Tell me your story: What is it like on the job market for sports journalists?

Last week, Malcolm Moran made a provocative statement in an interview with me.

“For the first time in the history of the industry, a 20-something journalist could have an advantage over a 40-something candidate,” said Moran, who will take over as the new head of the National Sports Journalism Center at Indiana in January.

Moran’s comment struck a chord. Several journalists weighed in with their views.

I thought it would be interesting to accumulate some stories and post them on this site. What are your experiences in the job market as a sports journalist? What is it like for recent graduates? Do 40-somethings really find themselves at a disadvantage?

I would like to use this site as a forum to share experiences in the industry. I think it would be valuable to one and all.

If you have a story to tell, please send me an email at Or leave a comment on this post and I will get back to you.

Look forward to hearing from you.
