GG11: Rochester Post-Bulletin sportswriter Ben Pherson talks MSHSL state wrestling

phersonEpisode 11 of The Guillotine Grapevine features one of the top wrestling journalists in the country, Ben Pherson from the Rochester Post-Bulletin.

Ben talks about how he gets the right stories to tell in the paper and how he’s taken his passion for wrestling and worked it into his day-to-day job at the paper. Ben’s got an interesting backstory, but the Minnesota State Championships have been a big part of it throughout his career.
