Sean O'Donnell's insight:

7. "The avid sports fan taking in his morning coffee with three sports sections and a few minutes of sports radio is rapidly disappearing. Taking his place is the sports media junkie accessing multiple platforms simultaneously and demanding coverage even faster than that."

 

8.  The way a consumer accesses his sports is changing along with the way it is distributed.   Different forms of multimedia and social media are replacing the older ways like tv and radio.  There are added responsibilities for reporters.

 

9.  Some people do not accept these changes but they are the exception.  Newspapers have adapted by downsizing sports departments.  They have also made game recaps available online shortly after the game rather than the next morning.  

 

10. “Let's be clear -- electronic media are replacing printed sports pages, not adding value to them,” Sheets said. “The content of print pages is many hours old when it arrives in readers' hands and may contain nuggets of forward-thinking reporting but remains well behind the breaking wave of news.”
