Sports Journalism is a comprehensive guide to the purpose, principles and practice of this unique profession. Now in a fully revised and updated second edition, including important new material on social media and the rise of on-line journalism, this is still the only book to explore the fundamentals of sports reporting across every media platform.

Combining an introduction to practical skills, contextual discussion of the changing media environment, and important case studies, including the ground-breaking story of Lance Armstrong, the book covers key topics such as:

essential relationships in sports journalism - networking and the Sports Desk

print journalism for magazines, tabloids, broadsheets and the internet

live action - news, radio and television sports journalism

effective research - managing and accessing sources, information, statistics

practical skills for managing schedules and meeting deadlines

working with sports agents and PR professionals

getting the best from press conferences and interviews.

Laced with revealing anecdotes from the author's own thirty years' experience of domestic and international sport journalism, and including questions in each chapter to encourage critical reflection and notes on further reading, Sports Journalism is the ultimate insider's guide and an invaluable student companion.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This text would be best used by those already with an understanding of journalism practices and rules. ... It could also serve as a strong second text in a course and certainly leaves ample opportunity for class discussion about chapter readings. The text would appeal most strongly to those who regularly read sports news and publications and are prepared to take a deeper dive into the discipline."

Keith Strudler, Marist College, USA, International Journal of Sport Communication, 2015, 8, 519 -521.
