In his more than 15-year journalism career, Chris Baldwin has worked at traditional newspapers and online publications, covering everything from the World Series to New York City politicians to Justin Timberlake. Baldwin helped guide WorldGolf.com from a near-startup to an established, respected brand that drew 3.5 million unique reader hits per month and recognition from the New York Times. He served as CultureMap managing editor until 2015.
Baldwin went to Michigan State before the Spartans got really good in basketball and he credits Michigan Journalism Hall of Famer Gloria Olman with teaching him to always write the truth, fearlessly. He won six national Associated Press Sports Editor awards in six years at the Asbury Park Press (NJ) before moving into the online world.
