Garbage Time with Katie Nolan on FS1 highlighted the AWSM@MSU chapter, by having the group’s photo up on her show! She opened her discussion by mentioning how proud she was to meet young professionals going into sports media, such as MSU’s AWSM students.
So yes, your eyes were not deceiving you! It was MSU’s Sports Journalism students on FS1!
MSU Sports Journalism congratulates the Association for Women in Sports Media chapter at Michigan State for a huge accomplishment – winning the first Chapter of the Year award for MSU!
The AWSM@MSU chapter, led by senior Hanna Sprague, was honored at the 2016 AWSM convention in Miami at the end of July. Nine student members, along with chapter faculty advisors Lori Anne Dickerson and Joanne Gerstner were in Miami to pick up the award.
The MSU group learned a lot from the convention experience, and want to thank MSU JRN alumna Karen Wall Bush for being their amazing professional mentor, and to MSU JRN alumni Rick Gosselin for his generous donation to help send so many students to the convention.
Go Green! Go White! GO MSU SPORTS JRN!
The first MSU Sports Journalism is making some news in Rome, as the 22 students made a strong positive impression on veteran journalist John Henderson.
He wrote this in his blog, after meeting with MSU students to discuss his career at the Denver Post:
“I’ve spoken to journalism classes at numerous colleges. I can usually tell the quality of students by the quality of questions. Michigan State’s students get it. They asked how Italy has changed me. They asked what was the most memorable sports event I ever covered in the U.S. They asked what I thought of the direction of writing in American journalism.”
It has been a fantastic opening week for MSU Sports JRN’s first Study Abroad. A group of 22 is in Paris, and went to the French Open, Eurosport, toured Ile de la Cite, and heard from MSU JRN alumna/Indy Star Columnist Suzette Hackney.
Next week – the New York Times and more on tap!
but yeah, some amazing things are happening with Sports Journalism at MSU! Thanks to CAS for profiling our program and our fantastic students and faculty. Also read about Professor Gerstner’s fellowship in Zurich to study neuroscience and sports.
