Patrick S. Washburn and Chris Lamb tell the full story of the past, the present, and to a degree, the future of American sports journalism. Sports Journalism chronicles how and why technology, religion, social movements, immigration, racism, sexism, social media, athletes, and sportswriters and broadcasters changed sports as well as how sports are covered and how news about sports are presented and disseminated. One of the influential factors in sports coverage is the upswing in the number of women sports reporters in the last 40 years. Sports Journalism also examines the ethics of sports journalism, how sports coverage frequently has differed from that of non-sports news, and how the internet has spawned a set of new ethical issues.

The book is published by University of Nebraska Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.

“Not only reveals the story of American sports journalism but also illuminates the larger challenges that journalism as a whole will certainly face in the future.” (David Abrahamson, Northwestern University)

“This is the most dynamic and complete history of sports journalism that I have ever read.” (Robert Bellamy, Duquesne University)
