Sports Media 1 introduces students to the historical and contemporary connections between sport and the media and serves as a foundation for further study in this field. Sport and media have a unique connection, as sport and all forms of media have changed each other and continue to do so. It is impossible to describe sport and media as discreet independant social institutions, rather, as overlapping and corporate organisations. This subject explores prominent sports journalists in history and their reporting style, the impact of television on sports, the contemporary nature of sports journalism, investigative sports journalism and the notion of sports media as the 'toy department' of news. Sports media 1 provides students with knowledge of the complex interrelationship between sport and media, particularly in relation to concepts of gender and culture.
