I reached out to Jonah Keri the day Grantland died.
My message was simple: You’re obviously going to be fine no matter what happens. But just in case you ever need help with a website, I’d love to be your guy. Two months later, we were on the phone discussing the project.
In the wake of Grantland’s demise, Jonah opted to publish content on a variety of platforms. He writes for Sports Illustrated, CBS Sports, Rolling Stone, and a host of other publications. He also moved his iTunes chart-topping podcast — The Jonah Keri Podcast — to the Nerdist Network. He needed his website to aggregate content from multiple platforms so readers could easily keep up with his work.
WordPress was the perfect solution for Jonah. I created custom post types based on content type — articles, books, podcasts, and events — and added custom fields to make publishing content as streamlined as possible for Jonah. Page templates distributed the content by type.
Jonah is one of the hardest-working and most prolific journalists in America. He needed a website that could keep up with him. WordPress helped me deliver a product that exceeded expectations.
