CFP and Online Chat

A couple of things to pass along this morning, so mark your calendars ...

1. Sports Journalism Chat on Bloggers, Credentialing

The Curley Center for Sports Journalism at Penn State will host an online chat on October 18 at 1pm.

Those competing responsibilities, differing outlooks and resulting decisions about who can and cannot officially cover events will be addressed at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 18, during the first online chat conducted by the John Curley Center for Sports Journalism.

"Who Should be in the Press Box and Why? Issues in Credentialing Bloggers and Journalists" is free and may be accessed online.

Participants include:
