A visit to the SEC to talk about B/R’s advanced educational programs
I’ll be on the road next week in SEC country, so after a post on Monday the B/R Blog will be quiet.
I’ll be visiting journalism programs at the Universities of Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi and Louisiana State. If you’re in Athens, Tuscaloosa, Oxford or Baton Rouge, in that daily order starting Monday, look for me on campus. Let my Twitter feed be your guide. I’m hoping to add another school on Friday.
What I’ll be talking about, aside from Bleacher Report and sports media in general, is B/R’s two educational programs, the Advanced Program in Sports Media, which focuses on writing, and the Advanced Program in Editing and Content Management, which I think is self-explanatory.
The APSM and the APECM are paid, part-time, 12-week programs to which students may telecommute. Bleacher Report hires quite a bit out of both. I think they both represent a great opportunity for advanced journalism students and early-career pros, and I’m looking forward to meeting a bunch of the former across the Southeast.
