"It’s really a chance to let fans get to know them off the track. I feel like a lot of people know you from the track but for them to really support you and follow you throughout the season, they need to know about you off the track."
My guest for today’s episode is Tiara Williams. Some of you may be familiar with her since her post-race interviews have garnered quite a bit of traction in the past two years. She pushes all of her content on her Instagram page called Real Talk With Tee. Tee was a former heptathlete at Bethune-Cookman and then Texas Tech, which is where she first decided to pick up a camera and mic.
Her rapid ascent in the track content creator space has been super cool to watch. She was part of The Magic Boost Program that I helped start, where our vision is for a track and field media landscape where those covering the sport more fully reflect and resemble the athletes competing in the stadium: youthful, diverse, and innovative.
Tee embodies all of those values in the way she’s able to make athletes feel comfortable, open up and still have some fun. You’ve seen her videos. Now get to know the woman behind them.
