July 22, 2021 — Just Women’s Sports, the fastest growing media platform for women’s sports, has named sports industry veteran Ben Osborne as Head of Content. Osborne, who will report to JWS Founder and CEO Haley Rosen, will oversee all digital, social, and editorial content for JWS as it continues its rapid expansion.
Osborne brings more than 25 years of experience to Just Women’s Sports, including writing for the likes of The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Washington Post as well as tenures as the Editor-in-Chief at Bleacher Report and SLAM. Most recently, he served as Senior Features Editor at FOX Sports Digital. In addition to traditional sports media coverage, Ben is well-versed in music, pop culture, and especially sneakers, having edited the 2014 book, SLAM KICKS: Basketball Sneakers that Changed the Game.
“We couldn’t be more excited to add Ben to the Just Women’s Sports team,” said Rosen. “He truly understands our vision as a company and has vital experience that will help bring us to the next level as we work to change the game for women’s sports coverage and deliver the best product possible to a highly engaged, and previously underserved audience.”
“I’ve been a fan of Just Women’s Sports from day one, and can’t wait to get started with this incredible team,” said Osborne. “I’m inspired by what Haley has created in such a short period of time and look forward to putting our foot on the gas as we expand our premium content offerings to cover all of the facets of women’s sports in the ways these fans and athletes deserve.”
Launched in 2020 by Rosen, Just Women’s Sports provides news and analysis of women’s sports through exclusive interviews, podcasts, videos, and other media content, and has quickly grown a passionate audience of fans, followers, and listeners. In addition to its Just Women’s Sports podcast hosted by USWNT star Kelley O’Hara, JWS recently launched Snacks, a podcast co-hosted by USWNT stars Sam Mewis and Lynn Williams, and is home to “Tea with A & Phee,” the popular podcast hosted by 2020 WNBA MVP A’ja Wilson and 2019 WNBA Rookie of the Year Napheesa Collier. Earlier this year, JWS also featured Off the Ball hosted by Olympian and NWSL star Ali Riley, and also created The Soccer Show, a first-of-its-kind digital weekly highlights-driven show covering the FA Women’s Super League (FA WSL) through an exclusive premium content partnership with Ata Football.
In May, Just Women’s Sports announced it had raised $3.5 million in seed funding, led by Will Ventures with participation from Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s Thirty Five Ventures, Drive by DraftKings, OVO Fund, Supernode Global as well as an all-star roster of women’s sports superstars including Elena Delle Donne, Hilary Knight, Sam Mewis, Kelley O’Hara and Arike Ogunbowale.
