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.”
