James Rider

Sports Reporter

Hello, I’m James Rider, sports reporter and videographer here at Your News Now Sports.  I am so happy to start my career in Lima.

In May 2010 I graduated from Ball State University.  During my time at BSU I worked across many platforms and covered every sport at Ball State.  I was an anchor on the emmy-nominated and award winning show “Cardinal Sports Live,” a live weekly 30-minute show produced entirely by students.  I also served as the sports director for the student radio station WCRD-FM.  I was lucky to cover many exciting events including a 12-0 football season and the women’s basketball team’s run to the NCAA tournament defeating Tennessee.

I am thankful for all the opportunities that I have had such as interning at WKEF/WRGT-TV in Dayton.   I also spent a summer going to Columbus Crew games to work more on the radio and television play-by-play side of sports.

I love any and all sports.  I grew up playing soccer and that developed into a passion for all sports.  I have been lucky to travel not only across the country but abroad as well.  I was born in Springfield, Virginia from there my family moved around.  Before moving to Ohio I was across the pond in England.

If you see me out feel free to talk to me about anything or just say hi.  I am so happy to be working here and covering anything and everything sports related.
