Which brand is Dhoni endorsing? How long did Sania stay in the transit airport? Who are the members in the team selected for the next world cup? Will Saina will the next badminton tournament? Which sports star will be the next brand ambassador for the most popular sports shoes?
These are the questions you will be investigating and answering as a sports journalist.
Sports and journalism feels weird as a combination when we hear it for the first time but it makes a great career. Those of you who enjoy writing and sports equally can make a great career in sports journalism.
At college what should I do to prepare for this career?
1. Follow sports like you breath
2. Practice writing everyday
3. Promote or join a sports magazine at college.
4. Join an internship programme where both are possible.
5. Read a lot about sports and do not miss any opportunity to meet a sport’s celebrity.
