New resource for sports professors

Michael Wallace, who covers the Miami Heat for the Miami Herald, has created a service to help better connect sports professionals with college students and professors. I highly recommend you visit his website and see what he can offer students interested in a sports media career. Michael worked here in Oxford for a few years covering Ole Miss for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger and he visited my classes on several occasions. He is wonderful to work with and someone dedicated to teaching college students about sports journalism. I've included his release statement below--
I'm Michael Wallace, a reporter with the Miami Herald. As you're aware, journalism continues to be a rewarding and growing field, as evidenced by the increasing number of Mass Communication and Mass Media programs sprouting up and expanding at colleges throughout the country.

After nearly a decade in the field, I recently reached one of my career goals when I was hired to cover the Miami Heat and the NBA for the Herald, culminating a journey that began when I was a curious reporter for the campus newspaper at Grambling State.

Along the way, we have taken great pleasure in reaching out and sharing experiences in the field with students who have an interest in mass communication, journalism, English or professional writing. Please accept this invitation to visit our web site at, and as you consider bringing guest lecturers or industry professionals to campus, don't hesitate to contact us. We offer tools to help guide, captivate and inspire your students, and are currently scheduling campus visits for the 2007-08 academic year.

Thanks and God Bless,
Michael Wallace
