WE ARE BACK!

Yes, yes, yes! Classes may be online, and a lot of us are all around Michigan and the country…but MSU Sports JRN is back in effect for 2020-21 school year. What YOU can do to get involved: Network: talk to Profs. Gerstner and Dickerson about tapping into MSU Sports JRN’s huge network of amazing alumni….

To our 2020 grads…LOVE

We are sending a massive shout out of love, best wishes and pride to our 2020 Sports JRN minor graduates. We are so proud of you. You worked hard, you showed up big for the Spartan Sports Report, BTNu, The State News, IMPACT, MSU Athletic Communications, Spartan Vision, and many other forms of outside work….

We have a change in programming…(no kidding)

Hey Sports JRN family… So you’re home. You’re doing classes online. Sports are canceled. You’re wondering what’s next. We know. But we’re here to tell you that the world will come back online, sports will be played (hopefully soon), and we will all get back to the things we love in sports journalism. In the…

MAKING BTNu HISTORY

Michigan State Sports JRN students set a new standard over the Feb. 21-22 weekend, by becoming the first Big Ten students to do live sportscasts AND live in-studio interviews during Big Ten Network sports broadcasts. The Spartan Sports Report – in partnership with MSU’s Big Ten Student U – went live from the Spartan Newsroom…

Oh hey, it’s August…time to plan ahead for the FUTURE

Yeah, we know. Summer went fast. Hopefully you filled it with some fun, some work, some networking, and some making you the best you can be. Putting some mental Sports JRN post-its up so you can plan ahead; YES – there will be a Sports JRN Education Abroad class to Paris and Rome in summer…

Time to think about 2019-20!

(No, really!) We’re not trying to speed up time, but it is time to register for classes for next school year. So we wanted to drop a little thought on you: the Sports Journalism Education Abroad class to Paris and Rome is a GO for Summer 2020. Which means, if you are an MSU student,…

And another one!

We are rolling through 2019, with more amazing things happening for our students and faculty. Congratulations to our Sports JRN students who recently won Michigan Association of Broadcasters, Michigan Press Association and Broadcast Education Association contests.

We have more than 40 students picking the minor – in only one semester. If you are interested, read up! We had another successful Sports Journalism Education Abroad class, to…

Going to work…

MSU Sports Journalism loves to do real world opportunities at every turn, so it was a no-brainer that we HAD to cover the Pistons-Cavaliers game at the Breslin Center on Oct. 12. Seven MSU Sports Journalism students, plus former NBA beat writer/Prof. Joanne Gerstner, went through pre-game interviews; met with Detroit Free Press beat writer…

Doing the real world…

Are you feeling in the swing of things again? We’re more than a month into classes, and it feels like everybody is in a good groove. Some great stuff to let the world know about! Our new content provider relationship with MSU Athletics and JRN418 just produced its first stories! We are doing features on…

Big new stuff coming this fall!

The minor takes effect for the Fall 2018 semester, and those who successfully complete the requirements…

Are you preparing for the future?

Sounds like a serious question, especially in the heat of the summer! But we’re not joking. What are YOU doing to prepare yourself for the future? It’s a question you should be asking yourself as an incoming freshman, a sophomore/junior getting into the seriousness of work, or as a senior looking toward graduation…or any time…
