Do you think there is a niche to be found in covering high school sports as a sports journalist? I have an internship next fall to cover all high school athletics at my high school in town and report on, attend, and write columns about the games. Can I find success in that market? I also am lucky enough to have some family connections at ESPN, so I'm sort of on the fence as to which direction to go?
I LOVE the Amanda Pugliese networking Ted Talk
As a management major/PR minor, I’m actually taking sports management and sports public relations next semester. I never really thought about a position at ESPN or any sports-related institute, but I was curious to know if any of you were familiar with what is entailed in a management position at such companies?
Thank you very much for all of the advise!
