The Future Of Sports Journalism

The Future Of Sports Journalism

Kojo sits down with veteran sports journalist Dave McKenna and former Washington Post sports editor George Solomon to explore the future of the sports journalism business.

Sports media is a billion dollar industry and few media companies command as wide an audience or as hefty a profit. But during the course of the past year, several stories have triggered questions about the relationships between the journalistic organizations that cover sports and the sports industry itself -- including ESPN's recent pulling out of a documentary series about concussions and football. Join us as Kojo explores the future of sports journalism.

Guests

George Solomon

Columnist and former Sports Editor, The Washington Post; Shirley Povich Professor, Phillip Merrill College of Journalism, University of Maryland; also former ESPN Ombudsman

Dave McKenna

Sports Writer; Former "Cheap Seats" Columnist, Washington City Paper
