Sports journalism is a rapidly growing media outlet that focuses on reporting of sports-related topics and sporting events.

Sports journalism's fundamentals include, but are not limited to: researching a topic, interviewing skills, the ability to be organized and prepared to go on the air, and the importance of writing and how to do so for radio and television. Our sports media/journalism pre-collegiate programs are designed to prepare young broadcasters with the basic skill sets they will need to succeed in the television and radio industry.

These seminars include lessons from a professional who has broadcasted on every level and handled all types of stories, from news to sports, and even entertainment.

The ultimate goal of these programs is to get students to be fundamentally sound as they embark on a future in sports journalism and broadcasting.
