Longtime Arcadia businessman, youth sports coach and civic leader Jim Edwards has now taken on a new title: chief wordsmith.
Edwards’ latest venture Daily Dose Sports (dailydsports.com) is an online magazine that delivers one new article each day to readers, centered on Edwards’ passion – sports.
“When I was in elementary school, I would buy sports biopics and was always interested in the history of the legends or historic sports site,” Edwards says. “I’m not one to write about last night’s score, or who won what championship, but more of the history of the championship game.”
His ultimate goal? To remind die-hard fans of incredible athletes and moments that shaped their lives through sports.
The stories began as a simple daily email to Edwards’ close friends. With a passion for writing, Edwards knew this would be his next venture and could grow into something more. And that it did. With now over 2,500 subscribers (and grow- ing), Edwards says his hope is to be the best way his readers start their day – with sports and a cup of coffee.
