Four years after the Davis Sports Deli Podcast came to an end, Aaron Fischman is excited to begin his second foray into podcasting, this time teaming up with his identical twin brother, Joshua, and his good friend Loren Lee Chen to cover the hell out of the NBA. Via the On the NBA Beat Podcast, similar to DSD, Aaron will primarily interact with fellow journalists who cover the Association’s various teams.
Watching the hapless Clippers at the Los Angeles Sports Arena from an early age was Aaron’s first education on the sport. And boy, was it illuminating. Later, he earned a master’s degree in Print and Digital Journalism at USC’s acclaimed Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. While there and since, he has covered the NBA, WNBA, college basketball and various other leagues and sports. Most notably, Aaron has covered the Sacramento Kings and LA Clippers for ESPN True Hoop, Slam Online, Neon Tommy and Vantage Sports, a basketball analytics website. Aaron also brings three years of radio experience, which he garnered from calling games and serving as a sports talk panelist for UC Davis’ KDVS radio station, 90.3 FM. He has been honored by the LA Press Club twice for feature stories on BMX racer Donny Robinson’s tragic history of head trauma (Nov. 2013) and a 2012 visit to NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.
