Hi! My name is Andrew Oster and you found my bio. I had this vision for New Light Sports in October of 2017 while listening to sports talk radio. I listen to a good amount of sports talk radio for my day-job, which is in the environmental monitoring/regulatory field, and was turned-off by how negative the content and the hosts can be at times. I seriously asked aloud, "Why doesn't anyone cover the uplifting and positive aspects of sports?". Right then, an answer came from my inner guru, "Why don't you?". It struck me like a jolt of electricity. Thus, New Light Sports was conceived.
Starting a media outlet from scratch is something new to me and I'm enjoying the challenges. I enjoy forays into the unknown, into the frontier of things; forging a new way. If there's one thing I do know, it's that quality, authentic heart-centered content will always find a way to shine.
I wanted to expand upon the media outlet side of New Light Sports. I wanted to offer more than the insightful, inspiring, and positive content you’ll find here. Mindful Sports Coaching along with Mindful Sports Workshops and Mindful Sports Retreats will be an avenue to experience and learn this new way in sports. Ways to ‘Live Better Play Better’. So I invite you to join along on this journey as we shine a new light on sports and the reasons we love them.
And maybe one day I'll have a more professional bio photo instead of backcountry selfies.
