NEWSLETTER FOR APRIL 2008

The Des Moines Register has exponentially increased its online coverage for big tournaments in all ways, including multiple/layered ways to scan timely results for hundreds of athletes at the state wrestling tournament to fun offerings like the 3-point shooting contest game for the state basketball tournaments. (5/9)


The Dayton (Ohio) Daily News sent three writers, an editor/writer, a photographer and a videographer to New Orleans for the BCS championship game. This event served as a high-profile experiment as the DDN continues to put a greater emphasis on multimedia. (5/9)


Following the Shaw Suburban Media Group's acquisiton of the DeKalb (Ill.) Daily Chronicle, several changes have taken place at the Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake, Ill., where several former sports editors Chris Krug and Jason Schaumburg continue to move up the editorial management ranks. (5/9)


News from the Atlantic Coast, Great Lakes, Southeast and West regions. (5/9)


Larry Vaught: As a small paper sports editor, one huge benefit to being part of APSE has been the opportunity to know AP sports editor Terry Taylor. (May 8)


Michael Anastasi: We're committed to working with you. That was consensus message from commissioners and CEOs – variously cantankerous, gregarious, grumpy, amusing and downright entertaining – of the nation's major professional sports organizations during APSE's annual meetings in New York City last month. (May 7)


Greg Brownell: The APSE's executive committee gave preliminary approval to a proposed amendment to the organization's bylaws during the winter meetings. (May 7)


Toby Carrig: The Capital Times (Madison, Wis.) benefited from being an afternoon paper the day Brett Favre retired with a wire piece on 1A and a sports column and blog online by noon. The following day, the paper added eight pages, including a four-page wrap-around A section with fresh stories and a poster-like cover. Plus more news and moves from the Great Lakes Region. (May 5)


Toby Carrig: Reid Laymance, senior assistant sports editor at the Boston Globe, has been hired to be the assistant managing editor for sports at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Plus, David Sell is going from Colorado Springs to Philadelphia and Tommy Deas has been promoted at Tuscaloosa. (April 28)


The APSE Great Plains Region meeting will be July 21 at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. (April 28)


Bios for the nominees for second and third vice president of APSE. (April 14)


John Cherwa: There seems to be temporary detente with Major League Baseball. After almost six weeks of negotiations, MLB has delivered a credential agreement that may be satisfactory to the majority of the APSE's membership. (April 8)


Mike Bambach: Every newspaper faces the convergence challenge: Serving readers in print and online, while dealing with diminishing resources. At USA Today, Sports launched a new Page 3 format designed to better connect print readers with online coverage. (April 7)


Larry Vaught: As the time for our summer convention in Minneapolis draws closer, I thought it might be a good time to remind myself – and anyone else – about why belonging to APSE is so important. (April 3)


Toby Carrig: Following the Shaw Suburban Media Group's acquisiton of the DeKalb (Ill.) Daily Chronicle, several changes have taken place at the Northwest Herald in Crystal Lake, Ill., where several former sports editors Chris Krug and Jason Schaumburg continue to move up the editorial management ranks. (April 3)


Jack Berninger: Registration for the 35th annual Associated Press Sports Editors convention is under way. Deadline for the $200 fee is June 1. (April 2)


Garry D. Howard: Once again, it's that time to send in your winning contest entries to be posted for the all the world to see on the APSE Web site. (April 1)


All first-place winners need to send a print quality photo (ideally 2 inches wide and 170 dpi resolution for mug shots) to Toby Carrig at tcarrig@semissourian.com as soon as possible. (April 1)


Bill Plaschke of the Los Angeles Times won the sports column writing category for the third time in four years, highlighting final judging results announced Tuesday in the 2007 Associated Press Sports Editors contest. (April 1)
