“From Typewriters at the Sun Office to Live Tweeting at the Super Bowl: How technology has changed sportswriting over a 35-year career”

Registration is closed. If you would like to attend, please contact Margaret Graf at margaretgraf@yahoo.com

Neil Best, Class of ’82, has been a sportswriter at Newsday since 1985, covering everything from college basketball to the New York Giants to sports business and media and everything in between, including the Mets’ run to the World Series last fall. Prior to that he spent two years covering college hockey at the Anchorage (Alaska) Times in 1983 and ’84. He will discuss how changes in technology – especially the Internet and all that it has wrought – have altered the business of sports journalism over the decades, and some ways in which it hasn’t. Afterward he will be available to answer any and all sports-related questions, from what Derek Jeter is really like to what Mike Francesa’s den looks like to how he helped the Giants win Super Bowl XLII.
