Learn new media skills ASAP


Storytelling and reporting are still the heart of sports journalism. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t learn other skills as well. As I’ve mentioned before, all sports journalists should start a blog to learn new media skills. Shoot, edit and post both video and audio. You might even sign up for Facebook and Twitter.

One more thing: Do not attend a college where you cannot enhance these skills either in the class room or for student media. Basic new media skills are not longer merely a suggestion.

Here are a few recent stories offering more insights into new media skills:
