FASHION AN INDEPENDENT SUPPLEMENT BY MIA MEDIA & COMMUNICATIONS GROUP Miami TV Sports Reporter Bats a Thousand with Fashion Blog By Kalen Johnson He has interviewed heavy hitters from LeBron James to former first lady Michelle Obama. He’s excelled in journalism, named “Best Sportscaster” last year by Miami New Times readers. And WSVN Channel 7 sports reporter Donovan Campbell does it all while dressed to the nines. Now Campbell is opening his closet and sharing his sense of style with his own fashion blog: www.dappersportscaster.com. Campbell said he launched the blog after noticing the lack of male bloggers in South Florida. That’s when he decided to take his passion for fashion to the next level. “I feel there was a need for it, especially for the youth who feel as if they have to keep up with the Joneses. I think everyone likes a man in a nice suit,” said Campbell. The blog gives readers an inside view on Campbell’s favorite fashion looks while providing advice and highlighting his debonair suits,upscale streetwear and flashy footwear. When asked to describe his swag in five words Campbell said, “I can be flashy, neat, edgy, eloquent and of course, dapper.” Dubbing himself the “Best Dressed Man on TV,” Campbell covers all of the major sporting events in South Florida, while donning nothing less than the finest suits and accessories. At the age of 7, he developed a passion for fashion and an appreciation for the finer things in life. Campbell’s favorite brand for custom-measured suits is Musika Frere, a New York City based brand that specializes in luxury menswear. One thing for certain is that Campbell doesn’t let his pieces wear him, he wears his pieces. “I believe you don’t have to have a custom suit to be fly,” said Campbell. “There is no boundary in fashion, if you like something wear it. The suit doesn’t make the man, the man makes the suit.” BB17
