Tim Franklin Leaving National Sports Journalism Center

Tim Franklin is leaving his role as the director of the National Sports Journalism Center at the Indiana University School of Journalism.

Franklin will join Bloomberg News as an editor-at-large in the Washington Bureau. He starts Aug. 8.

IU professor Dan Drew will serve as the interim director while the school begins a national search in August. Franklin will join the National Advisory Board in order to stay involved with the program.

“Helping to launch the National Sports Journalism Center at IU, an institution that I care deeply about, was one of the most challenging but rewarding things that I’ve ever done,” Franklin said. “It’s not at all easy for me to leave the school or the students, but I do so knowing that the center is now firmly established as one of the best – if not the best – sports journalisms program in America.”

What Does the World Think of the Super Bowl?


Well, that’s certainly one interpretation.

Merrill Hoge to "Grill" Ben Roethlisberger

The NFL’s “lone dominant team will get a little better this weekend when star quarterback Ben Roethlisberger returns from a four-game suspension related to his poor conduct.

Before the game, ESPN will air an interview between the Steelers man and Merril Hoge on Sunday NFL Countdown. In the segment, the quarterback “discusses his suspension and lessons learned in a sit-down interview.”

It’s billed as “Ben Roethlisberger unplugged” but don’t expect anything other than softballs.

Hoge, a former Steelers running back who nearly died after suffering a concussion, won’t ask “Ben” any tough questions. He can’t. ESPN needs to have a good relationship with the players; otherwise they won’t appear. (It’s not like there is any shortage of other networks that would kill to talk to the QB.) Hoge will ask what Roethlisberger learned, the player will ruminate and offer some cliched answers, and we’ll be done.

Sounds like fun.
