From massive layoffs at ESPN to Fox Sports' recent decision to axe its writers in favor of an all video site, it's safe to say that the sports world has been no exception to the tectonic shifts in the wider journalism world.

What are some of the unintended consequences of this reshaping of the sports media landscape?
To explore these questions, we talked to the Boston Globe's Chad Finn, who covers these changes for a living and lives them himself.
