Subject outline

Sport journalists are required to write a variety of stories for a variety of mediums. In addition to previews and match reports, the sport journalist must be able to write about the politics of sport, report on sports stars involved in judicial or legal hearings, write about the personal lives of sports stars in feature stories and write opinion pieces on issues involving sport and its participants. Print journalists will find themselves being asked to contribute to radio and television broadcasts and this subject will offer further opportunities to become proficient at reporting on those mediums. This subject will build on prior learning of the 'mechanics of journalism,' such as the inverted pyramid; types of sources; and different approaches and techniques, whilst giving the student exposure to realistic settings such as a television live cross or media conference.
