We all know that technology is changing the media and the information that we receive as consumers. Even the least tech savvy or media minded person knows that the influence of blogs, podcasts and social networking is revolutionizing the way we receive our news. It’s no longer just in black and white or on at 5 and 11 p.m., but available to all of us by a click of a mouse, a tap of a satellite radio dial or flip of the remote control.
Sports media has felt the effect of the changing journalistic tide and is jumping on the wave. This blog is going to explore the way newspapers, radio stations, local news, cable networks (man, there will be a lot of talk about the juggernaut that is ESPN) and all the mediums that fall in-between, are using new technologies to change the way sports are covered and delivered to the masses. Of course, there will also be my view on all of the latest news and happenings in the ever-changing world of sports. Sometimes it can get a bit heated so watch out!
This is a great time to discuss sports and the media and if you’re a Boston fan (Go Pats!) it’s even better. So put your helmet on, it’s time to play!
