Jason Whitlock, successful columnist and journalist, brings his thought-provoking and fearless style to the airwaves of FOX Sports Radio. He joined FOXSports.com in 2007, and is currently a national columnist for the site.
Whitlock was an All-State offensive lineman in high school in Indianapolis, as he blocked for star quarterback Jeff George, who was eventually the first overall pick in the 1990 NFL Draft. Whitlock played college football at Ball State University, and lettered as an offensive tackle in both 1987 and 1988. He graduated from Ball State in 1990 with a journalism degree.
Whitlock's journalism career has had several stops, including the Bloomington Herald Times, The Charlotte Observer, Vibe Magazine, Playboy Magazine, and the Kansas City Star. In 2008, Whitlock was awarded the National Journalism Award from the Scripps Howard Foundation. He was the first sports writer to win the award, as his columns in the Star had the "ability to seamlessly integrate sports commentary with social commentary and to challenge widely held assumptions along the racial divide."
