Worth reading: Nieman Reports issue on beats
Nieman Reports always has some good stuff, but this winter issue is one of the better ones. It focuses on beats, especially how things are changing in the digital age.
For all those who want to go into sports reporting, I especially recommend the section on the sports beat and most especially these two:
- David Kindred: The sports beat: A digital reporting mix - with exhaustion built in
- Lindsay Jones: The sports tweet: New routines on an old beat
- Malcolm Moran: It's a brand-new ballgame -- for sports reporters
