CHICAGO – Exavier Pope has impressed a blogger enough to start a viral campaign to sign a contract with ESPN. With recent talent movements at several major sports media properties, a blogger for ChicagoNow, a blogging site operated by the Chicago Tribune, independently decided to take networks on a task of putting up the online campaign this week.
In the post “ESPN: 3 strong reasons to call Exavier Pope“, Denise Nathan lays out 3 reasons relating to Exavier’s legal background, professional and personal reputation, overcoming significant odds to success, and sharp analysis as to why a major network would sign Exavier Pope to a long term contract. So far the article has been shared hundreds of times across social media sites, and according to blogger Denise Nathan the article has been read over ten thousand times at the time of this press release.
The Chicago based blogger has even enlisted a hashtag for her campaign “#CallforPope.”
Exavier is flattered by the campaign now being shared across the internet, but is clear he has no favorites yet in his quest to find a network home:
“I’d welcome a call from ESPN, but I would be most open to a call from any network where I would be able to display my first rate brand of analysis, my passion, and my trademarked style, as well working with awesome, forward looking people who allowed my creativity and voice to flourish. That could be ESPN, Fox, NBC, CBS, or Turner. I’ve been in talks for quite some time, and it is all about the right fit. The right situation where God puts me in order to have the right impact in media, that is where I will go.”
