Tyler Byrum is an associate editor and writer for NBC Sports Washington, helping cover the top sports news in the Washington D.C. region. On the side, Tyler also is a play-by-play announcer for local teams and colleges.
Sports and media are an ever-changing field. Being with NBCSW following graduation in 2016, strategy and priorities change on a near yearly basis. Best practices on social media, an endeavor that companies are constantly facing, change nearly daily. Every day there are new competitors emerging with NBCSW's work as other content creators try to share space. Tyler helps lead a team of digital writers and content miners to continuously remain at the front of important sports issues.
Being adaptable to new challenges is how Tyler looks to remain relevant and valuable to the industry. He learns from what has worked in the past, takes what still has value but adapts it to the needs of the modern sports consumer. That is true of both of his work with NBCSW and as a commentator. All priorities as a member of the media, he believes, should be done to enhance the fan experience of his consumers.
Additionally, Tyler also covers the Washington Mystics, Citi Open, college basketball and the NBA Draft for NBCSW. While at George Mason, Tyler was an avid member of George Mason's Student Media group which helped propel him into the work he is doing today.
