Northeast Region of Associated Press Sports Editors to Meet at Newhouse April 11
The annual meeting of the Northeast Region of Associated Press Sports Editors will be held Monday, April 11, at the Newhouse School at Syracuse University in collaboration with the Newhouse Sports Media Center.
Syracuse University students, faculty and staff are invited to attend one or more of a series of panel discussions that will be held in the Joyce Hergenhan Auditorium in Newhouse 3.
10-11:15 a.m.: How to Dominate Coverage of Your Town’s Major Beat
In Buffalo, that means the NFL and the Buffalo Bills. In Syracuse, it’s Orange football and basketball. In many towns, it’s the prep scene. And in all places, it means digitally and in print. Lisa Wilson of The Buffalo News will lead the conversation.
11:30 a.m.-12:45 p.m.: Ring in an Olympic Year
Pennant races and NFL camps will be interrupted this summer by the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. How The New York Times covers those two weeks in August will be different from how The Boston Globe handles it, and that will be different from The Hartford Courant’s approach. Discover ways you can “own” Olympic coverage in your market. Joe Sullivan of The Globe will moderate.
1:45-3 p.m.: Working With Today’s Realities
The cutbacks that hit medium and larger news organizations over the last decade are hitting the smaller papers now. How do shops of all sizes prioritize and how do they execute their plans? Greg Brownell, sports editor at The Post-Star in Glens Falls, N.Y., will chair the panel and discuss how his paper has “gone through the mother of all changes” in its coverage of high school sports. If you’re not facing it now, you’ll face it in the future.
3:15-4:30 p.m.: The Newest Digital Tools
Did you just blink? You missed another new application that you could use for your web site and your social media campaign. Matt Pepin of BostonGlobe.com will provide some updates.
