Publisher Comments:

Written by a veteran Associated Press sports writer, this handbook arms aspiring and working sports reporters, broadcasters, and photographers with exactly what they need to know to make it to the top in the glamorous and exciting world of sports journalism. With the help of dozens of fascinating and instructive quotes and war stories, contributed by heavy hitters like Dave Goldberg, Jim Litke, Alan Robinson, Joan Ryan, and other top AP sports reporters, the book tutors readers in the core techniques and methodology of sports writing, while at the same time exploring the important professional aspects of the business: how to get started and make a name for yourself; local, national, and feature writing; how the Internet is changing the face of sports writing; and where the business is headed over the next decade.

Synopsis:

Whether it's boxing or baseball, hockey or horse racing, a paragraph in a small local paper or a spread in a national publication, this expert book will help you meet the challenge of bringing sports to vivid life with style, confidence, wit, and skill. Beautifully illustrated with dozens of dynamic action photographs, "The Associated Press Sports Writing Handbook "also will inform you about the future of the business­ ­ and help you decide your place in it.
