My name is Dr. Daniel Herman Krier. In May 2017, I completed the doctoral program of Information and Media at Michigan State University. My research focuses on the consumption of sports media and makes predictions based on the driving forces motivating watching and following sports and sports media. The findings my research produces are useful from a cultural, marketing, and sports management prospective. I also study gender differences in the consumption of sports media, focusing on the different ways in which males & females engage with sports media.
