Welcome to the Cross The Line website. I am Carlos Smith an up and coming journalist from Jonesville,SC. I am a graduate from the University of South Carolina Upstate. During my time in college i spent time as an intern covering the Carolina Panthers, Charlotte Hornets, ACC Media Day, high school football, and many other sporting events. After college I had a hard time finding a job in journalism. I felt as if no one would give me a chance to prove myself.
Sometimes hearing the word no can be a blessing in disguise. It forced me to tap into my resources and do what I've known all along which is work hard. I finally got to the point where I wanted to be in control of my own opportunity. I wanted to make sure that after every single interview it was no doubt I was one of the best journalist in the business. The Cross The Line Podcast is an outlet where mentors, business owners, and athletes share their success stories as well as talk sports. The stories are here to help inspire people from all over. This has been an amazing journey filled with wonderful people helping who have helped me to grow as man.
