Final Project

March 24, 2010

For my final project I want to do a profile on Chris Forsberg of ESPN Boston. Forsberg used to be a roving internet/blog/video type guy for boston.com, largely with their high school sports coverage, but some with the Red Sox, Patriots, and Celtics too.

Now he’s at ESPN Boston, where he’s covering mostly the Celtics. It gives him the opportunity to do lots of internet chats on ESPN.com, post videos and pictures to his active Twitter feed, as well as write and break news for the ESPN Boston website. I think he’s one of the leading new-media guys in and around Boston sports, so I think he’d make a good centerpiece along those lines.

In addition to Forsberg, I could talk to some of the other new-media types around the Boston sports scene, including his boston.com replacement at The Globe, Zuri Berry.

I think it’d give insight into being a sports journalist in this brave new media world, since these types are at the forefront of Boston and Boston is arguably the most competitive sports journalism market in the country, especially concerning new media, with boston.com and ESPN Boston going toe to toe with the many other online outlets, like individual blogs and sites like Barstool Sports.
