‘Revamping Your Sports Coverage Plan’

‘Revamping Your Sports Coverage Plan’

While game stories are important, adding new features and better coordination to your overall prep and college coverage plan can help maximize your resources. Former Niagara Falls Gazette sports editor and APSE member Tim Schmitt of GateHouse Media talks about building a better plan in advance of the fall sports season.

Schmitt has spent decades in various newsrooms: some print and some broadcast. He was a sports reporter, news reporter and then managing editor of his hometown paper, the Tonawanda News in New York, where he led an award-winning editorial page. He has worked as an editor, staffer and a longtime contributor with the Arizona Daily Sun, the Mesa Tribune, the Arizona Republic, the Buffalo Current, and the Niagara Falls Gazette, where he was executive sports editor over four dailies.
