From USC Annenberg to Dodgers Social Media Coordinator

He’s 23-years-old. And now that LA Weekly Dodgers blogger Howard Cole has profiled Josh Tucker, many more fans today know the name of the person pulling the team’s Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and Instagram strings.

Tucker graduated from USC Annenberg in 2011 and admits that he realizes every day how much of a dream job his self-described “digital cheerleader” responsibilities are. It all started on campus:

Tucker credits a sports public relations class, taught by Josh Rawitch, then the VP of communications for the Dodgers, and Jeff Moeller, of LA Kings PR, while at USC, not only for the knowledge he gained but for connecting with Rawitch, who eventually helped with a foot in Dodgers’ door.

Tucker says he works closely with both MLB and Dodgers colleagues. He singles out on the former side Arturo Pardavila and Keiko Uraguchi, and on the latter, Joe Jareck, Jon Chapper, Keira Hertz and Cat Belanger. When not @Dodgers, Tucker can be found on Twitter @joshbtucker.
