Newspaper readers in the late 1800s got sports updates from the “Sporting Editors” of their local papers. Over the next century, newspaper sports sections came into their glory days, with articles bylined by famed sports columnists and cartoonists. The 1980s saw the advent of USA TODAY’s national section, all-sports radio and the growing popularity and reach of ESPN. Today, 24/7 sports coverage is right at our fingertips, available through Internet news sites and social media. Over the last 150 years, the “what” and “how” of our sports reporting has changed dramatically.
Join us for two panel discussions with sports cartoonists, columnists and editors about the “glory moments” of sports sections, where sports journalism stands today, and what we can expect in the future.
