Ian Rapoport is an NFL Network Insider for the National Football League. He works as a sportswriter, expert, and television analyst who primarily covers the sport of professional football. Ian joined the NFL Network in 2012 and is known for reporting breaking information via his Twitter account from league and team personnel.
In 2004, Ian started his career for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger covering the Mississippi State Bulldogs. Following this, Ian went to The Birmingham News covering the Alabama Crimson Tide football, basketball, baseball and Nick Saban. His last stop before the NFL Network was the Boston Herald where he worked as the Patriots beat reporter and covered all aspects of the team and Bill Belichick.
Ian grew up in Westchester County, New York, and attended Columbia University majoring in history. Outside of work, his interests include hosting his RapSheet and Friends podcast, golf, 5 am workouts, 90’s hip-hop, and spending time with his beautiful wife Leah and two sons, Max and Jude.
If you aren’t following him on Twitter with his other 4 million followers, you can do so here, or you can catch him almost daily on NFL Network.
Off Hours Bourbon is made for afternoon relaxations and late night convos as it dispels the idea that you have to wear a suit to drink a glass of Bourbon or that it can only be enjoyed poured over rocks at the end of the day. The award-winning liquid is aged in American white oak barrels for over 5 years. Tasting notes include aromas of creamy vanilla, hint of nutmeg and toasted pecans, rich notes of cinnamon and a silky finish of lingering honey.
