Prior to joining Action in 2022, Sam covered state taxes for Bloomberg, where his coverage of an IRS crackdown on fantasy sports earned him Society of American Business Editors and Writers awards, in business and sports business. His journalism career started at Penn State, where he covered college basketball and hockey for the student paper. He's been betting on sports since the Supreme Court overturned PASPA, mostly losing money on his beloved New York Knicks.
