Phil Andrews’ book Sports Journalism is a must-have for students studying the business. It is detailed, readable, and up-to-date including plenty of information and tips on exploring the potential of online sports journalism. Essential reading on my course.
Sports journalism: A Practical Introduction provides budding sports journalists with an ideal guide to the world of sports journalism. This simple to read and informative guide takes the reader on a detailed, practical and up-to-date journey through the various elements of practical sports journalism, from writing, to commentary and social networking.
Nine years have elapsed since this book was first published – and in that period Sports Journalism has been transformed by the growth of social media and the ever-increasing influence of PR. This latest edition recognises that, with references to the ‘new age’ underpinned by the traditional crafts and techniques. It is invaluable to those studying Sports Journalism, and for those wanting to brush-up on their skills.
A highly engaging, relevant and up-to-date overview of the essential elements of sports journalism. The book contains excellent tasks and strong examples of work across a variety of platforms. It is a key text for my Sports Journalism degree and I also use it for the sport module in the University of Gloucestershire's Journalism degree.
Well written. Provides explanations and very good examples
Essential supporting text for our new Sports Journalism degree course.
Relevant and accessible - reflecting growth of digital and social media within the industry. The new chapters on working as a freelance and the relationship between Sports Journalism and Sports PR are particularly valuable.
