I'm Chris Strauss, an editor, writer and digital strategist living in Brooklyn.
I've been the managing editor of The Athletic New York since its launch in February 2018. Prior to that, I managed a team of editors and writers as the Sr. Director of Social News/Editorial for FOX Sports Digital, which doubled its audience during our first year. I've also recently consulted for a number of editorial projects including Excelle Sports and The Action Network.
As a founding writer for USA TODAY Sports' For The Win, I covered three Super Bowls, the Sochi Olympics and wrote long and short about everything from the wildest fans in the NFL (hello Buffalo) to what it's like to tag along with an ocean racing yacht team.
I've also been a staff writer for Fusion TV's late-night show Come Here and Say That and my work has also appeared over the years in Best Life, The Daily, ESPN The Magazine, McSweeney's, Men's Fitness, PEOPLE, Pittsburgh Magazine and more.
