media, and his career path. Graduating from BC’s College of Arts and Sciences in 2003 as an English major, Chris Mannix is currently a Senior Writer for Sports Illustrated, covering both the NBA and boxing. Some of his work includes the NBA “Weekly Notes” column and the “Inside Boxing” column for SI. He is the host of the Chris Mannix Show for the NBC Sports Network, as well as a ringside reporter for NBC. Mannix’s rise to fame wasn’t conventional, however, and he has a wide array of experiences in the sporting world that make his career path so interesting. He has boxed with Juan Manuel Marquez, served as a locker room attendant for the Boston Celtics, and even played Michael Jordan one-on-one in basketball. Mannix looks to delve into his experiences in the sports business and media world and provide insight to Boston College.
