NEWSLETTER FOR JUNE 2007

Lydia Craver: South Florida is no stranger to the madness of March – when the tourists, as well as the sporting events, invade. To give readers (and visitors) an idea of all that the area had to offer, The Miami Herald ran a full-page caldendar/graphic to highlight the month's events. (June 30)


Larry Vaught: Recently the long-time athletics director at Kentucky School for the Deaf retired. We learned of this a few days before he was going to make the announcement. That is the smallest school in our area, but the man has been active as a sports and civic leader in our area for over 25 years and is well respected by all. (June 29)


Randy Beard: On May 23, the Tallahassee Democrat went back in time to do a slice in the life of Deion Sanders, easily Florida State's most famous multi-sport athlete. He went on to prove, of course, that he could play professional football and baseball. But on May 17, 1987, when FSU was still in the Metro Conference, he added track to his college resume. (June 28)


Doug Roberson: The Newport News (Va.) Daily Press is trying to capitalize on local online products that don't exist in our market, we launched an online fishing site recently called dailypress.com/fishingspot(June 27)


Randy Beard: The Tallahassee Democrat did a package of stories on May 11 that looked at current Florida State baseball players from the Tallahassee area. There are five on the team, including pitcher Bryan Henry, who led the nation with 14 wins in the regular season. (June 26)


Doug Roberson: With lots of general-interest NFL Draft news on the wire, and everyone with a version of their own mock draft, the Daily Press decided to go in a different direction with our draft coverage on dailypress.com(June 25)


Toby Carrig: Sports editor Cathy Henkel of the Seattle Times is nearly three-quarters of the way through a four-month sabbatical that had her traveling through 11 states in 55 days. (June 24)


Kim Cooper: The last week of March and the first week of April brought a cresendo of big events to Atlanta. That was reflected in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's coverage. (June 23)


John Cherwa: Understanding the genius of Van McKenzie is much like understanding infinity. Just when you think you've got it all figured out, there's more. (June 22)


Doug Roberson: Reports from seven of the 10 regions, including several items from the Atlantic Coast, Mid-Atlantic and Northeast regions. (June 21)


Lynn Hoppes: There were nine sports sections winning APSE Triple Crowns this year. So how did they do it? They will show you some secrets to their success at Saturday's Sports Roundtable at the APSE Convention. (June 20)


Bill Speros: The Billy Donovan story drove Orlando Sentinel print and orlandosentinel.com on-line readership to spectacular levels and pushed our staff to relentlessly advance this story on a 24-hour news cycle. (June 19)


Rusty Hampton: Since colleges are now breaking the news on football signing day by posting the signee names on their own Web sites, it's getting harder and harder to drive readers to our site. (June 18)


Jorge Rojas: At a meeting at the NABJ Convention in August between APSE representatives and the NABJ Sports Task Force, several ideas were suggested to improve diversity. Here's where we stand on those initiatives. (June 17)


Joe Sullivan: People ARE still reading newspapers. Most of them read the sports section, so a sports section can sell newspapers. Newspapers that make a commitment to marketing will find it pays off, and there will be plenty of examples of that in this workshop. (June 16)


Mort Goldstrom: Asking an ad guy to write something resembling English to a group of writers is very gutsy. Almost as gutsy as my topic. (June 15)


Larry Starks: When the APSE convention arrives in St. Louis, it will be a hot time in the city. In more ways than one. (June 14)


Toby Carrig: The convention material being distributed at registration this year will include some coupons for downtown St. Louis eateries and attractions, including a number of discounts available through the St. Louis Family Attractions Card. (June 14)


Ronnie Ramos: On Valentine's Day, I was told my job was being eliminated. And my department. A newspaper without a sports department? Yep. It is as radical as it sounds. The bold – and radical – moves undertaken by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution are in response to the changing media landscape. (June 13)


Vicki Michaelis: Since May 2006, four women have been named sports editors at dailies around the country, nearly doubling the number of women guiding sports departments. That is real progress. That is the good news. (June 12)


Mark Faller: We dedicated a reporter to cover the Phoenix Suns playoff run exclusively for our website, azcentral.com(June 11)


Jay Greeson: We have merged our weekly golf page into more of a multi-media approach. It has been very well received – by readers, web visitors and advertisers. (June 10)


Tom White: The Virginian-Pilot has been working on several innovations and changes to the non-traditional story-telling approach. Here are some recent examples. (June 9)


John Cherwa: The NFL recently sent out a new set of guidelines when it comes to the use of audio and video on newspaper web sites. The reaction from APSE membership was loud and long. (June 8)


Brian White: May was "free golf lesson month" with the PGA giving free 10-minute lessons to anyone who signed up at the golf courses in our region. South Florida Sun-Sentinel staff writer Ted Hutton took six in two days. (June 7)


Bill Bradley: Access, seating and internet rights are the main issues facing the writers groups around the country. The APSE's Writers Liaison Committee, which works with writers groups around the country, has issued its first report on these groups in two years. (June 6)


Buddy Martin: ESPN.com columnist Jemele Hill, formerly of the Orlando Sentinel, won the first McKenzie Cup at the Sports Journalism Institute II in St. Petersburg, Fla. And there will be a Sports Journalism Summit III next April at the Poynter Media Institute. (June 5)


Larry Vaught: Recently I had an intriguing question come my way from one of our fellow small newspaper sports editors that I met during the contest judging in California in February. The editor has a staff writer who is having a hard time writing game stories with flare. (June 4)


Lynn Hoppes: As I move up from second vice president to first vice president, I will be given the task of looking at and revamping our yearly contest. It's about time. Brace yourselves, it'll be a doozy. (June 3)


Mike Fannin: Last year's damning study by Richard Lapchick and Co. has prompted much conversation and angst, forcing newspapers around the country to take notice and our organization to acknowledge an obvious problem. So now what? (June 2)


Jim Jenks: Since May 14, when the National Football League announced its new media was released, I have received more than 50 e-mails and phone calls from sports editors complaining that the NFL has gone too far this time and APSE needs to do something about it. (June 1)
