Harrison Faigen: Credentialed Reporter, Editor and Multimedia Journalist
Find me on Twitter here
Hi, my name is Harrison Faigen, and I am currently a credentialed journalist and SEO expert focused on crafting the highest-quality Lakers coverage possible. I have experience both writing for and running a website, and an extensive history of telling all kinds of stories across many different mediums, from longform feature writing, to beat coverage and podcasting. I’ve also made appearances on television and other live video sources.
Currently, I’m the editor-in-chief and senior producer at Silver Screen and Roll, the website where I’ve spent most of my career since July of 2013 (outside of a brief hiatus during which I covered the team as a senior writer at Lakers Nation). During my second stint here, I’ve built up one of the highest quality writing, podcasting and video team seen in the Lakers sphere, and I spend most of my days directing that coverage, in addition to being on the beat doing interviews at practices, games and shootarounds to write and podcast about the team myself.
As someone who grew up a diehard basketball fan in California, this is the dream life for me. Lakers fans are among the most passionate in sports, and I’m just as enthusiastic about making sure they have the most comprehensive coverage of their team possible.
That means long hours, as well as both covering the big stories and keeping my nose to the ground to hunt for the smaller and (sometimes) more fun ones, from doing the first major profile on Andre Ingram years before his memorable end-of-season breakout, to digging in and getting nerdy while figuring out exactly how Frank Vogel wants his new Lakers team to approach things on defense.
I can also tell stories outside of just your traditional basketball feature, ranging from a college baseball team’s special bond with a child with cancer to how a 61-year-old former professional basketball player is attemtpting an NBA comeback.
I’ve written plenty more beyond those things, much of which you can find on my sample page, but if you’re interested in what you’ve heard so far and want to learn more, please feel free to reach out to me via email at email@example.com.
