Hello, Michigan fans!
My name is Anthony Broome, and I am the new editor of The Big House Report.
I was as shocked as anyone when I found out that Josh would be taking a position over at SB Nation. At first, I was devastated, because I thought that meant the end of TBHR.
Joshua Henschke has worked so damn hard to build this website and brand up to something that Michigan fans could count on and be proud of. It was only a matter of time until something better came along. I mean, we are talking about a guy who has been nationally published here.
Right after Josh told me that he was leaving TBHR, he told me that he wanted me to take reigns and keep everything going, which caught me completely off-guard. I have not been in the journalism game for very long, and the fact that he would even consider me for this position is crazy, but here I am, and here we are in a new era of this website.
So, as your new managing editor, I will tell you a little about myself.
I am currently a junior at Central Michigan University, where I am majoring in Broadcasting and Cinematic Arts with a minor in Journalism. I go to school full-time and have a job (well, two now, I guess).
My love for the University of Michigan has been something I have carried with me for my entire life. As a kid, you hear that fight song and see the football team run out onto the field and slap that banner, and you know that is the place you want to be.
Unfortunately, actually attending school there was a pipe dream because of finances and not offering my program, but that changes nothing in regards to how I feel about the school. In some ways, I feel as if not being able to be in Ann Arbor makes my love for the school even larger because I cannot be there.
Josh did a great job of laying the foundation of what this website can be. I have immense respect for anyone who can build an outlet from nothing because I have tried many times and failed. To walk into a position like this and have the brand established is a huge relief and honor for me.
That being said, improvements can always be made, and I will do my best to find these and act on them. This group has only scratched the surface of what it can accomplish, and I am damn proud for the opportunity to oversee it.
Any successful website comes from the readers and fans, though, so please, anything we can do to make this better for the people, let us know. All I can guarantee is our best effort and to grow as writers every day.
That’s all I’ve got for now. Do not hesitate to contact me or any of the staff any time. You guys are what makes this machine run.
