NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER 2006

Lynn Hoppes: With his love affair for the NBA and media in general, I decided to ask Mark Cuban what he thought of newspapers sports sections. Boy, it was pretty telling. The basic question was, "What do you think of today's newspapers sports sections?" He jumped onto his soapbox. (Dec. 1)


Lynn Hoppes: Greg Bowers of the Columbia Missourian posed the question about the future of the agate page. His newspaper was contemplating the move. I was fascinated by the thought, so I decided to ask several sports sections about the agate page. (Dec. 2)


Lynn Hoppes: Here's the continuation of what sports editors think about the future of the agate page. (Dec. 3)


Doug Roberson: As newspapers become more consolidated into larger corporations, several sports editors were asked what are/have been the benefits and drawbacks to sharing their content with other newspapers? (Dec. 4)


Larry Vaught: While budgetary concerns often make it difficult, if not impossible, for small paper sports editors to attend the national convention, it is often just as difficult for a small paper sports editor to attend a regional meeting. (Dec. 5)


Doug Roberson: On the heels of the awards season in Major League Baseball, and as talk of who should win what heats up in all levels of football, sports editors around the country were asked about their awards policies. (Dec. 6)


Toby Carrig: Enterprise, enterprise, enterprise. Sports editors think about it often enough, and Tim Wheatley has done something about it at The Baltimore Sun. (Dec. 7)


Toby Carrig: A quick roundup of moves. (Dec. 8)


The Dow Jones Newspaper Fund has openings for six newspapers to participate in its 2007 sports copy editing internship program. (Dec. 9)


Bill Speros: Mark Faller and his staff at the Arizona Republic have used both print and on-line to upgrade their coverage in the Valley of the Sun. (Dec. 10)


Bill Speros: In the "Land of Steady Habits," one major constant is the state's passion for all things basketball. (Dec. 11)


Bill Speros: High school football fans who read The Clarion-Ledger are hearing the latest news of their favorite players these days, too. (Dec. 12)


Bill Speros: Florida remains a football hotbed, even though fans of most of the state's college and pro teams would beg to differ these days. While teams like Florida State, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the University of Miami have had nightmare seasons in 2006, the Tampa Tribune continues to score points with its upgraded coverage of high school football both on-line and in print. (Dec. 13)


Bill Speros: Our Magic Preview section spun off a 'play time is over' theme. With the team's youth and presumed preseason enthusiasm, we thought that to be a natural fit for its 18th season. (Dec. 14)


Joe Sullivan: The Globe put together a project called "One Fall Day: College football in America" on Sunday, Oct. 15. (Dec. 15)


Bill Speros: The Baltimore Ravens are again using defense to make another run at the Super Bowl this season. The Baltimore Sun, meanwhile, has changed its gameplan. The Sun has adopted a new-look offense for its Gameday section, which runs each day after the Ravens play. The Sun no longer starts traditional game stories on the Gameday section fronts. (Dec. 16)


Mike Kellams: After an 11-5 finish in 2005 with the prospects to be an NFC favorite this year, there was no question that we would figure out a way to bring back game-coverage special sections for the Chicago Bears, even in the world of shrinking newshole. It's simply one of our best-read products. The difference this year? No game story. Yep. You read that right. (Dec. 17)


Jennifer Scroggins: During the regular high school football season, the Cincinnati Enquirer spent five Friday's with football coaches in Ohio and Kentucky. The coaches were wired and filmed. (Dec. 18)


Joe Sullivan: It is often said that luck is when preparation meets opportunity. That may be the case, but sometimes you still need a bit of luck. So it was for the Globe when Red Auerbach passed away on the night of Oct. 28. (Dec. 19)


Michael A. Anastasi: The Whitehorse project was conceived two years ago shortly after my arrival in Salt Lake City and the appointment of Lya Wodraska as our enterprise/investigative reporter. (Dec. 20)


A look around the regions, including the Atlantic Coast, where the Daily Press in Newport News, Va., launched several new initiatives on its website (video, high school blog and more). Also news from the Northeast Region. (Dec. 21)


A look around the regions, including the Southwest, where the Fort Worth Star-Telegram concluded a successful football season of DFWVarsity.com. Also news from the Northwest and West regions. (Dec. 22)


Patricia Mays has been promoted to Sports Editor of The Press-Enterprise in Riverside, Calif. Mays has been with The PE since June 2005. (Dec. 23)


The issues are very tired and worn. It's the technology that has changed everything. So goes the latest collision of thoughts over copyright and trademark, news value and access. And best of all, it's all about money neither side has quite figured out how to make yet. (Dec. 24)


Jim Jenks: From Philadelpia to San Jose and everywhere in between, our business is being reshaped in a monumental reorganization. Journalism has taken a back seat to business bottom lines. (Dec. 25)


Leon Carter: On the day after the Giants suffered a devastating loss to the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 26 – leaving many to wonder why we ever had considered this team a Super Bowl contender at the start of the season – we wanted to do something special on the back page. (Dec. 26)


Hank Winnicki: Who was more important to New York sports, Mark Messier or Phil Simms? Walt Frazier or Phil Rizzuto? Tiki Barber, Cleon Jones or Paul O'Neill? That was the idea behind Newsday's recent six-page Sunday piece, "The Best New York Athletes by Uniform Number." It gave readers a chance to argue with a whole new set of ground rules. (Dec. 27)


Larry Starks: On a hot June night in St. Louis, there are few things better than popping open a cold one – unless you're popping open "free" cold ones and then taking a tour of the brewery at which the cold ones are made. That will part of the festivities in St. Louis. (Dec. 28)


Sandy Rosenbush: It has been a very good year for the Sports Journalism Institute. (Dec. 29)


Important information and details about the 2007 APSE Judging Convention scheduled for Feb. 24-28 in Long Beach, Calif. (Dec. 30)


Lynn Hoppes: It's the last day of the year, so I'm going to make some New Year's resolutions for myself. Then I'm going to give you the opportunity to talk about your goals for 2007. (Dec. 31)
