Welcome to The Riverfront.

I’m Chad Dotson, but I’m guessing you already know that. For many years now, I’ve been writing a weekly column about the Reds for Cincinnati Magazine, and for a few years, I also wrote about baseball for ESPN. But wait…there’s more! I founded Redleg Nation, have been hosting a Reds podcast since 2007, and wrote a fun book about the Reds with my buddy Chris.

So yeah, Cincinnati sports are my passion. It’s your passion too, right? That’s where “The Riverfront” comes along.

Every week, in your inbox, we’re going to be discussing Cincinnati sports. This city has a special relationship with its sports teams, though it’s often a heartbreaking one. I want to explore that relationship from the fan’s perspective.

You can get straight reporting on the Reds and Bengals and Bearcats and Musketeers and FC Cincinnati in plenty of other outlets. “The Riverfront” is where we go deeper. Every week, we’ll be analyzing current events in Cincinnati sports from the fan’s perspective. Your perspective. My perspective.

If you’ve read my writing over the years, you know that I like to have fun and I like to be irreverent. That won’t change here. So come along for the ride. It’s going to be a blast.
