Meet the Staff: Contributor, Amit Badlani

Amit Badlani

If you’re a Mets fan, you may be familiar with the work I did over on MetsBlog last season. Since then, I’ve graduated from Fordham University and completed my stay with WFUV Sports. At the radio station, I covered all eight major New York sports teams, including the Knicks for the 2011-2012 season.

Through the reporting experience I had at WFUV, I encountered some really cool guys in the media. I met Matt Cerrone and Andrew Vazzano while covering the Mets, and I met Tommy Dee at MSG while covering my first Knicks game. I have to thank them all for inviting me to contribute here.

My fanhood for the Knicks has grown while doing all this reporting (which is weird to me considering I’m no longer a fan of the Mets after covering them for three years). I even asked for a Steve Novak jersey for Christmas only to be disappointed when the they traded him last month, although I see the move for Bargnani was a good one when you don’t consider the draft picks, but that is a blog post for another time.

Anyway, I look forward to teaming up with Harris, Sam, and Ben to make TKB 2.0 the place to be (at least on the web) for Knicks fans to go to for news and analysis.
