Never before has News and Sports collided at the forefront of headlines than in the past eight months. As athletes continue to use the sports stage to voice their opinions and fight for racial injustice it’s gone beyond a “moment” to become a powerful movement. We’ll discuss these storylines and what’s next from the reporters and writers who are embedded on the front lines.

What You'll Learn from This Session...

  1. The impact this intersection has made as we rapidly approach the election
  2. How athletes have shifted to participating more actively in driving the social justice narrative
  3. Impact of COVID on reporting news and sports information – and how it’s consumed
