Sports Journalism will take a look at the history of covering sports, from the “'golden age” of
sports writing to today. Special emphasis will be placed on the evolution of ESPN and similar
sports networks and how sports coverage changed from highlight clips to half hour shows.
The class also will cover 'new media' coverage of sports on the web and on social media sites
and the development of 'bloggers' and other web-based writers as accredited media.
