ALL IN Sports Talk was started by Steve Gennaro in 2015 after a frustration with the lack of local, regional, and national main stream media coverage of soccer in Canada and the United States. Steve is a MLS accredited journalist who covers Toronto FC. He is the host of #TFCtalk and the former co-host of Total Futbol on 88.9FM in Toronto. Steve's work has been featured on ESPN.com, CTV News, LFCTV, and Anfield Index, in addition to a plethora of local, national, and international websites, blogs, TV and radio stations. Steve is also a Professor who teaches Media Studies at York University in Toronto, Canada.
Steve was profiled in 2016 on Dan McLaren’s “Leaders in Digital Sport” podcast https://audioboom.com/posts/5239582-dr-steve-gennaro-york-university-toronto-all-in-sports-talk & was a keynote speaker at both the #DSSUMMIT16 & #FOSC16
