For Charles Bloom, being the Southeastern Conference’s associate commissioner for media relations means that he’s on call 365 days a year — mostly regarding football. He keeps track of what people are saying about the Conference as well as trends and changing rules in the sports world. Bloom also helps promote the conference via the Web site and SEC digital network, and helps oversee television contracts and academic initiatives as well as recognize the achievements of SEC coaches and student athletes.

As Bloom tells Amy Jacques, associate editor of Tactics, he developed an interest in sports at an early age. He remembers going to University of Richmond football games as well as local high school games with family and friends while growing up in Virginia.

He’s been involved with sports in some capacity ever since, and has worked for the SEC since 1995 in various roles. Bloom currently serves as president of PRSA’s Alabama Chapter.
