Our panel of sports reporters, editors, bloggers and authors holds no punches in its dissection of sports media and what it takes to break in and get ahead. Sports writing is a genre that can easily go from rote reporting to epic narrative. By homing in on a compelling human interest story or larger cultural or political issues, you can go from being the stats guy to becoming a star reporter. But, with the rise of fan sites, blogs, and podcasts, is it even necessary to work your way up through established channels? And if you are already working in another area of the media, how do you establish your sports cred and get in the game? Our panelists get to the bottom of these questions.
