John Eisenberg grew up with books in his hands – his first summer job was at his mother’s bookstore in his hometown of Dallas, Texas. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, he wrote for newspapers for almost three decades, mostly as a sports columnist at The Baltimore Sun covering major events while also paying attention to his hometown teams – the Baltimore Ravens, Baltimore Orioles, and Maryland Terrapins. Along the way he wrote 3,000 columns and won more than 20 awards, including several first-places in the prestigious Associated Press Sports Editors contest.

More recently he has continued to write daily about sports in Baltimore, first at csnbaltimore.com and now at baltimoreravens.com.

Historic sports moments that John has witnessed include Cal Ripken’s 2,131st straight game in 1995, Tiger Woods’ barrier-busting triumph at the 1997 Masters, Michael Jordan’s career-ending buzzer-beater against Utah in 1998, and the Ravens’ improbable Super Bowl triumph in January 2001. Before working in Baltimore he spent five years with the Dallas Times Herald, where he covered high school sports and the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks.

John lives in Towson, Maryland, with his wife, Mary Wynne. They have two children: Anna, a graduate of the University of Maryland who now works as a media designer in the Washington D.C. area; and Wick, a senior at St. Mary's College of Maryland.

He has also written for Sports Illustrated, Smithsonian Magazine, and Details, and taught an upper-level sports journalism class at Towson University.
