Since launching World Soccer Talk in 2005, Harris has played an influential role in shaping how broadcasters deliver the sport by providing in-depth analysis and reviews of the soccer TV coverage. He has interviewed virtually all media executives at the different media giants to stay apprised of changes in OTT and broadcast television while also keeping up with the latest reports and breaking news about key soccer rights acquisitions and the media landscape.

When World Soccer Talk was created, Harris was working full time as an online marketing executive, and it wasn’t until 2013 when he decided to take his passion for soccer into a full-time job. His marketing experience spans over 20 years.

Harris was born and raised in Wales and has been living in Florida since 1984. He is a journalism graduate of Florida Atlantic University and often serves as a soccer media industry expert.
