Post-Stanley Cup riot coverage earns Canadian TV reporter Rob Brown top spot in monthly SI.com Media Power List

Each month, Richard Deitsch compiles a list of the top ten newsmakers in sports media with the Media Power List. Topping his June list is CTV British Columbia reporter Rob Brown for his coverage of Vancouver’s post-Stanley Cup riots.

Deitsch writes, “It was visceral stuff, and so close was Brown to the action that you wondered at times if he'd be engulfed by some of the hooligans. His impact on viewers was huge: Brown became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter during his reporting.”

Second is “Those Guys Have All the Fun” author Jim Miller for his ESPN tell-all and third is CBS and TNT play-by-play announcer Marv Albert for his late-career renaissance.

Included in the top ten is NBC Sports Chairman Mark Lazarus, ESPN’s John Barr and Nicole Noren for their Murrow Award in Investigative Reporting, ESPN feature producer Scott Harves, BleacherReport.com CEO Brian Grey, Ohio State student journalists Zack Meisel and James Oldham, Woody Paige of The Denver Post and ESPN, and ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd.
