Sports broadcasting and sports journalism positions have traditionally been held by men. Yet, these male-dominated fields are starting to be redefined by women who have a love of sports and the desire to report on sports-related topics and sporting events. In the world of sports journalism, there are a growing number of jobs for both men and women thanks to the growth of online radio, television, social media and blogs. The Sports Journalism and Broadcasting Institute for Teens at Hofstra Continuing Education is helping to prepare the next generation of sports journalists and broadcasters.
To help support the goals and inspirations of girls wanting careers in sports journalism, the Sports Journalism and Broadcasting Institute offers an “Introduction to Sports Journalism for Young Women.” Designed specifically for girls ages 12-18, the course explores the fundamentals of sports broadcasting, including presenting, announcing, interviewing, research and writing, and overall professional presence.
Instructors with Real-World Experience
At the Institute, we’re especially excited to be introducing two new instructors to our team who will certainly help teach, guide and inspire female students, as well as male students in the program.
They join our team of seasoned broadcasters who are helping students improve their communicating and writing skills to guide them on their path toward a career in sports journalism.
