JOSE M. ROMERO
Owner/operator, managing editor
Jose helped establish the predecessor to Somos Sports, The Sporting Nation, which became an outlet for stories about Latinos in sports from the perspective of American-born, generations-deep journalism professionals. It’s with that in mind that Somos Sports was established.
Jose, from the Portland area now living in South Phoenix, has 20-plus years of experience in sports journalism and now teaches the subject to students at Arizona State University’s Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. He’s covered Super Bowls, all-star games, playoff games, every major sport in the U.S, pro sports, college sports, high school sports and the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Formerly with the Seattle Times, Jose is now a top freelancer for the Associated Press, ESPN and Major League Soccer. He’s also a proud father of three who looks forward to seeing more of the world besides North America, Italy, Paris, London and greater Sydney, Australia.

Okay, not really masses.
