Years before Chip Rogers became majority leader in the Georgia Senate, the rising Republican star was known as “Will 'The Winner'” Rogers, advising callers for a fee how to bet against the pointspread on pro and college football. My nine-month investigation - a collaboration between Atlanta Unfiltered and The News Enterprise, a student reporting initiative of Emory College's Journalism Program - reveals how Rogers got started in the industry and how he met the gambling industry entrepreneur who would take a $2.2 million eyesore off his hands two decades later. While Rogers says today that he was nothing more than on-air “talent” reading a script for a client, my follow-up stories show that while serving as a freshman legislator, Rogers regularly oversaw production of promotional mailings that advertised over-the-phone sports handicapping services and an offshore casino.
