High school juniors and seniors who aspire to a career combining sports and journalism have the opportunity to learn from Hall-of-Fame journalist Billy Reed by attending a three-day sports journalism workshop offered August 2-4, 2010, during the NFL Cincinnati Bengals’ annual summer training camp at Georgetown College’s Toyota Stadium and athletics complex.
Reed, now an executive-scholar-in-residence at Georgetown, wrote for Sports Illustrated, The Louisville Courier-Journal and the Lexington Herald-Leader. He has covered and written about most every major sporting event.
The skills development workshop will focus on the basics for covering a sports franchise and includes attendance at Bengals’ practice session and press conferences.
Registration is limited to 15 students. The cost for the three-day non-residential workshop, which includes lunch, is $250 per person. For more information and registration, contact Vice President for Student Life and Dean of Students Todd Gambill at 502-863-8004. A registration form is also available online.
