About Lettermen Row

An independent multimedia outlet covering Ohio State sports, Lettermen Row provides year-round coverage of one of the most successful athletic departments in the country for perhaps the largest, most passionate fan base at the collegiate level. Our company blends written content with podcasts and video to provide truly comprehensive insight into the Buckeyes.

Lettermen Row has placed an emphasis on hiring experienced, professional journalists to match with unparalleled analysis from former Buckeyes. That combination allows for the company to dig deep and offer an understanding of the latest games, plays, recruiting moves and more that can’t be matched in a competitive Columbus market.

Lettermen Row reaches millions of Ohio State fans every month through its website, YouTube channel, podcast platforms and social-media accounts — and is still growing.
